Happy Birthday Vivien Leigh
Vivien Leigh was born in Bengal, British India in 1913. Her family later moved to London England, where Vivien kept herself busy as a theatre actress. She made her film debut in 1935 and the rest is history. Did you know Vivien was offered the supporting role of Isabella in "Wuthering Heights"? She refused it though, as she only wanted the lead role which had already been given to Merle Oberon. Luckily, not too long after that she landed the lead in "Gone with the Wind", which won her the Oscar that year. Fun fact - Vivien was known for her love of cats, and had many during her lifetime.
