Nancy CARROLL (1903-1965) [] IRISH connection: American actress, born in New York City of Irish parents. She was christened Ann Veronica Lahiff, which is a name I've heard before here in Ireland, though it's not that common. Amusingly, some sources spell it as 'LaHiff' as if it's French or something!

Nancy Carroll.... In spite of her ability to successfully tackle light comedies, tearful melodramas, and even musicals, and as well as garnering considerable praise by the critics and public (she received the most fan mail of any star in the early 1930s), she was released by the studio. In the mid-1930s under a four-film contract with Columbia Pictures, she made four rather insignificant films and was no longer an A-list actress.
