Oscar nominees 2012: Before they were stars - slide 6
Christopher Plummer was born December 13, 1929 in Toronto. He was classically trained as a stage actor and headlined for Britain's National Theatre. He made his film debut in 1957's Stage Struck. Throughout his career, he has passed up blockbuster movies for smaller films. He is probably best known as Captain Von Trapp in the 1965 musical movie The Sound of Music, and continues to be in demand. He played in many movies. He is a stunning handsome man and I liked him in Sound Of Music.
"Perhaps I had a wicked childhood. Perhaps I had a miserable youth. But somwhere in my wicked, miserable past. There must have been a moment of truth. For here you are, standing there, loving me. Whether or not you should. So somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good." -Maria & Captain VonTrapp
