Maria von Trapp was the last surviving member of the seven original Trapp Family Singers made famous in “The Sound of Music.” She was portrayed as Louisa in the 1959 Broadway musical and a 1965 film, which won the Oscar for best picture. She was the third child and second-oldest daughter of Austrian Naval Capt. Georg von Trapp and his first wife, Agathe Whitehead von Trapp. Their seven children were the basis for the singing family in the musical and film. “The Sound of Music” was based loosely on a 1949 book by von Trapp’s second wife, also Maria von Trapp, who died in 1987. It tells the story of an Austrian woman who married a widower with seven children and teaches them music.

“It’s important to keep thinking about why people do that, and why they think it’s OK to,” says the busy actor, whose other planned awards-season release, “The Current War,” has been shelved indefinitely due to the fallout from the many allegations against its distributor, Harvey Weinstein. “The fact that that scene is in the movie — it’s an honest portrayal of a man who is very screwed-up in the head. “The way we’re dealing with the problem right now is great, holding people accountable and stuff,” Shannon adds. “But … we have to get to the root of it. And as an artist, I feel like it’s my responsibility to explore that and keep it in people’s thoughts.”.
