My Favorite Actors/Actresses

Audrey Hepburn

(May 4 1929 – January 20, 1933)

Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday

  I have loved Audrey Hepburn as an actress ever since I was 9 after my parents had brought me to a Winnipeg Production of “My Fair Lady.” When we got home the first thing my Dad did was buy the VHY of the Audrey Hepburn and ex Harrison representation. I loved the way she had of showing expression with her eyes, and I thought that her voice was like, the most beautiful I have ever heard. Of course now I know that it was really the voice of the talented Marni Nixon that I had admired so.  To me, Audrey Hepburn brings a little bit of fresh air into the entertainment industry.  The usual women that get into the film industry have always been sexy goddesses, but Audrey Hepburn did not earn her fame that way. She has always been unique in that she was quite feminine and pretty in a  way that was not  sexy.  My favorites are; My Fair Lady, Sabrina, and Roman Holiday. 

 

  Julie Andrews

(October 1, 1935- Present)

Friendly rivals Audrey Hepburn and Julie Andrews at the 1965 Academy Awards. Hepburn beat out Andrews for the leading role in the film of My Fair Lady, but Andrews won the year's Best Actress Oscar for her performance in Mary Poppins.

          Today Julie Andrews is known as one of the best known musical theatre icons. Until a failed throat operation in 1998, she was able to hit an incredible 4 octaves.  Voice students listen to her with great respect because she was a master of “talking on pitch,” and vocal expression. She is known for singing in productions of Camelot, My Fair Lady, and Cinderella. Walt Disney himself was in the audience for one production of Camelot, and right then and there he decided that Julie Andrews would be perfect to play the role of a British nanny who was, “practically perfect in every way.” That film, of course, was Mary Poppins.  I admire Julie Andrews because she carries herself with a grace and expression which only a singer can posses. My favorite Julie Andrews movie is The Sound of Music.
