About Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins, famously played by Julie Andrews, is the protagonist in one of the most popular films in 1964 Mary Poppins. This family-friendly movie tells the story about a magical nanny who appears in London to help two neglected children become closer to their dad. To other people, Mary Poppins is described as “practically perfect in every way.”
Also, she’s very sharp and witty, yet kind and caring towards to kids. There’s a good reason why Mary Poppins is called a magical nanny, and that’s because she possesses a lot of magical abilities such as talking to animals, flying, and transporting herself to places. However, she always denies that she has any powers to keep a secret from other people.
Bert was played by Dick Van Dyke for the 1964 version of Mary Poppins. He also played the role of Mr. Dawes Jr. for the recent 2018 Mary Poppins film.
Dick Van Dyke is also known for his role as Caractacus Potts in Chitty Chitting Bang Bang.
