    "Chris was an extraordinary man who deeply loved and respected his profession with great old fashion manners, self-deprecating humour and the music of words," Pitt said in a statement to CBC News. "He was a national treasure who deeply relished his Canadian roots.

    On screen, Plummer appeared in 1965 as Captain von Trapp, alongside British stage and screen star Julie Andrews, in what was, for several years, the highest grossing film of all time, The Sound of Music, a role he was famously ambivalent about.

            One of the very few actors to win the Triple Crown of acting -- an Academy Award, Emmy Award, and Tony Award. He also won a Golden Globe
