Julie Andrews and her Early Life
Julie Andrews is one of my favorite movie celebrities ever since I saw her in Sound of Music. I like her beautiful voice too which she lost due to operation.
At age 72 and married for 38 years with equally famous director of Pink Panther Series, Breakfast at Tiffany's and other movies, blake Edwards, she found the time to write her life story or ealier years.
She started her show business career at age nine with her pianist mother who was in the vaudeville act. Her name was Julia Elizabeth Wells, the last name , he got from her stepfather who she thought was her real father.
Her father was Ted Andrews who was also a singer-guitarist from Canada.
Both her biological parents became alcoholic.
The title of her autobiography is Home: A Memoir of My Early Years.”
