As one of the most iconic, beloved actresses ever to grace the stage and screen, Julie Andrews became a household name in 1964 with her Academy Award–winning performance as a magical nanny in Mary Poppins. She followed that epic role with her captivating portrayal of Maria in the classic motion picture The Sound of Music, thereby solidifying her status as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actresses. Not a bad way to break into the movie business for a young woman who experienced a difficult childhood near London during the Blitz of World War II.
