✟ RIP Peter Sallis
Born 1921 - Death 2017
❝ Peter Sallis, OBE (1 February 1921 – 2 June 2017) was an English actor, known for his work on British television. He gained worldwide fame as the voice of Wallace in the Academy Award-honored Wallace and Gromit films.
Although he was born and brought up in London, his two best remembered roles required him to adopt the accent and mannerisms of a Northerner. In addition to voicing Wallace, he played Norman "Cleggy" Clegg in Last of the Summer Wine from its 1973 inception until its final episode in 2010, making him the only actor to appear in all 295 episodes.
Sallis retired from acting, and had not appeared nor voiced on film or television from 2010 until his death in 2017. ❝
