    Heather Menzies-Urich Dead - 'Sound of Music' Actress Dies at 68

    Heather Menzies-Urich, best known for playing the role of Louisa von Trapp in the beloved movie musical The Sound of Music, has died at the age of 68.


    The actress died on Sunday night (December 24) after a battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her kids and other family members.


    “She was an actress, a ballerina and loved living her life to the fullest,” Heather‘s son Ryan told Variety. “She was not in any pain but, nearly four weeks after her diagnosis of terminal brain cancer, she had enough and took her last breath on this earth at 7:22 pm.”
    We send our thoughts and condolences to Heather‘s loved ones during this difficult time.

    I mainly remember her on Logan's Run - the TV version with Gregory Harrison. I didn't realize she was in Sound of Music until much later. Something that I thought was kind of interesting was that Angela Cartwright, "Penny" from "Lost in Space" starred with Menzies in "Sound". And then made an appearance on Logan's Run. Here they are together:



    And in Sound of Music (Cartwright is 3rd from left and Menzies is 5th from left):

    Wasn't she married to Robert Urich? Oh, yeah, just saw his name in the title. He died of cancer, too, aged 55.

    RIP. Too young and too sudden.

    Sound of Music is still probably my favorite musical. I always liked her because she was the pain in the ass...still forget whether she's Louisa or Brigitta, even when reading about her. I didn't even realize she was on Logan's Run. Hadn't thought about that show in years.
