The Best of Julie Andrews

Dame Julie Andrews celebrated her 81st birthday on 1st October – the beloved film and stage actress has enjoyed a glittering career that’s spanned nearly seven decades.

She first came to fame on the stage, where she starred alongside Rex Harrison in the Broadway debut of My Fair Lady in 1956.

Next she took Hollywood by storm – she won an Academy Award for her performance in Mary Poppins and her most beloved film – The Sound of Music – is still popular with audiences today.

At 81 years old she shows no signs of stopping – in 2015 she directed a new stage version of My Fair Lady for the Sydney Opera House and is currently filming a new children’s television series to debut on Netflix in 2017.

So to celebrate, today we’re looking back on some of the best Julie Andrews performances through the years.

I love Julie Andrews!!
Saw her first in Mary Poppins aged 8 - then twice more by age 10, and decided I wanted to be her when I grew up! Sadly, I grew too round to reach my dreams - but she remains my inspiration, and I still occasionally dream about being Maria, Mary, Victoria, Milly, etc.!!
Victor/Victoria has become one of my favourite ever films - and I always have to watch it whenever it's on TV, despite having had it first on video and then on DVD for years.
My elder daughter loves Julie Andrews, too - and is obsessed with the Sound of Music!!!!
