Christopher Plummer, who is best known for his appearances in The Sound of Music and Knives Out
passed away in his Connecticut home with his wife, Elaine Taylor, of 53 years by his side.
Lou Pitt, his longtime friend and manager of 46 years said; “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.”
Plummer spent the past 75 years as a stalwart of stage and screen, the latter of which covered more
than 100 films. He is best known for playing Captain John Von Trapp in 1965 Robert Wise-directed classic
The Sound of Music, but he won his Oscar for the 2010 film Beginners, and he was most recently Oscar-
nominated for the Ridley Scott-directed All The Money In The World.
In that film, he replaced Kevin Spacey in the role of J Paul Getty, after Spacey had an #MeToo downfall.
Plummer most recently co-starred in the ensemble of the Rian Johnson-directed Knives Out.
