Recommended Posts





We're sad to report that Denise Nickerson, the former child star best known for her role as Violet Beauregarde in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, has passed away. Nickerson died on Wednesday night at the age of 62.


Nickerson's death was announced by her family in the late hours Wednesday, with a Facebook post that simply read, "She's gone." Her death came as a result of complications from a seizure and pneumonia. She was taken off life support Tuesday night.
