My favorite famous person is Audrey Hepburn. She was active in the movies.
She was born in Brussels which is the capital of Belgium.When she was five years old, she entered in a boarding school in London. And when she was ten years old, she emigrated to Holland. During the Second World War, she engaged in the Resistance for anti-Nazis. She was the same age as Anne Frank. After the war, she got to know Anne Frank and she was very pained by that. Afterward, she got an offer of a part of Anne for a movie of "the Diary of Anne Frank". However, she declined it because she was afraid that she might remember her bitter past. She learned ballet in London and lived some countries in Europe. For that, she has a wide knowledge of English, French, Dutch, Spanish, and Italian.
Before her Hollywood debut, she played supporting roles in movies and on the stage in Europe. And she played the sister of the leading part in the movie of "First Love". When she visited to France for shooting movies, she was picked out by Collette who is a writer and visited to the same place as her for the Broadway stage play of "Gigi". She was picked out for the leading role of Gigi. And she got the role of Ann princess for movies of "Roman Holiday". She made her debut in the screen in America. For that movie, she became famous at a bound. And she also won an Academy Best Actress Award. After that, she appeared in some movies. She retired as an actress after she appeared in the movie of "Always" in 1989.
In her last years, she was active as a goodwill ambassador to UNICEF and went to India, Somalia and so on to work for poor people. She passed away because of colon cancer on January 20th, 1993. Even so more than ten years have passed since she passed away, she was loved by a lot of people all over the world. The reason why I like her is, of course, she is a good actress who has very attractive aura. And one more reason is that I like her way of living. She had very strong convictions and lived on the way what she wanted. I want to be a strong and beautiful lady like her.
