Mary Wickes - the first
The first book of British women Pamela Travers of unusual nurse came in 1934. Tale writer has brought the long-awaited success and has become so popular that the author produced the continuation until 1989! And about Mary Poppins came only four films. Interestingly, the story interested in the United States, rather than at home Miss Poppins in England.
The first was the American adaptation of the drama of 1949, where she played Mary Wickes. As well as a fantastic character and her creator Pamela Travers, the actress has never been married. In recent years, the life of Mary Wickes was seriously ill. She was suffering from breast cancer, renal failure, gastrointestinal bleeding, hypotension and anemia.
The actress died in 1995, aged 85, during the operation. The following year and did not become a writer Pamela Travers.
Julie Andrews - the most titled
In fact, the film adaptation of the first fairy tale - in the early 40-ies - the thought of Walt Disney. His daughters adored stories of Merry Poppins and multiplier planned to remove the full-length musical film, but Miss Travers refused to give their books at the mercy of Hollywood screenwriters. Also I did not like the idea of using it in film animation, which, actually, was the essence of the Disney studio.
Only 20 years later correspondences British writer has agreed only to discuss adaptation. In 1961, she came for two weeks in Los Angeles, Walt Disney tried every trick to lure wayward Briton his idea. He presented sketches for the film, trying to impress Travers great music Sherman brothers, arranged a trip to Disneyland ... Travers did not go to any persuasions, and the studio is almost resigned to failure. And only when Disney began to be frank with the writer about his childhood, he was able to find her approach. Pamela Travers agreed with the full participation in the selection of actors and making the film, and the result of joint work became legendary kinomyuzikl 1964 with Julie Andrews.
The British actress, conquered Broadway with his voice, walked out on samples superstar Bette Davis because Travers did not want to see their heroine American. Julie Andrews, which first appeared on the big screen, has received for his work "Oscar", "Golden Globe" and a BAFTA Award.

Now Julie Andrews 82 years old, she is a widow. In 2010, it did not become the director Blake Edwards, married to an actress who has lived for 40 years.
Natalia Andreichenko - the native
While the Soviet children have dreamed of such a nanny, Mary Poppins, their dad went crazy for the actress who played her. The role was a breakthrough for Andreichenko, and she went to the actress through the influence of her husband - Maxim Dunaevsky composer who wrote the music for the Soviet "Marry Poppins". In 1982, two years before the release of the film, the couple had a son Dmitry - it is now a banker in Switzerland. In 2016, the actress accused him of stealing millions of dollars from her account. Then the lawyer Dmitry proved that he is disposed by means of a mother with her consent, but Andreichenko still intended to court to demand payment of the debt from her son.
Two years later, the actress, without going into the details of the case, said she has forgiven her son and has established a relationship with him. Maybe the decision of Andreichenko affected religious practices, which it has long been passionate about? It is known that the actress has a spiritual center in Mexico, and in September 2018 she opened a school "World Kindness Mary Poppins" in Moscow. The actress told me that experienced clinical death, hit by a car at 24 years. Recovering, Andreichenko turned to yoga and Buddhism began to travel to Tibet and meditate.
Now the 62-year-old Natalia Andreichenko, in his own words, living in complete harmony of body, mind and consciousness.
