Audrey and Roger.
In bed with Roger Moore last night – well his book - ‘My word is my Bond’ to be exact – I read how Audrey Hepburn, who had been awarded the highest civilian award in the USA: the Medal of Freedom in 1992 - had persuaded Roger to become an ambassador for UNICEF. I never met Roger – he was leaving photographic studios for film studios as I was starting modelling, but for a time we shared the same agent and one of the studios I visited frequently was always singing his praises: Studio Lisa. Lisa was the mother of the actress Dinah Sheridan of ‘Genevieve’ fame.
Both Audrey and Roger have helped children all over the world through their stalwart work for UNICEF and this despite failing health on Audrey’s part and a brush with cancer and a pace maker on Roger’s. In January 1993 Audrey died at her home in Switzerland and Roger told how her son Sean, at the funeral service read her favourite poem and I’ve managed to find it.
