Biography and first steps to the stage

  Julie Andrews was born in Walton, England in 1935. She first appeared on the stage in 1942, at the age of seven, and at the age of twelve, she starred in the annual Star and Light performance and took first place. At the age of sixteen, she played Cinderella. Already during the war, Andrews always performed in London's music halls, and after becoming an adult she moved to the United States, where she first played "The Favorite", then entered Broadway, where "My Beautiful Lady" was widely recognized by Andrews. The actress is then invited to Hollywood. In Soviet screens, director Robert Weisz's "Sounds of Music" film was released (1965, with this film, Weiss breaks all musical records, and "Twenty Century Fox" filmmaker earns a hundred million dollars in profits), where Endeavor earns with life, destiny, psychology. In Broadway, Andrews is given the name "Queen of Music". Her first film was "Mary Poppins", shot in 1964. With this film directed by Robert Stevenson, Andrews has opened up new horizons for the performing arts, fully proving that she has great acting culture, skillful and flexible techniques, and an indisputable ability to create an atmosphere. This film is very popular with Andrews. Andrews wins an Oscar for best-supporting actress then came to the 1964 film Emily's Americanization, the 1966-1967 film ‘The Tearful Curtain’ by Alfred Hitchcock and the "Millie" by George Roy Hill. After starring in films, Andrews starred in The Star, after a while he starred in "Favorite Lily", "She", "Pussy Girl Mark".


 She lost her voice in 1997 but continued her career as an actress. In 1999 the Queen of Great Britain awarded her the title of Lady. Playing the role of a benevolent nanny, Andrews finds himself within a certain image that she has had to struggle with throughout her life. She could no longer play music in the theater, and in film production, she was considered an actress in the early '60s. However, since Emily's Americanization, her role has steadily expanded. Andrews has tried himself as a theater director, starring in the children's comedy "Princess Diaries" and voicing the role of Queen Lillian in the cartoon "Shrek 2".

Julie Elizabeth Andrews quotes

  I used to have a certain dislike of the audience, not as individual people, but as a giant body who was judging me. Of course, it wasn't them judging me. It was me judging me. Once I got past that fear, it freed me up, not just when I was performing but in other parts of my life.

 A lot of my life happened in great, wonderful bursts of good fortune, and then I would race to be worthy of it.

  Marriage is hard work; the illusion that you get married and live happily ever after is absolute rubbish.

  Have you noticed how nobody ever looks up? Nobody looks at chimneys, or trees against the sky, or the tops of buildings. Everybody just looks down at the pavement or their shoes. The whole world could pass them by and most people wouldn't notice.

   I was fortunate enough to work at the peak of the great golden age of musicals. And then for a while, I think they were being advanced in different ways. Andrew Lloyd-Webber brought the rock beat to musicals; people tried different things. The joy of musicals is that there is no perfect recipe; it is what you throw into it.
