So, who was Jane Asher, why did she have to do with Paul?

Short answer:

British actress (theatre, radio, TV) since childhood, Jane Asher met the Beatles 18 April 1963 while interviewing them for the Radio Times. She began a relationship with Paul, and introduced him to theatre and classical music/guitar.

The Asher family home became Paul's home-base in London from 1963 to 1966. Jane's brother Peter was half of Peter & Gordon, popular singing duo who had hits with Lennon-Mccartney songs. She helped Paul choose and buy homes in London (Cavendish Avenue) and Scotland (High Park Farm). Jane inspired some of Paul's best love/anguish songs ("I'm Looking Through You" etc.).

Jane was Paul's fiancee until July 1968, when they ended the relationship.

Maybe that's not so short. :-)
