Here is a breakdown of the character 'Gretl von Trapp' from 'The Sound of Music'. Remember, this is just the character, You can read about the actress, Kym Karath, here!
Name - Gretl Von Trapp
Real Person - Martina Von Trapp
Actor - Kym Karath
Age - 5
Appearance - Gretl has dark golden hair, she is short and her build is slight.
Personal Traits - Gretl is shy which we find out when all the children meet Maria as her father has to introduce her. She's young, naive and innocent and warms to Maria straight away.
A couple of my favourite Gretl quotes are:
Gretl - 'Why am I always last?'
Uncle Max - 'Because you are the most important'
and when she is telling Maria about how she cut her finger the explanation she gives is that
'It got caught… in Friedrich's teeth!'
