If you have ever seen the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory then you might know who Gene Wilder – for many of us, he is the ultimate Willy Wonka.  Recently Gene Wilder passed away at the age of 83. His death was caused by Alzheimer’s disease. Wilder had been battling this disease for three years and it finally got the best of him. His death was a tragic loss because so many people admires his work. Some people admired him so much that they named “America’s foremost comic actor”. He will truly be missed in the world of cinema.

For example, he was not only an actor but a director as well. He directed many films in his career and the people that worked with him when he was both acting and directing said he was a more than just amazing. They claim that he always made everything magical and lit up the room with his comedic ways. But he was more than just a director and actor he was a versatile man and also did jobs such a being a screenwriter and an author as well. In his career he was definitely very successful with the many jobs he did. He was in many movies that were very big hits and that he is well known for. But it wasn’t just the movies he was in, directed, or wrote that made people love him, people loved him for the real person he was inside and out. One of Gene’s co-stars said that he was always so kind and gentle and that she has never met anyone in her life like him. Gene was someone that you could never say anything bad about. This is what made him so successful because of the person he was. Such a loving person and this is why people are having such a difficult time letting him memory drift into a world of “pure imagination”.
