Peter Sallis


Born - 1 February 1921, Twickenham, Middlesex, England
Died - 5 June 2017

Diffident, dark-haired, thin-mouthed, puckish English actor, often seen in sneaky roles in the early years of his career, but latterly much associated with comedy, as both the voice of Wallace in the Wallace & Gromit animations and as Cleggy in the long-running Last of the Summer Wine series on TV. Started life as a bank clerk, but enrolled at RADA after leaving war service with the RAF. Films, fewer than one imagines, included Child's Play (1954), Stranger from Venus (1954), Anastasia (1956), The Scapegoat (1958), Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960), Curse of the Werewolf (1961), Mouse on the Moon (1963), Clash by Night (1964), Rapture (1965), Charlie Bubbles (1967), The Reckoning (1969), Wuthering Heights (1970), Full Circle (1976), Too Many Chefs (1978) and Colour Me Kubrick (2005), his last.
