Famous for her precise vocal style and typically English delivery, Julie Andrews made her professional debut in her parents’ variety act at the age of ten. Her big break came in 1954 when she played Polly Brown in the Broadway production of THE BOYFRIEND, before starring opposite Rex Harrison in MY FAIR LADY, although she was passed over, in favor of Audrey Hepburn, for the 1964 film version. Fortunately, she won an Oscar for her performance in MARY POPPIUNS in the same year, followed by her defining role in the international blockbuster THE SOUND OF MUSIC. Andrews also made numerous recordings, until a botched operation in 1997 left her unable to sing.
