The actor, who performed Sixteen Going on Seventeen in the 1965 movie, said parties should consider singing the musicals songs 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 good known for her persona in the Rodgers and Hammersteins 1965 cinema, in which she acted the anthem Sixteen Extending On Seventeen. She was a college student when she auditioned for the cinema, which too starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.
The actor amply hugged audiences adoration for the musical, routinely appearing at fan affairs celebrating the cinema, including sing-a-long recitals 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 appearance. Its merely a kind of care. They can move around. They can dance and talk back to the screen. They can hop-skip their appointment with the wither that week.
Carr subsequently wrote a duo of works about her ordeals, Forever Liesl and Letters To Liesl. She went on to star with Anthony Perkins in Evening Primrose, the Stephen Sondheim video 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 shocking bulletin that the treasured& exquisite Charmian Carr, beautiful Liesl, has passed away.
Ted Chapin, president of the Rodgers and Hammerstein organisation, said in a statement: Its ever heartbreaking when a member of the family overtakes away and in the case of the family of the movie The Resonate of Music, its especially lamentable when it is the first of the group to go.
