 You are on the money there Santa - she also became a well known & respected advocate for her people where she lived her life out in Utopia.

Hi Santa,

I think that is a young George Clooney. His jaw line and eyebrows have that distinctive appearance.

 Bloody hell Ted, that was quick, your right it is George Clooney, lets have another pic.smile

"

George Timothy Clooney[2] (born May 6, 1961) is an American actor and filmmaker. He is the recipient of numerous accolades, including a British Academy Film Award, four Golden Globe Awards, and two Academy Awards; one for his acting and the other as a producer. He has been honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award in 2015, the Honorary César in 2017, AFI Life Achievement Award in 2018, and the Kennedy Center Honors in 2022.[3][4]

Clooney started his career in television, gaining wide recognition in his role as Dr. Doug Ross on the NBC medical drama ER from 1994 to 1999, for which he received two Primetime Emmy Award nominations. He expanded to leading roles in films, with his breakthrough role in From Dusk till Dawn (1996).[5][6] followed by superhero film Batman & Robin (1997), Steven Soderbergh's Out of Sight (1998), David O. Russell's Three Kings, and the Coen brothers' O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000). Greater stardom came from his starring role in Soderbergh's Ocean's film series from 2001 to 2007.

Clooney made his directorial debut with the spy drama Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002), and has since directed the historical drama Good Night, and Good Luck (2005), the political drama The Ides of March (2011), the war film The Monuments Men (2014), and the science fiction film The Midnight Sky (2020). Clooney won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the thriller Syriana (2005), and earned Best Actor nominations for the legal thriller Michael Clayton (2007), and the comedy-dramas Up in the Air (2009) and The Descendants (2011). He received the Academy Award for Best Picture for co-producing the political thriller Argo (2012). He has also starred in Burn After Reading (2008), The American (2010), Gravity (2013), Hail, Caesar! (2016), and Ticket to Paradise (2022).

This one may go pretty quickly too. It is a couple who were often working together, though notable in their own way.

Correct Santa, that pic was Ron and Valerie Taylor.

 

Ron and Valerie Taylor opened our eyes to the wonders of marine life, and specifically sharks. Ron and Valerie were born in 1934 and 1935 respectively, and met as members of the St George Spearfishing Club in Sydney.

Both were competitive spearfishers, with Valerie winning the national titles three years in a row in the early 1960s and Ron the world championship in 1965. During this time their fascination with the oceans increased and prompted them to give up spearfishing, and focus instead on marine research and filmmaking. They were the first people to film great white sharks without the protection of a cage.

By then Ron had been building underwater acrylic housings for both still and movie cameras for over a decade. In 1963 the couple made the film Shark Hunter, which sold in both Australia and the United States. Over the next decade they produced films and television series that gained international renown and awards, including the American feature film, Blue Water, White Death.

In the early 1970s, they were approached by Hollywood producer Steven Spielberg to work on Jaws. They backed this up with the productions Sharks for TimeLife Television and Orca for Dino de Laurentiis.

Ron and Valerie had mixed feelings about the public response to Jaws. While initially the film generated fear of the greater shark species, in time it evolved into a sense of fascination, and then a growing understanding that they should be protected.

They continued shooting underwater feature films, including Blue LagoonThe Last Wave and The Island of Dr Moreau. For Operation Shark Bite, Valerie donned a chain-mail suit to see if it could successfully protect against shark bites. It did.

In the 1980s and 90s, Ron and Valerie continued to research shark deterrents and worked hard to promote marine conservation. In 1986 Valerie was appointed Rider of the Order of the Golden Ark for marine conservation by his Royal Highness Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. In 1992 Ron and Valerie Taylor were awarded the Australian Geographic Societys Adventure of the Year Award and in 2003 were made Members of the Order of Australia for their conservation efforts.

Ron passed away from cancer 9th September, 2012.

Valerie is still going and interested in saving sharks:

Jeannie Gunn it is Ken, most widely known as the author of We Of The Never Never.

Who's the next candidate?

 

Life

Jeannie Taylor was born in Carlton, Melbourne, the last of five children of Thomas Johnstone Taylor. Taylor was a Baptist minister who went into business and later worked on the Melbourne Argus.[1] Matriculating through Melbourne University after being educated at home, she ran a school with her sisters between 1889 and 1896, after which she worked as a visiting teacher. On New Year's Eve 1901, she married the explorer, pastoralist and journalist Aeneas James Gunn, in the Presbyterian Church.[2] Shortly after, in early 1902, they travelled to Darwin (then called Palmerston) and then to Elsey, an outlying cattle station on the Roper River, near the current town of Mataranka. After a year at the Elsey, Jeannie Gunn's husband died in March 1903 from complications of malaria and she returned to live in Melbourne. She never returned to the Northern Territory.

In Melbourne, after being encouraged by friends, she began writing the books for which she would become famous. The Little Black Princess: a True Tale of life in the Never-Never Land, published in 1905 and revised in 1909, chronicled the childhood of an Indigenous Australian protagonist named Bett-Bett. Gunn's second book, We of the Never Never (1908), was styled as a novel but was actually a recounting of her time in the Northern Territory with only the names of people changed to obscure their identities. We of the Never Never sold more than 300,000 copies over thirty years, and was translated into German in the 1920s. In a 1931 poll by The Herald (Melbourne) its author was voted the third most popular Australian novelist after Marcus Clarke and Rolf Boldrewood.[1] By 1990, over a million copies of the book had been sold.

Crikey Ken, you handed it to me on a plate, Jennifer Jones.smile

I'm a romantic at heart.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5K1W2X69GpY

 

 

"Love is a many splendored thing.

It's the April rose that only grows in the early spring.

Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living.

That golden crown that makes a man a king.

Once on a high and windy hill

In the morning mist two lovers kissed and the world stood still.

Then your fingers touched my silent heart and taught it how to sing.

Yes, true love a many-splendored thing."
