The actor, who performed Sixteen Going on Seventeen in the 1965 cinema, said parties should consider singing the musicals sungs like going to a therapist
Charmian Carr, who played Liesl von Trapp in The Racket 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 character in the Rodgers and Hammersteins 1965 movie, in which she performed the chant Sixteen Going On Seventeen. She was a college student when she auditioned for the film, which also starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.
The actor amply cuddled audiences venerate for the musical, routinely emerging at fan episodes celebrating the film, including sing-a-long concerts 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 illusion. Its merely a kind of therapy. They can move around. They can move and talk back to the screen. They can skip their appointment with the cringe that week.
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.
