Glynis Johns, renowned for her role in “Mary Poppins,” has passed away at 100.

Her career spanned over 80 years, including a Tony Award-winning performance in “A Little Night Music.”

Despite losing the film role to Elizabeth Taylor, she inspired Sondheim’s “Send in the Clowns.” (Trending: Pro Sport Announces Shock Decision On Transgender Athletes)

Johns appeared in over 60 films, earning an Academy Award nomination for “The Sundowners.”

She also had a notable TV career and hailed from a theatrical family.

“I’ve retired many times,” Johns said previously.

“My personal life has come before my work. The theater is just part of my life. It probably uses my highest sense of intelligence, so, therefore, I have to come back to it, to realize that I’ve got the talent.”

“I’m not as good doing anything else.”

Johns was married four times and had a son, Gareth Forwood, with her first husband, Anthony Forwood.

“Today’s a sad day for Hollywood,” her manager Mitch Clem said.

“She is the last of the last of old Hollywood.”

Johns’ final film roles included “The Ref,” “While You Were Sleeping,” and “Superstar.”
