    [The cast of "Willy Wonka" -- Michael Bollner, Denise Nickerson, Paris Themmen, Julie Dawn Cole and Peter Ostrum -- all grown up. via CNN]

    Charlie Bucket aka Peter Ostrum is now a large animal veterinarian in Glenfield, NY

    Violet Beauregarde aka Denise Nickerson is now an accountant at an engineering plant.

    Augustus Goop aka Michael Bollner  is a tax attorney in Munich.

    Veruca Salt aka Julie Dawn Cole is a mom who is still pursuing her career in theater, tv and fitness.

    Mike Teevee aka Paris Themmen is a commercial casting agent, a film production member, a Disney Imagineering employee, a retail salesman, a real estate agent, and a finance guy. He even started his own website, where he sells autographs. Maybe TV does rot your brain.
