Carr later wrote a duet 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 information that the treasured& beautiful Charmian Carr, beautiful Liesl, has passed away.

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