Peter Sallis, the voice of Wallace in the ‘Wallace and Gromit’ film series, has died at the age of 96, according to the BBC.
Sallis also played Norman “Cleggy” Clegg in the British sitcom “Last of the Summer Wine” from 1973 to 2010. He was the only actor to appear in all 295 episodes, according to the BBC.
Sallis gained fame through Nick Park’s “Wallace and Gromit,” an animated series about the adventures of a cheese-loving Yorkshireman who loved inventing and his dog, Gromit. The stop-motion animation combined with the humor helped Park’s films gain popularity around the world.
