Carrie took on the role of Gretl for the live remake of the 1965 hit film on Dec. 5 and the original Gretl didn’t have very kind words for the country music star.
Carrie Underwood will definitely be disappointed when she learns that Kym Karath, who played Gretl Von Trapp in the original The Sound of Music felt like Carrie didn’t live up to the high expectations of fans and stars of the original film.
Carrie Underwood Dissed By Original ‘The Sound of Music’ Star Gretl Von Trapp
Kym did not hold back when taking to Twitter to express her thoughts throughout the film. First she said she was “disappointed,” then she called scenes “painful.” Finally, she slammed Carrie for her acting which she called “wrong.”
Kym started off with: “Mystified & disappointed so far by SOM special. So far only happy with Stephen Moyer.”
Then she followed that up with: “Must admit some scenes are actually painful to watch.”
But the cherry on top was this gem of a tweet: “Love Carrie Underwood but this role is just not right for her. She is lovely her voice is beautiful but acting is wrong.”
This is just so sad to read because Carrie spent countless hours practicing for this live performance!
