Oscar-winning actress Audrey Hepburn was one of the most celebrated stars of the silver screen, but she had a role that almost nobody knew about. According to a new book, Hepburn was a spy during World War II.
“The maddeningly private actress, who died in 1993, had dropped hints about her work with the Dutch Resistance during World War II, and now a new book puts the whole story together, providing an in-depth look at her life during the conflict,” The New York Post reports.
The book is “Dutch Girl: Audrey Hepburn and World War II,” from GoodKnight Books. Author Robert Matzen “combed secret files, talked to Hepburn’s family and tracked down diaries to uncover new information,” The Post reports. “The biggest surprise to many will be Hepburn’s work with the Dutch Resistance against Nazi occupation. She certainly seemed an unlikely hero.”
