OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood on Filling Julie Andrews’ Shoes

Carrie Underwood cannot fill
Julie Andrews’ shoes. She will do her best, I’m sure, when she plays Maria Von Trapp in the live TV broadcast of The Sound
of Music
later this year. But Underwood thinks she will never be as good as Julie Andrews, who played the same role in
the 1965 movie. “At some point, I would love to meet her just because she is someone I grew up watching and listening to,”
Underwood told CMT Radio. “But no one can touch her. I am not her, and I will never be her.” Underwood obviously thinks Andrews
holds an iconic place in so many people’s hearts. Her plan is to read the script, watch other musicals and “kind of get into
the whole musical space versus the movie space.” Sounds like that will work wonders. Andrews told the Wall Street Journal
she endorses the new production of the musical and that she would love to get to know Underwood.
