Born in Dublin Ireland, Kassandra received her first introduction to Marilyn Monroe at the age of 5 while watching her films with her mother, who was a big fan herself and also happens to bear a resemblance to the late movie icon. Kassandra’s Mother sang Marilyn's songs with her father who played the double bass in a jazz band like Jack Lemon in "Some Like It Hot", which is Kassandra’s favorite Monroe film.
On her 11th birthday Kassandra, and her Mother, made a special trip from Ireland to Hollywood so she could place her hands and feet in Marilyn's famous imprints in front of TCL Chinese Theaters formerly known as Mann’s Chinese Theaters.
