Denise Nickerson, who played Violet Beauregard in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1971), is living her last moments, as her family told the American media TMZ. His health had deteriorated since last year. A kitty was launched by his son and daughter-in-law to honor his last wishes.

It was a little less than 50 years ago, but the public has not forgotten his pretty face. Denise Nickerson played Violet Beauregard, chewing-gum chewing gum that swelled like a blueberry, in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – the 1971 version of Roald Dahl’s novel . She had stopped her career to become a nurse in 1978. Sad news for fans of the former actress: it lives its last moments, as revealed by TMZ . Last year, she had a stroke.

On Monday, July 9, she was hospitalized urgently by her family after an overdose of drugs, the doctors then diagnosed her with pneumonia. Tuesday, her condition worsened, she was placed in intensive care. His relatives told the American media that they had made the decision to stop treatment . His death is now only a matter of time.

His son Josh and his daughter-in-law are at the bedside of Denise Nickerson. They launched a kitty on the GoFundMe website to get the money to honor his last wishes: that it be cremated and that his ashes be transformed into works of art in glass. They hope to get close to $ 10,000 – 8,900 euros.

In 2016, another star of Charlie and the chocolate factory was leaving us: Gene Wilder, who played Willy Wonka, died at the age of 83 . He had Alzheimer’s disease.
