Julie Dawn Cole

    “I won’t talk to you ever again! You’re a rotten, mean father! You never give me anything I want! And I won’t go to school till I have it!”
    Well that kind of talk will get you down the bad egg chute!

    We’ve only landed a star of smash 1971 chocolate packed legendary film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory and all round good egg, it’s Julie-Dawn Cole aka Veruca Salt!

    Julie Dawn Cole is an English television, film and stage actress who has been active for some 40 years. She began as a child performer in what remains her best-remembered film, 1971’s Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory playing the spoiled Veruca Salt. She had the longest acting career of the children in the 1971 film, and is married with two children. Julie says she is nothing like her character Veruca Salt, but has admitted that when her children have acted out of line, she has occasionally used the line “Is that so, Veruca?” making reference to her most famous character. She has occasionally said that she is not fond of chocolate. After retiring from acting, she became a therapist.
