Audrey Hepburn is set to take our screens by storm once again this weekend, over fifty years after her heyday, in a new chocolate advert.
Cinema's finest star is brought back to life thanks to clever use of computer generated imagery in the new commercial from Galaxy.
The clip will debut this Sunday during ITV's Mr Selfridge and is set during the 1950s on Italy’s Amalfi Coast, conjuring up hints of Hepburn's classic movie roles - including 1953's Roman Holiday, for which she won an Oscar.
The ad uses the soundtrack Moon River, the Academy Award-winning song written for the actress and first performed in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It also features a custom-made vintage polka dot dress.

This time, Hepburn’s sons, who control her estate, authorised the use of her image, for which they will have received a fee. Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti say their mother would be “proud” of her new role, adding in a press release that she “often spoke about her love of chocolate and how it lifted her spirit”.
