Born 4 May 1929 – Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn, born Audrey Kathleen Ruston on May 4, 1929, in Ixelles, Belgium, was a sparkling talent who rose from a difficult childhood to become a Hollywood icon. Her early years were marked by the hardships of World War II, which she endured in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands. Despite these challenges, Hepburn pursued her passion for ballet and later acting. Her breakthrough came in 1953 with the romantic comedy “Roman Holiday,” for which she won an Academy Award. She captivated audiences with her elegance, wit, and genuine charm throughout her career in films like “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “My Fair Lady.” Hepburn consciously chose to dedicate more time to her family in the late 1960s, but she continued appearing in select films. Sadly, her life was cut short on 20 January 1993 when she passed away in Tolochenaz, Switzerland, from complications of appendicular cancer. Beyond her film legacy, Hepburn is remembered for her humanitarian work with UNICEF, where she served as a Goodwill Ambassador for children’s rights.
