‘It’s very hard to be frustrated and upset when Mr. Disney comes along and says, “Would you like to do Mary Poppins?”‘ she recalled. ‘I wasn’t angry, believe me.’

Baldwin gushed with praise for the Tinseltown icon for that role and the others that followed on her illustrious resume.

‘Julie Andrews is a true icon and captured the hearts and imaginations of children and adults alike the moment she first appeared on screen in Mary Poppins,’ he said on behalf of the festival. ‘Since then she has never ceased to amaze and stands as a true role model and inspiration.
