    Maria Von Trapp's Grandson on "The Sound Of Music"

    Ever since NBC announced that tonight’s live television version of The Sound of Music was in the works, many devoted fans of the 1965 film version have been climbing every mountain to proclaim that the beloved musical should be left alone. That Carrie Underwood will play Maria, the role made famous by Julie Andrews — even though the TV broadcast will be of the stage version, which is slightly different from the movie version — was just icing on the strudel.

    But one particular Sound of Music fan has high hopes for the broadcast — and he knows well the importance of getting it right. Sam von Trapp, 41, is a von Trapp grandson, a direct descendant of the real Georg and Maria von Trapp. (His father, Johannes von Trapp, was born after the events of SoM, after the pair were married.) “I think it’s great. I think the concern comes from people who feel like they’re trying to replace Julie Andrews or replace Christopher Plummer, but I feel that it’s something different,” he says. “They’re really just making the pie bigger, giving people another way in which to see the story.”
