Moviestar Monday: Julie Andrews

Yes I'm sorta on an old movie star kick, but bear with me. 

Julie Andrews is an incredible singer, dancer, director, author and actress whom most of you know for The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins; two classic movies that catapulted her to stardom. 

           Both movies are renowned for their incredible scores and songs and the happiness imbedded in each movie. In The sound of Music Julie Andrews gives Maria a fierceness and conviction that stop her from becoming a preachy caricature of a wanna-be nun who loves singing. In Mary Poppins she so fun, but not exactly silly. Really she knew how to create a character you loved to watch. At the age of 66 she starred in the Disney movie The Princess Diaries with Anne Hathaway and since then has done numerous voice acting parts
           Her voice has such an amazing tone and range, it's a shame that she still can't sing after her surgery. Seriously, youtube her if you cant imagine her voice off the top of your head.
