Dr. Peter Ostrum is a veterinarian in Lowville, New York. He has a wife named Loretta, a son named Leif, a daughter named Helenka and mustache named Beautiful.
Of course you might also recognize Peter as Charlie Bucket from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. Peter ditched acting with just one credit to his name. Talk about going out on top. I like to think he has a mustache to honor Grandpa Joe.
Jack Albertson was an actor dating back to vaudeville, but since I’m 28 years old, I know him as Grandpa Joe in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Jack was 64 years old when that film was made. Grandpa Joe said he had been in that bed for 20 YEARS before Charlie brought the golden ticket home. That means that I only have 16 years left before I will spend the rest of my life in a bed with 3 other people.
