Christopher Plummer, the Canadian-born actor both in movies(Hollywood) and in theatre(Broadway) has died today at age 91.
His talent was immense, versatile and diversified. He was very adaptable in getting into roles ,taking each character as his own and becoming each character as well.
He holds the record of being the oldest actor to ever win an Oscar(Academy Award).
He exudes an aura of being debonair, dapper,elegant and handsome on and off the screen, even as he gets older through the years. He is like wine which gets better with age.
I will always remember him as Captain Georg Von Trapp, the stiff, temperamental widower of a brood of 7 offsprings in the movie—The Sound of Music –-wherein he finally met his match with the novice turned governess/nanny named Maria(played by Julie Andrews ,another entertainment icon) to whom he finally opened and gave his heart to.
Adieu, Sir as you travel on to the great beyond. I will always remember you as I hear the song lyrics to Edelweiss.
So long, farewell!
Captain Von Trapp has left the building!
