    Sad news - is she the first of the Chocolate Factory kids to pass away? There doesn't seem to be a Wikipedia page for the actor who played Augustus Gloop so I wouldn't know. Did she really have purple (sorry, violet) make up on her face when she chewed that gum all the time?

    It was a great film as it almost felt half-American, half-British. It was sad when Gene Wilder passed away three years ago as he was the actor most strongly associated with it.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    I heard that Michael Bollner, who played Augustus Gloop didn't act much afterwards & is now an accountant.

    The film was filmed in Germany, but with a mostly British & American cast, with a few Germans.

    Now that would make a great wallpaper pattern.

    By the way, I used to find it humorous that her name sounded rather like "Denise Knickers On!"

    On a tangent, I read in the news yesterday about Verruca Salt's prop Wonka Bar and Golden Ticket (the Wonka Bar was just some cardboard in real life) had recently fetched quite a bit of money in an auction for charity. Julie Dawn Cole gave it to a friend who kept it for many years before deciding to part with it.

    Maybe her nickname was "No"...
