Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight… 1 Peter 2:1-25
Was she possibly responding to Kym Karath who played Gretl Von Trapp in the original film? Ms. Karath live-tweeted the show. Some highlights (lowlights?):
Mystified & disappointed so far by SOM special. So far only happy with Stephen Moyer.
Must admit some scenes are actually painful to watch .
Love Carrie Underwood but this role is just not right for her. She is lovely her voice is beautiful but acting is wrong.
Ms. Karath was later overwhelmed by the attention her tweets got. The tweets even landed her an interview on CNN. She tweeted the day after the remake aired,
To be clear I love Carrie Underwood. Just not as Maria. She was brave to take it on.And this doesn’t lessen my respect for her talent.
It’s more likely Carrie Underwood was tweeting at “haters” than Gretl herself. But who knows? Maybe she doesn’t handle any kind of criticism very well, though you’d think she’d have learned after dealing with Simon Cowell while she was on American Idol.
I love that there’s Sound of Music drama. What year is it? Also, who watched this and what did you think?
