As a child, Peter Ostrum, DVM had theatrical aspirations. He performed in the local theater and landed his first role as Charlie Bucket in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The iconic film based on the book by Roald Dahl would not only be Dr. Ostrum’s first movie, but also his last. Although he enjoyed the experience and remembers it fondly, it was the time he spent working on a farm afterward that had the biggest impact on him. As he says in the video, when he saw the veterinarian that came to the farm he was working on, he thought, “This guy’s got the greatest job in the world.” See how Ostrum went from film sets to farms in this VPN video of the week.
