Famous Azoreans? Celebrities w/ancestors from the Azores Islands?

Does anyone know of any? The only "famous" Azorean (or Azorean-Canadian to be technical) I can think of is Nelly Furtado. Just curious 'cause I'm half Azorean... :) Thanks!

    Nuno Bettencourt from the one hit wonder band 'Extreme'. I'm not sure if he was born there but his family is from Terceira, Acores.

    Katy Perry, Joe Perry , Steve Perry, Nuno Bettencourt, and David Lee Roth have parents, or grand parents from the Azores.

    Both my parents are from the Azores.

    I can only think of Nelly Furtado.
