Famous birthdays week #15

Last week:
April 3, 1961 – Eddie Murphy
April 5, 1937 – Colin Powell

Last year we looked at major world events that occurred each week. For 2024 let's look at birthdays of famous people for each week of the year.

For this week, we have:

April 12, 1947 

#1
April 13, 1923

#2
Your task is to guess who each person is. To avoid spoiling it for people who come after you, do NOT put the person's name in the comments! Instead, write something about that person. For example, if your guess for person #1 is “Joe Biden”, write something like “#1 - current US president” in the comments. Don't use the name.

Good luck!
