Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer Pay Tribute to Eleanor Parker


Andrews, who played opposite Parker in 'Sound of Music', remembers the actress as a 'charming, elegant and beautiful lady' and Plummer feels the same way.

Eleanor Parker's co-stars in "The Sound of Music" pay tribute to the actress who recently passed away because of pneumonia. Julie Andrews, who played the love rival of Parker's character in the popular movie, said during a promotion for "Saving Mr. Banks" that she was honored to play alongside the Oscar-nominated actress.

"Eleanor was a charming, elegant and beautiful lady. It was an honor to know her and a pleasure to work with her. She was beloved by all who knew her and will be remembered as one of the legends of Hollywood," Andrews said, as quoted by Wenn.

Besides Andrews, Christopher Plummer who played the love interest of Parker's character released a statement following Parker's death. "Eleanor Parker was and is one of the most beautiful ladies I have ever known. I hardly believe the sad news for I was sure she was enchanted and would live forever," said the actor who played Captain Georg von Trapp.

Parker passed away on Monday morning, December 9. A family friend said that the actress died in a medical facility near her house in Palm Springs. Her family was with her during the passing. She was 91.

Parker, who is probably most remembered as Baroness Elsa Schrader in "The Sound of Music", made her big screen debut in 1942's "Busses Roar". She received three Oscar nominations in her career. She was first nominated in 1951 for her role in "Caged". She earned the second nomination for her part in "Detective Story" the next year, while the third nomination was brought by "Interrupted Melody" in 1956.
