Audrey Hepburn and Marie-Louise Habets on the set of The Nun’s Story
Kathryn Hulme Papers

Writer Kathryn Hulme and Marie-Louise Habets, her lifelong friend and her inspiration for The Nun’s Story, worked as consultants on the film version of Hulme’s best-selling book. Audrey Hepburn starred in the film as Sister Luke, the character based on Habets’s experiences as a nun who chose to leave the convent during World War II to support the French Resistance. Hepburn admired both women and kept in touch with them for years afterward.
