Christopher Plummer Dead at 91


Canadian actor Christopher Plummer died on Friday at age 91, according to his talent agent.

According to Deadline, the actor died in his Connecticut home, where he lived with his wife, actress Elaine Taylor, who he’d been married to since 1970.

“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. 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,” his manager Lou Pitt said in a statement to Deadline.

A prolific star of both stage and screen, Plummer is probably best remembered for his portrayal of Captain Von Trapp in 1965’s The Sound of Music. According to his IMDb page, the actor had been providing his voice to the film Heroes of the Golden Mask, which is currently filming.
