The world continues to mourn the loss of ‘Willy Wonka’ Icon, Gene Wilder who passed away yesterday at age 83 of complications from Alzheimer’s disease.
The Oscar nominated actor’s rise to fame began in 1961 after his role in Off Broadway’s “Roots”. A few years later, his career catapulted when he portrayed the mad scientist in “Young Frankenstein” and the comedy, “Blazing Saddles”.
