Christopher Plummer died Friday at age 91. A star of the stage, film and television, Plummer’s career spanned six decades and included memorable turns in “The Sound of Music,” “Beginners” (for which he became the oldest actor to win an Oscar) and “Knives Out.” Check out some of his most memorable roles.

“The Lark” (1955)

Like many actors of his generation, Plummer honed his acting chops on the stage. Here he is backstage performing in “The Lark” by Jean Anouilh on Broadway.

“The Sound of Music” (1965)

In perhaps his most famous role, Plummer played the dashing Captain Von Trapp, a widower with seven children who falls in love with their governess, portrayed by Julie Andrews. Bill Lee provided Plummer’s singing voice in the film.

“Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” (1991)

Plummer donned prosthetics and an eye path to portrayed the Klingon General Chang, who (naturally) had a penchant for quoting Shakespeare.

“Up” (2009)

Plummer lent his distinguished voice to many animated projects as well. He voiced the villainous Charles Muntz in this popular Pixar film.

“Beginners” (2010)

Plummer won his first and only Oscar portraying Hal, a widower who comes out as a gay man late in his life. He also won a BAFTA, Golden Globe, and SAG Award for this role.

“All the Money in the World” (2017)

Plummer took over a role from Kevin Spacey, who left the project among sexual misconduct allegations. He earned his third Oscar nomination portraying billionaire J. Paul Getty.

“Knives Out” (2019)

Plummer once again played the head of a large family, this one more murderous than musical.
