On August 29th. 2016 the world lost one of the greatest comedic talents it has ever seen in Gene Wilder. He passed away at age 83 from complications of Alzheirmer’s disease, but his inspirational talent is sure to live on for many decades and centuries still to come.
Gene Wilder was a comedic actor known by many for his starring role as Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. However, it’s almost criminal to boil down his career to just that role because he had many outstanding performances throughout the 23 films and numerous television appearances he made from 1967 to 2003.
Gene was a phenomenal comedic talent that inspired many comedians and actors who are working today, and he will be sorely missed.
R.I.P Gene Wilder.
