Audrey Hepburn, leading lady in "Breakfast at Tiffany’s," "Roman Holiday," and "My Fair Lady," learned to improvise as a member of the Dutch resistance during WWII. Compelled by the suffering she experienced herself during wartime and willing to use her star power for a greater good, Audrey became a UNICEF warrior after her Hollywood career, completing seven missions to war-torn countries in the last five years of her life.
