Christopher Plummer, whose diverse film, television and theater acting career spanned seven decades, died Friday.

He was 91.

Plummer died at his home in Connecticut with his wife of 50 years, Elaine Taylor, by his side, said Lou Pitt, his longtime friend and manager of 46 years.

“Chris was an extraordinary man who deeply loved and respected his profession with great old fashion manners, self deprecating humor and the music of words. He was a National Treasure who deeply relished his Canadian roots,” Pitt said. “Through his art and humanity, he touched all of our hearts and his legendary life will endure for all generations to come.”

Actor Christopher Plummer dies at 91

Plummer, it seemed, could handle any role from Oedipus to Othello. Audiences of varying ages might recognize him as the antagonist old man in “Up” to, more recently, the wealthy patriarch in the comedic mystery movie “Knives Out.”

But it was his role as Captain Georg von Trapp opposite Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music” that catapulted him to fame.

While the film — about a strict single father of seven who falls in love with a nun-in-training before the entire musically talented family has to flee Austria to avoid his serving in the Nazi Navy — is hailed as a classic, he long regarded the role as “humorless and one-dimensional.”

“We tried so hard to put humor into it,” Plummer told The Associated Press in 2007. “It was almost impossible. It was just agony to try to make that guy not a cardboard figure.”

Plummer had a remarkable film renaissance late in life, which began with his acclaimed performance as Mike Wallace in Michael Mann’s 1999 film “The Insider” and continued in films such 2001’s “A Beautiful Mind” and 2009′s “The Last Station,” in which he played a deteriorating Leo Tolstoy and was nominated for an Oscar, and 2011’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

He won a best supporting actor Oscar in 2012, making him the oldest Academy Award acting winner in history at the age of 82, for his role in “Beginners” as Hal Fields, a museum director who becomes openly gay after his wife of 44 years dies.
