Personal Quote:

I was never one to seek out the spotlight. I am kind of a private person, so I don't miss that part of show business at all. Looking back on my career in television and making a movie like The Sound of Music (1965) from an adult point of view, it actually seems kind of unreal. I was involved in shows that people grew up with--that hold memories for them--and it's a cool feeling. See more »
