Gene Wilder (1933)

Wilder was just 8 years old when his ailing mother's doctor urged him to try making her laugh. The boy took those words to heart and developed a passion for performing that eventually led him to Hollywood. He is best known for his roles in comedy classics like Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and Young Frankenstein. He cowrote the latter film with producer and director Mel Brooks, and their screenplay was nominated for an Academy Award. Which film sequel's script beat them out? More...

I thought something was missing...Gene Wilder passed away and that date doesn't appear in the article

June 11, 1933 – August 29, 2016

He was an amazing actor and one of my personal favorites... thankfully his movies will live on.

Great actor and amazing performance in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, one of my favorites.

And, yes, he passed away on August 29th, 2016, in Stamford, Connecticut.

NHF:

I don't get why they are out of date...I went on-line and was able to get the right info and I live in China...LOL

You'd think they'd at least take the time to be sure what is posted is at least current. Then again...it's only a web-site in a sea of them.

Ditto...he will always be Willy Wonka for me too. :)

And the fox in The Little Prince live action movie. And singing in Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

😞 I actually thought I’d remembered it incorrectly that he’d died not too long ago; I was sad to remember that was true.

This is my only now.
