The Sound of Music is celebrating it's 50th anniversary
As fans celebrate it being half a century since Julie Andrews and co. sang their hearts out in Austria, the von Trapp children are unrecognisable nowadays.
After finding fame in one the most popular films of all time, some of them aren't even acting anymore...
Charmian Carr: Liesl von Trapp
Charmain Carr auditioned for The Sound of Music as a 23-year-old after her mother put her forward for the role. She won the role of Liesl over Geraldine Chaplin, Patty Duke, Mia Farrow and Sharon Tate.
Since the movie Carr has gone on to write two books, Forever Liesl and Letters to Liesl, and open her own interior design firm in California.
She retired from acting to raise her two daughters, Jennifer and Emily, and now runs the business.

Nicholas Hammond: Friedrich von Trapp
Despite more than one of the von Trapp children going on to leave the film industry entirely, Nicholas Hammond was one of the actors who continued with his career.
In the movie, he played the second child and elder son, Friedrich von Trapp, who is fourteen years old.
Fans will remember him for putting up a tough exterior and trying to be the man of the family, but he was also very quiet and something of a gentleman.
Hammond went on to appear in several films and TV von trapp wedding dress shows, and most recently he starred in mini series 'Gallipoli' as Henry Nevinson as well as 2014 film 'Turkey Shoot' in which he played General Charles Thatcher II. Hammond is said to have remained close to all his The Sound of Music siblings, particularly Charmian Carr. She, in turn, speaks affectionately of him in her autobiography.

Heather Menzies: Louisa von Trapp
Canadian-born actress Heather Menzies began her career with her role as Louisa in The Sound of Music back in 1965 - fifty years ago.
She's gone on to have a successful career in Hollywood starring in movies such as The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes and Piranha. Menzies also went on to have a career on the small screen starring as Jessica in Logan's Run from 1977–1978 and in Captain America.
She is a mother to four children and has taken a step away from the limelight, of late.

Duane Chase: Kurt von Trapp
Duane is an American software engineer who found his big break in Hollywood as Kurt von Trapp in The Sound of Music.
While he was thrust into the limelight taking a role in the movie, Chase wasn't interested in fame and fortune. Just four years after the movie he joined the United States Forest Service and went on to enrol at the University of California and then the University of Alabama where he earned a master's degree in geology.
Today, he lives in Seattle, and designs computer software for geologists and geophysicists.

Angela Cartwright was born in Cheshire, England, but moved to the US at a young age to appear in TV series Make Room For Daddy.
Cartwright returned to Europe to play the role of Brigitta von Trapp in 1965 but decided she was more interested in TV work after the hit movie. She went on to star in hit TV series Lost in Space from 1965–1968 and was cast in the television movies Scout's Honor in 1980.
Alongside her acting career, Cartwright's fine art is displayed at her studio in Studio City, Los Angeles.

Debbie Turner: Marta von Trapp
Debbie Turner played six-year-old Marta von Trapp in the movie, and fans will remember that she was the first child to show Maria some kindness in the film.
However, shortly after making her appearance in The Sound of Music, Turner left the film industry and returned to her education.
Years later, she pursued interior design in Beverly Hills and Newport Beach, California, and eventually opened a floral and event design company now known as Debbie Turner Originals.
She now lives in Chanhassen, Minnesota where she raised her four daughters with her husband Rick.
Although she is not currently active in the film industry, Turner has made a number of television appearances, including The Oprah Winfrey Show where she discussed the 45th anniversary of The Sound of Music.
