Audrey Hepburn was born on May 4, 1929 in Brussels, Belgium. Audrey took on a number of roles such as fashion lover, boarding school attendee, WW2 resistance movement aid, ballet student, and many more. With dance and acting in her heart from a young age, Audrey had hopes of moving to New York and starring on Broadway. At the age of 22, her dream was made reality when she moved to the Big Apple and starred in her first role as the title character of the production Gigi.
This role was Audrey’s first step towards fame. As the years progressed, she became an icon for fashion, love, and dance. She won many awards for her contributions in film and on stage including an Emmy, Tony, Grammy, and Academy Award. Today, she remains one of the few actresses to win these awards. As she grew older, her acting soon became her second hobby as her children had won her heart. She became an Ambassador for UNICEF n the late 1980’s, and her sons even established a memorial fund to celebrate the humanitarian work she had begun.
The legacy of Audrey Hepburn continues on today, and we will never forget her infamous work beginning in Belgium and lasting through to America.
