Peter Sallis: ‘Wallace and Gromit’ actor dies aged 96
    2017-06-07  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

The actor was best known for appearing in “Last of the Summer Wine” and was also famous as the voice of Wallace in “Wallace and Gromit.”

His agent confirmed he died peacefully with his family by his side.

Sallis played Norman “Cleggy” Clegg in “Last of the Summer Wine” from its first episode in 1973 until the series concluded in 2010.

He was the only actor to appear in all 295 episodes of the sitcom.

By the time he first appeared in the role he had already carved out a distinguished career in theater and on television.

His role as the flat-capped philosopher made him the longest-serving cast member of the much-loved series.

And he reached an even wider audience as the voice of Wallace, the cheese-loving character in the animated “Wallace and Gromit” films.

“Wallace and Gromit” creator Nick Park led tributes to Sallis, describing him as a “unique character.”

“I’m so sad, but feel so grateful and privileged* to have known and worked with Peter over so many years. He was always my first and only choice for ‘Wallace’,” Park said in a statement.

“Working with him was always a delight and I will miss his wry*, unpredictable humor and silliness — that started the moment he greeted you at the door, and didn’t stop when the mic was switched off.”

Park added: “Peter had naturally funny bones and was a great storyteller and raconteur* off stage too and would keep us amused for hours.”
