Irene Papa, actress. Early on she was talked into going to Hollywood for work. There, she was marketed as a "Greek starlet" and had to give typical cheesecake interviews. The statuesque Athena-looking woman would instead end up going into musings (in that deep voice of hers) on Plato's concept of the soul vs the Epicurean idea of the nature of man. One can only imagine the perplexed reactions.
