Michael Böllner (born 14 September 1958) is a German former child actor who played Augustus Gloop in the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, when he was 12 years old. Interviewed on HBO, along with the other stars of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, he said he enjoyed acting in the film, even though he could not speak English beforehand and had to have his lines coached by a crew member. In the featurette "Pure Imagination, The Making of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", Böllner mentioned that he had done a couple more films in Germany after Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, but soon quit because his father said he should finish school. He is now a tax accountant in Munich.
