“The Sound of Music” is one of the most famous and beloved musical films of all times. Many of its iconic cast members are still acting and look entirely different from what they did in the movie.


The film is about an aspiring nun, Maria (played by Julie Andrews), who does not quite fit in in her convent and is sent to work as a hostess at the home of a naval captain, played by Christopher Plummer.

“The Sound of Music” is set in Austria during WW2 which creates tension and challenges for the characters.

Christopher Plummer, who played Captain von Trapp in the film, has also had a long acting career. Since “The Sound of Music” he has acted in “The Last Station,” “Remember,” and “Waterloo,” amongst others.

He is 89 years old and has received two Tony Awards, two Emmy Awards, the Canadian Screen Award for Lifetime Achievement and an Oscar Award.
