Violet, Your turning Violet, Violet
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.
