We were saddened to hear about the death of Gene Wilder this week. Such a special man and a talented actor, with a real infectious enthusiasm for his parts and a devilish twinkle in his eye!
He was a real advocate for the power of humour and laughter, and especially enjoyed the acting in films which allowed him to escape to a magic, other-worldly place. He said: "I love acting, especially if it's a fantasy of some kind, where it's nnot just realistic, it's not naturalism."
From his iconic part in Blazing Saddles to his unforgettable performance as Willy Wonka in the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, below are some his most memorable and brilliant moments on film. Share it with your residents, and take some time to share the memories of a much loved character!
