RIP Christopher Plummer

I suspect that if an actor was asked about their career, they would not want to talk about just one role. But that doesn’t mean that the audience feels the same way.

Canadian actor Christopher Plummer died yesterday. He was one of those actors who could never be typecast, the number of characters he played over 70ish years is as long as my arm. For most of us, we know him for one film: The Sound of Music.

Playing opposite Julie Andrews, his Georg von Trapp was a man held back by grief, initially unable to open up to his children. At the time, he was in his mid 30’s, aged up to play a character a decade his senior. Though some might say the movie is sappy and sentimental (as Plummer himself put it), it is charming and thoroughly entertaining. It is no wonder that more than five decades later, it is a beloved classic that has been watched and memorized by generations of fans.

May his memory be a blessing. Z”l.
