Los Angeles, Dec 17 (IANS) Hollywood star Christopher Plummer says that Dame Julie Andrews’ “best” performance was in the classic “The Sound of Music”.
“It’s not entirely true that I loathe ‘The Sound of Music’. I think Julie Andrews, who I adore, is absolutely lovely in it,” Plummer told the Metro newspaper, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I think it is her most free and naked performance – her best. But when you do a film with 1,000 nuns, there’s a danger it can run over into a deep abyss of mawkishness,” he added.
He also found the role of Captain Von Trapp in the film was “boring” after he had starred on Broadway in many iconic roles including “Hamlet” and “Macbeth”.
Now, Plummer is starring in the new movie “The Man Who Invented Christmas” alongside Dan Stevens who plays “A Christmas Carol” author Charles Dickens.
The film follows Dickens who finds himself in financial trouble after writing three unsuccessful novels in a row.
