Peter Sallis

1 February 1921 to 2 June 2017

A British actor who was equally well known for his on-screen talents and his voice performances, Sallis brought life and warmth to the titular eccentric inventor across the multiple adventures of Wallace and Gromit (1989-2008). He was the only actor to star in all 295 episodes of the long-running Last of the Summer Wine (1973-2010).
