Well, This is not quite related to Roald Dahl. But you may remember a scene in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" where Mike Teavee is playing a video game. That's right, He was playing "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell" on his Sony Playstation 2. Tom Clancy was one of the video game Programmers for this Canadian video game company called "UBI Soft Entertainment". Tom Clancy died on October 1st, 2013. Tom Clancy was at age 66. Thank you, Tom. UBI Soft will never be the same without you. Well, Who will be next, David Crane?
As you may heard, On February of 2012, David Kelly, The man who played Grandpa Joe Bucket on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has died. He was 82. I remember he was a wonderful actor. David was born in Dublin, Ireland, UK. He was also known for as Michael O'Sullivan in Walking Ned. And Disney will never be the same without you Grandpa Joe. And R.I.P. Grandpa Joe Bucket (AKA David Kelly 1929-2012). BTW, I wonder what Johnny Depp (Willy Wonka) and Freddie Highmore (Charlie Bucket) are doing these days?
