The famous “Sound of Music” and “Mary Poppins” star, Julie Andrews, was recently felicitated with AFI’s 48th Life Achievement Award. To celebrate her journey in filmdom, the Von Trapp siblings, along with their beloved governess Maria (aka Julie), enthralled the gathering with their evergreen Do-Re-Mi!

Watch here:

Among cast members who played the von Trapp children, present were Nicholas Hammond (Friedrich), Duane Chase (Kurt), Angela Cartwright (Brigitta), Debbie Turner (Marta) and Kym Karath (Gretl). The 86-year-old stated: “I mean, Christmases, maybe birthdays and certainly get-togethers, but we just bonded so hard that I think we’re family anyway.”

The recent reunion was bittersweet for the star. Christopher Plummer, who played Capt. Georg von Trapp, her love interest in the film, died last year at age 91.”We were friends for years,” said Andrews, adding that she “adored” him tremendously.

“It really was the most beautifully crafted movie,” she said. “I mean, the details in the movie, first of all, the scenery, children, song, music – all of it.”

The classic musical tells the story of the real-life von Trapp family, which escaped the Nazis in Austria. It went on to win the Oscar for best picture. Andrews received an Academy Award nomination for her role as Maria, a woman who is sent by her convent in 1930s Austria to become a governess to the seven children of a widowed naval officer.

The reunion wasn’t a complete one. In addition to Plummer’s passing, Charmian Carr, who played Liesl, died at age 73 from a rare form of dementia in 2016. Her on-screen sister, Heather Menzies-Urich, who played Louisa, died at age 68 after she was diagnosed with cancer in 2017.
