The actor, who performed Sixteen Leading on Seventeen in the 1965 movie, answered parties should consider singing the musicals psalms like going to a therapist

Charmian Carr, who played Liesl von Trapp in The Bang of Music, has died at the age of 73.

The actors spokesman said she died on Saturday in Los Angeles, of complications from a rare form of dementia.

Carr was excellent known for her persona in the Rodgers and Hammersteins 1965 movie, in which she performed the hymn Sixteen Exiting On Seventeen. She was a college student when she auditioned for the film, which too starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.

The actor fully cuddled audiences admiration for the musical, routinely showing at fan occasions commemorating the movie, including sing-a-long accomplishments at the Hollywood Bowl.

I tell people that they should consider sing-a-long Sound Of Music like going to a therapist, she told Associated Press before a 2005 look. Its exactly a kind of rehabilitation. They can move around. They can dance and talk back to the screen. They can hop-skip their appointment with the shrink that week.

Carr afterwards wrote a duo of journals about her ordeals, Forever Liesl and Letters To Liesl. She went on to star with Anthony Perkins in Evening Primrose, the Stephen Sondheim television musical.

Kym Karath, who played Gretl, the youngest of the Von Trapp children, wrote on Twitter: It is with infinite sadness that I share the regrettable report that the precious& elegant Charmian Carr, beautiful Liesl, has passed away.

Ted Chapin, president of the Rodgers and Hammerstein organisation, said in a statement: Its ever lamentable when a member of the family overtakes away and in the case of the children of the movie The Resonate of Music, its especially sad when it is the first of the group to go.
