I thought Audrey Hepburn was Belgian??

She was born in Belgium to a British father of Austrian descent and a mother who was a Dutch aristocrat. So I guess you could say she was half British/half Dutch. She held a British passport because of her father but I think she considered herself British, Belgian and Dutch. For the purposes of this quiz though, the quizmaster is technically correct. :-)
