The actor, who performed Sixteen Starting on Seventeen in the 1965 cinema, said people should consider singing the musicals hymns like going to a therapist
Charmian Carr, who played Liesl von Trapp in The Resound 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 better known for her persona in the Rodgers and Hammersteins 1965 cinema, in which she play-act the hymn Sixteen Going On Seventeen. She was a college student when she auditioned for the film, which too starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.
The actor amply hugged audiences admiration for the musical, often emerging at fan episodes commemorating the movie, including sing-a-long performances 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 form. Its simply 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 flinch that week.
Carr later wrote a pair of books 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 disastrous news that the treasured& exquisite Charmian Carr, beautiful Liesl, has passed away.
Ted Chapin, chairman of the Rodgers and Hammerstein organisation, said in a statement: Its always heartbreaking when the states members of their own families passes away and in the case of the family of the movie The Reverberate of Music, its especially lamentable when it is the first of the group to go.
