RIP Charmian Carr

I am 16, going on 73.

Charmian Carr (pictured), who played Liesl in The Sound of Music and sang the teenage love-song (when she was actually 21) “I am 16, going on 17”, has died at the age of 73.

She had dementia prior to her death.

Her career as an actor was short-lived but she will always be remembered for her role as the saccharin-sweet eldest child of the von Trapp family.
