The Actors From Charlie And The Chocolate Factory – Where Are They Now?

ADVERTISEMENT
It is 10 years since Roald Dahl's much beloved story was given the distinctively quirky and oddball Tim Burton treatment. The story of the poor, undernourished Charlie bucket being handed the chance of a lifetime courtesy of a Golden ticket from Willy Wonka is one of the world's greatest and most beloved modern fairytales. The cast was an ensemble of A-listers and young unknowns who were certainly thrust into the limelight but the great success of the movie. But what have they been doing since the movie? Where are they now?

1 - AnnaSophia Robb (Violet Beauregarde)

Since Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, AnnaSophia Robb has been extremely busy, and has accumulated an impressive collection of roles. She went on to score the plum role of a teenage Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries, the prequel to Sex and the City. She also played real-life surfer Bethany Hamilton in Soul Surfer, who lost an arm in a shark attack; Bethany herself requested that AnnaSophia play her in the movie. AnnaSophia also has several movies in pre-production due out in 2016. She also finds the time to study at New York University and do charity work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and others. Add to that, a number of awards and nominations, magazine features, and appearances at events, and you can see that she's a very busy young lady. Surprise fact: she'd liked to have played Augustus Gloop in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. That's rather hard to imagine!

2 - Helena Bonham Carter (Mrs Bucket)

Helena Bonham Carter already had plenty of starring roles under her belt when she played Mrs Bucket, including the tragic Lady Jane Grey and the remake of Planet of the Apes. A recurring role in the Harry Potter movies and appearances in Les Miserables, Sweeney Todd and Alice in Wonderland are just some of her many recent roles. She's also played Elizabeth Taylor, Anne Boleyn and the mother of Queen Elizabeth II.

Helena has worked several times with Johnny Depp and with her (former) partner Tim Burton. She's become known almost as much for her quirky style and unconventional living arrangements (she and Burton lived in separate, neighbouring houses), although they have two children together. Helena was known in her early career for a number of period roles, but has since gone on to expand her range, even appearing in a musical - Sweeney Todd.
