Julie Andrews

Since her iconic debut in films nearly 40years ago, Julie Andrews has been one of the most beloved and honored actresses in American movies. Our country's love affair with this extraordinary actress and singer began even earlier, when she arrived on the New York stage, nearly a half-century ago, to launch what has become a truly legendary career in the American musical theater. She is a beacon of happiness and light to generations of filmgoers as a result of her career-making performances in two of the best-loved film musicals of all time. She immortalized the music and lyrics of the great Lerner and Loewe in a pair of now-classic musicals from Broadway's golden age. She brought her unique blend of elegant wit and intelligence to television when she starred in some of the best-regarded musical specials the medium has ever produced.
