Default Actor Audrey Hepburn

Was Audrey Hepburn an actor? Maybe saying she was a fine actress back when she was active was politically acceptable back then, and now we must change to modern usage and call her an actor.

We seem to have given up on personholes and the like, but avoiding sexism is still with us. What do you think?

By the way, only by reading a biography did I learn that her mother was a Dutch baroness, but yes, her father was English. Obviously, no connection with the other famous Hepburn of the time.
