"I’m just an ordinary person who has done extraordinary things" - Julia Roberts

"I'm not a film star; I am an actress. Being a film star is such a false life, lived for fake values and for publicity"( Vivien Leigh)
Aedín includes a selection of soundtracks from films starring English actress Vivien Leigh. She won two Academy Awards for Best Actress for her iconic performances as Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind and Blanche DuBois in the film version of A Streetcar Named Desire. Plus hit songs from La La Land, Wicked, The Sound of Music and My Fair Lady.
