Julie Andrews has been stealing viewers’ hearts for decades.
Born Julia Elizabeth Wells, the actress came from humble beginnings before scoring her big break on Broadway in September 1954, just before her 19th birthday. Andrews’ performance of Polly Browne in The Boy Friend caught the attention of both audience members and industry experts, kickstarting her wildly successful career.
Eventually, Andrews found her way to the big screen, scoring the lead roles in The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins.
The England native, a three-time Grammy winner, has experienced highs and lows in her personal life. The Netflix star welcomed daughter Emma in November 1962 with her first husband, set designer Tony Walton. The pair split in 1967 after less than 10 years of marriage.
Andrews and her second husband, the late director Blake Edwards, wed in 1969 and adopted two daughters from Vietnam: Amelia in 1974 and Joanna in 1975.
