Very sad to read of the passing of Denise Nickerson, the actress who played Violet Beauregarde in 1971’s classic, and one of my favorite all time movies “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”
Denise Nickerson – 1957 – 2019
It really stings when somebody of my youth passes away, and makes me realize I am getting older and older as the years go by. I have fond memories of watching Willy Wonka at my cousins each Thanksgiving when I was growing up, and would like to thank Denise, Gene Wilder, and the everybody else involved in the movie for making us smile and laugh. A piece of my childhood has been removed, but will never be forgotten.
