Gene Wilder, perhaps most well-known among millennials for his role as Willy Wonka, died Sunday in Connecticut after battling Alzheimer's disease, the Associated Press reported. He was 83.
News of his death Monday instantly triggered an outpouring of sympathy from celebrities like Russell Crowe and Gilbert Gottfried. Wilder's longtime collaborator Mel Brooks tweeted that he was "one of the truly great talents of our time," adding that "he blessed every film we did with his magic" and "blessed me with his friendship."
