Audrey Hepburn fue el nombre artístico de Audrey Kathleen Ruston, actriz británica de la época dorada de Hollywood, considerada por el American Film Institute como la tercera mayor leyenda femenina del cine estadounidense.

Nacida en Ixelles, un distrito de Bruselas, Hepburn pasó su infancia entre Bélgica, Inglaterra y los Países Bajos, incluyendo a Arnhem que estuvo ocupada por los alemanes durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. En Ámsterdam, estudió ballet con Sonia Gaskell antes de trasladarse a Londres en 1948 para seguir sus estudios de ballet con Marie Rambert y trabajar como corista en las producciones musicales de West End.

Después de aparecer en varias películas británicas y protagonizar la obra de Broadway de 1951 Gigi, Hepburn interpretó el papel principal de Roman Holiday , el cual le valió un Óscar a la mejor actriz. Más tarde actuando en películas de éxito como Sabrina , The Nun's Story , Breakfast at Tiffany's , Charade , My Fair Lady y Wait Until Dark , Hepburn recibió nominaciones a los premios Óscar, Globo de Oro y BAFTA y devengó un premio Tony por su actuación teatral la obra de Broadway de 1954 Ondina. Hepburn sigue siendo una de las pocas personas que han ganado un Óscar, un Emmy, un Grammy y un Tony. Hepburn fue la primera actriz en ganar un Oscar, un Globo de Oro y un premio BAFTA por una sola actuación: Roman Holiday en 1954.

Apareció en menos películas a medida que su vida siguió, dedicando gran parte de su vida posterior a Unicef. A pesar de haber contribuido con la organización desde 1954, trabajó en algunas de las comunidades más profundamente desfavorecidas de África, América del Sur y Asia entre 1988 y 1992. Fue galardonada con la Medalla Presidencial de la Libertad en reconocimiento a su labor como embajadora de buena voluntad de Unicef a finales de 1992. Un mes más tarde murió de cáncer apendicular en su casa en Suiza a principios de 1993 a la edad de 63 años.

„I am more than ever awed and overwhelmed by the monumental talents it was my great, great privilege to work for and with.“

—  Audrey Hepburn
Context: I am more than ever awed and overwhelmed by the monumental talents it was my great, great privilege to work for and with. There is therefore no way I can thank you for this beautiful award without thanking all of them, because it is they who helped and honed, triggered and taught, pushed and pulled, dressed and photographed — and with endless patience and kindness and gentleness, guided and nurtured a totally unknown, insecure, inexperienced, skinny broad into a marketable commodity. I am proud to have been in a business that gives pleasure, creates beauty, and awakens our conscience, arouses compassion, and perhaps most importantly, gives millions a respite from our so violent world. Thank you, Screen Actors Guild and friends, for this huge honor — and for giving me this unique opportunity to express my deepest gratitude and love to all of those who have given me a career that has brought me nothing but happiness. Statement accepting the Screen Actors Guild Achievement Award, read by Julia Roberts, because of Audrey's failing health. (January 1993)

„I always love it when people write me and say "I was having a rotten time, and I walked into a cinema and saw one of your movies, and it made such a difference."“

—  Audrey Hepburn
Context: People associate me with a time when movies were pleasant, when women wore pretty dresses in films and you heard beautiful music. I always love it when people write me and say "I was having a rotten time, and I walked into a cinema and saw one of your movies, and it made such a difference."

„Living is like tearing through a museum.“

—  Audrey Hepburn
Context: Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering — because you can't take it all in at once. As quoted in Audrey Hepburn : A Bio-bibliography (1994) by David Hofstede
