The Cast of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Reunited

It was a sweet reunion when the cast of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory reunited 44 years later on the Today show in America recently.

Six of the original cast members reminisced about the movie and what it was like filming such a classic story.  The actors that played Charlie Bucket, Veruca Salt, Mike Teavee, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde and Charlie’s mother were all there. Chief Oompa Loompa, Rusty Goffe was also there, who interestingly enough was the only one of the six guests who continued to work as an actor.

“We think of ourselves as part of a family,” said one of the five child actors who played the lucky golden ticket winners.

The cast spoke fondly of Wilder, but revealed one dirty little secret about the production. The chocolate river was nothing more than tinted running water. “It was disgusting,” said Goffe.
