Cinema legend Christopher Plummer has died at the age of 91.
The Academy Award, Emmy and Tony, Golden Globe and BAFTA winning actor’s career stretches all the way back to the early 1950’s and includes TV, theatre and over 100 film appearances. He’ll be remembered for his work on the classic musical The Sound of Music, and more recently for giving great performances in Knives Out, Pixar’s Up and, memorably, being an extremely late addition to Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World, filming all of his scenes as J. Paul Getty in nine days after a disgraced Kevin Spacey was removed from the project. For his work he was nominated for an Academy Award.
His longtime friend and manager, Lou Pitt, said, “Chris was an extraordinary man who deeply loved and respected his profession with great old fashion manners, self deprecating humour and the music of words. He was a National Treasure who deeply relished his Canadian roots. Through his art and humanity, he touched all of our hearts and his legendary life will endure for all generations to come. He will forever be with us.”
