Few actresses from the golden age of Hollywood have had the lasting impact that Audrey Hepburn has had. You can still catch her on posters and handbags today. Firstly, she was a great performer. Hepburn had the ability to take on so many different roles. She played royalty in Roman Holiday, a peasant in My Fair Lady and a ditzy socialite in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Unlike most modern day actresses, she wasn’t just a rich person locked away in a mansion either. She actually gave back. Before she was an actress, Hepburn worked for the Dutch Resistance during WW2. When she retired from acting she took up humanitarian work and went to places like Sudan and Ethiopia.
