Eyewitness News sat down with Dr. Peter Ostrum, also known as "Charlie Bucket" from the original "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" movie.
You might know him as Charlie, the winner of the final golden ticket.
But to Lowville residents, he's just "Pete" Ostrum, a local dairy veterinarian.
"After the film, I didn't think that being an actor was my role in life, so to speak. So I was fascinated with going to vet school," said Ostrum.
Ostrum then followed his dream, and found himself in Lowville at Countryside Veterinarian Clinic, where he is one of four owners.
But it was last November when the opportunity came up to film the documentary series, "Veterinarians on Call."
"They highlighted four different veterinarians around the country...They just wanted to highlight what a dairy veterinarian does in a routine day, and it's something that most people don't think of," said Ostrum.
Along with Dr. Ostrum, Jen Nightingale joined in on the series, showing an online audience a day in the life a large animal vet.
"What is fun about the series is that it's really completely unscripted," said Nightingale.
Not only has Nightingale done filming with Dr. Ostrum, but as a young vet, she says she couldn't ask for a better mentor.
"It's great learning from someone that cares so much about what they do, and really understands medicine," she said.
So you might ask, after all those years, what prompted Peter Ostrum to get back in front of the camera?
"To show people what we do, but then also possibly, there are some youngsters out there....who have never really thought of veterinarian medicine as a career. But after seeing the "Veterinarians on Call" series, they might say hey, that's pretty neat, I'd like to pursue that," he said.
