Pantheon: Elizabeth McGovern.

Her dad was a Northwestern law prof. Born in Chicago 50 years ago, she has malleable ageless looks, and now lives in London. She played teenagers and 65-year-olds at 24 in Dan Hull's favorite movie, "Once Upon a Time in America". "America" is a long and critically controversial 1984 film about three stages in the lives of Jewish Manhattan hoods. We do forgive Ms. McGovern for dropping out of Juilliard to work on Robert Redford's first directing project. Add this uncannily eternal Total Betty to our Pantheon.
