Are any of the original Oompa-Loompas alive?

I was one of the original Oompa Loompas in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, filmed in Munich in 1970. The Oompa Loompas went on to do various other TV, film and stage shows, but there are now only three of us alive. Some of the Oompa Loompas were very old – one was in his 70s back then.

Are the Oompa-Loompas real actors?

A: There are 165 Oompa-Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Interestingly though, they are all played by just one actor; one man duplicated many times by the magic of cinema and CGI.
