Music star Christopher Plummer dies aged 91 after 'hitting his head' at home

A popular music star, Christopher Plummer died aged 91 in his Connecticut home after falling and hitting his head - as his Sound of Music co-star Julie Andrews led the tributes, calling him a 'consummate actor' and a 'cherished friend'.

Plummer, the dashing award-winning Canadian actor who played Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music, died early Friday morning with his wife of 53 years, Elaine Taylor, by his side.

According to reports, he suffered a head injury after falling.

Plummer is survived by Elaine and his actress daughter, Amanda, from his first of three marriages.

Leading the tributes after his death, his co-star Julie Andrews said in statement: 'I treasure the memories of our work together and all the humour and fun we shared through the years.

'My heart and condolences go out to his lovely wife Elaine and his daughter Amanda.'


An accomplished Shakespearean actor honored for his varied stage, television and film work in a career that spanned more than six decades, Plummer became the oldest Academy Award acting winner in history at the age of 82 in 2012.

'Chris was an extraordinary man who deeply loved and respected his profession with great old fashion manners, self deprecating humor and the music of words,' his longtime friend and manager Lou Pitt said in a statement confirming his death. 

He was a National Treasure who deeply relished his Canadian roots. Through his art and humanity, he touched all of our hearts and his legendary life will endure for all generations to come.

He will forever be with us.'

Plummer appeared in more than 100 films and also was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of Russian author Leo Tolstoy in 2009's 'The Last Station.'

He won two Tony Awards for his Broadway work, two Emmy Awards for TV work and performed for some of the world's top theater companies.

But for many fans his career was defined by his performance alongside Andrews as a stern widower in 'The Sound Of Music'.
