Where Are They Now?: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (PHOTOS)

It's one of the most treasured movies of all time, loved by kids and adults alike. But have you ever wondered what the cast of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory look like now, almost 40 years later!? Wonder no more!

Take a look through the gallery to see what Violet Beauregarde looks like post blueberry, whether Charlie followed in Mr Wonka's footsteps and if Veruca Salt got all she'd ever wanted!

    No wonder I fell in love with her. I wanted to make her a "good egg"!

    If her teeth were that colour from lack of brushing, they'd ALL be the same colour. The front two are more grey than the others, suggesting that the roots have died - NOT that she just didn't care for them properly. When I was collected by a drunk driver, a number of my teeth were fractured, causing the roots to die and the teeth to go the same colour as hers - yet I was in my thirties before I ever needed so much as a filling. Don't be so quick to judge and make assumptions. We don't know how her teeth came to be that way.

    OH GOD OF ABRAHAM AND MOSES, WHY COULDN'T YOU HAVE TAKEN THIS DORK INSTEAD OF GILDA ?!?!?!?! Seriously, about the only thing I ever liked Gene Wilder in was Woody Allen's "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex (etc.)"

    He's obviously sitting at a convention, the poster behind him is a Wonka poster.

    No. His beloved wife who was a comedian/actress/Saturday Night Live original cast member, died several years ago of ovarian cancer thus starting the Gilda Radner Cancer foundation, but he is very much alive and recently became an author

    Such a dear soul. This man is one of those people that you just hate to see grow old, you want him to stay young forever...of course, in his films he is. I've enjoyed every film that he's made. I don't think there's an evil bone in his body. Ross

    I just LOVED him in that movie, I googled him a few months ago. He became a veterinarian and lives on the east coast, was that latest update. He did not want to pursue an acting career. Miss him, kudos to him for getting his education and not becoming a "grown up celeb in rehab".
