What happened to the von Trapp children from The Sound of Music?
THE Sound of Music has lost little lustre for fans in the 55 years since its release.
With singing nuns, diabolical Nazis and a few mountains thrown in for good measure, the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical remains an adored classic for movie-goers. But what happened to the actors who played the Von Trapp family children?
Charmian Carr: Liesl von Trapp
Despite Liesl being “16 going on 17” in the film, the actor was in fact 23 when she beat Mia Farrow and Geraldine Chaplin to the coveted role.
Charmian was hugely popular as Leisl von Trapp in the Sound of Music, but she retired from acting soon afterwards to raise her two daughters and open her own interior design store in California.
The actor and singer also wrote two books, Forever Liesl and Letters to Liesl.
Charmian died aged 73 in Los Angeles on September 17, 2016, from complications related to frontotemporal dementia.
