The actor, who performed Sixteen Departing on Seventeen in the 1965 film, remarked beings should consider singing the musicals psalms like going to a therapist
Charmian Carr, who played Liesl von Trapp in The Music 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 capacity in the Rodgers and Hammersteins 1965 cinema, in which she acted the anthem Sixteen Disappearing On Seventeen. She was a college student when she auditioned for the cinema, which too starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.
The actor fully hugged audiences reverence for the musical, routinely seeming at devotee affairs commemorating the movie, including sing-a-long renditions at the Hollywood Bowl.
I be told that they should consider sing-a-long Sound Of Music like going to a therapist, she told Associated Press before a 2005 figure. Its exactly a kind of rehabilitation. They can move around. They can dance and talk back to the screen. They can skip their appointment with the shrink that week.
Carr later wrote a pair of works about her experiences, 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 tragic report that the precious& beautiful Charmian Carr, beautiful Liesl, has passed away.
Ted Chapin, chairman of the Rodgers and Hammerstein organisation, said in a statement: Its ever lamentable when a member of the family legislates away and in the event of its the family of the movie The Resound of Music, its specially lamentable when it is the first of the group to go.
