We all watched Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory when we were kids and dreamed about opening up our chocolate bars to find a golden ticket. We all wished that some eccentric candy man would give us the keys to a factory that made the most wonderful things.
Unfortunately it never happened for us, but it's probably for the best, as most of us would have fallen into the traps long before we made it to the end. The kids who did get to go to the Wonka factory were such a big part of our childhoods it's normal to be curious about what happened to them all.
The kids were so young when the movie came out in 1971, so where are they all now? Find out below!
Michael Bollner - Augustus Gloop
Michael Bollner played Augustus Gloop, the German boy who was the first to fall victim to one of the perils of Willy Wonka's factory. I mean, can you blame him? It was a river of CHOCOLATE! I would have done the same buddy.
After he finished this role, his father made him stop acting and got him to finish school. Bollne had wanted to continue acting at first, but has since gone into accounting and has his own firm in Munich, Germany.
Denise Nickerson - Violet Beauregarde
She actually was a part of the show Dark Shadows before taking on the role of Violet, and continued acting after. She was in the show The Electric Company and had a few other small roles before quitting acting in 1978.
Did you know she actually auditioned for the role of Princess Leia? Since retiring from acting she has also become an accountant, just like Augustus Gloop! She is a single mother and lives in Colorado.
But did all the kids just grow up to be accountants?
