Julie Andrews Speaks Out About Carrie Underwood Recreating Her Iconic Role

As an avid The Sound of Music fan (okay, geek … I know every line and I’m not ashamed of it!), it has crossed my mind on several occasions whether Julie Andrews has an opinion on the upcoming live performance of the classic, award-winning film, starring country music megastar, Carrie Underwood. Well, the original cinematic Fraulein Maria has spoken!

“I think she’s great,” affirmed Andrews who was nominated for an Oscar and a Bafta for her performance as the iconic governess. “It’s going to be the original show, I believe, and I think after 40 or 50 years it’s probably time somebody else had a crack at it.”

Meanwhile, Carrie has been spending time auditioning children for the production. Carrie predicts the children will be one of the best parts of the production. “I think once we get in there and I start working with the kiddos, I’ll probably get favorite moments in the show once we start working on it.”

As far as having the opportunity to perform the classic songs from the original production, Carrie explained, “Right now, I’m happy with them all, and I’m happy I get to sing them.”

The three-hour live television production will air December 5th on NBC.
