Oldest oscar winner
Actor Christopher Plummer has died
He made his breakthrough in 1965 with “Sound of Music”. The character actor with haunted eyes was confident on both the theater stages and the blockbuster, such as in the recent “Knife Out”. Christopher Plummer has now died at the age of 91.
The multi-award winning actor Christopher Plummer is dead. The actor died at the age of 91, as reported by US media, citing his manager. Plummer died in his Connecticut farm house in the presence of his wife Ellen Taylor.
The report stated that Chris was an extraordinary man who deeply loved and respected his job with great old-fashioned manners, self-inferiority, and music of words.
Plummer, who was born in Canada, played the lead role of the elite widower Captain George von Trapp in “The Sound of Music” in his 75-year career with Julie Andrews. At the age of 82, he won his first Oscar for a supporting role in 2012 with Evan McGregor in “Beginners”. He went down as the oldest Oscar winner in history.
The haunted-eyed actor made his debut on the stage of the theater and particularly excelled in Shakespearean plays such as “Othello” or “Macbeth”. The New York Times made headlines around 1982 that he had seen Shakespeare’s best performance ever. His film Vita ranges from “Malcolm X” to “12 Monkey” to “A Beautiful Mind”.
Plummer was indeed always changing, as his expressive, but rarely intrusive game was assured until the end in the 2019 crime comedy “Knife Out”.
