Charmian Carr, who played Liesl von Trapp in The Clang 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 character in the Rodgers and Hammersteins 1965 film, in which she acted the carol Sixteen Travelling On Seventeen. She was a college student when she auditioned for the movie, which also starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.
The actor amply embraced audiences respect for the musical, routinely emerging at follower events celebrating the film, including sing-a-long executions at the Hollywood Bowl.

Carr later wrote a duo of journals about her experiences, 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, a very young of the Von Trapp children, wrote on Twitter: It is with infinite sadness that I share the tragic report that the treasured& beautiful Charmian Carr, beautiful Liesl, has passed away.
