The Sound of Music’s von Trapp child is making face masks using similar curtain pattern from film

One of the von Trapp children from The Sound of Music is making face masks using a similar curtain pattern from the movie.

Now, where can we get one?

Three of the cast members from the 1960s classic reunited on Tuesday’s This Morning to reminisce about the film as well as paying a tribute to their co-star Christopher Plummer.

Debbie Turner, who played Marta, Nicholas Hammond who played Frederic and Angela Cartwright who played Brigitta, all appeared on the programme via video link.

Before they even began talking, host Holly Willoughby couldn’t help but notice some familiar-looking curtains in Debbie’s background.

‘Debbie, let’s start with you first of all,’ she began. ‘I am slightly mesmerised by what’s going on behind you because I have spotted the cushions already.

‘Is that the same fabric as the dresses that were made from the curtains in the movie?’

‘It is,’ Debbie simply replied. ‘Well, it’s similar. I don’t know if it’s exactly the same but it’s similar.’

‘You use those as part of a business now?’ Phillip chipped in.

Holding up some face masks with the same pattern up to the screen, Debbie explained: ‘Masks.’

‘I want one of those,’ Holly added. While Phillip said: ‘Wow, look at that.’

Holly and Phillip went on to ask the stars if they pursued acting after The Sound of Music.

Debbie explained she ‘lived the life of a normal kid’ after rising to fame and Angela went on to become a photographer.

Paying a tribute to their onscreen father Christopher (Captain von Trapp), who died at home last week at the age of 91, Angela began: ‘I think he brought a real edge to the part, which was something that made it not as sickly sweet.

‘I loved working with Chris, he was a talented guy, very sorry to lose him at 91 though, what a great long run.’

Nicolas, who went on to have a career as an actor continued: ‘He showed me what it was to really be an actor. His concentration and his commitment.

‘It is true that he was more serious on the set, certainly more than Julie, who was delightful and fun and just full of light and joy for all of us.’

‘Christopher came there to work and do a job and also knew, for us children, we shouldn’t be quite as comfortable around him, as our father as we’re meant to be around Maria,’ he added. It was a very calculated move I think.

‘I had huge admiration for him.’

The Sound of Music was released in 1965 and its popularity broke previous box-office records in twenty-nine countries.

Over the years it has received a number of awards including Five Academy Awards and Two Golden Globes.

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
