Ah! The life of an English noblewoman — it's not just for the English anymore.

In fact, England's newest countess was born in the U.S.A., and first gained fame playing a wild rebel on the 1994-'95 series "My So-Called Life."

Yes, A.J. Langer, better known as Rayanne Graff to fans of the short-lived teen drama, is now officially the Countess of Devon.

And she even has the castle to show for it!

Langer — who also made notable appearances on "Baywatch" and "Seinfeld" during her 1990s TV heyday — married husband Charles Peregrine Courtenay in 2005.

According to The Telegraph, the couple met in Las Vegas, when he was touring with his rugby team.

But despite being married for 10 years, Langer only became a countess last week, when her father-in-law passed away.

On August 18, Courtenay's father, the 18th Earl of Devon, died, making him the 19th Earl of Devon.

The couple and their two children (Lady Joscelyn and Lord Jack) can now call the 4,000-acre Powderham Castle estate their home.

Not a bad so-called life to have.
