Peter Sallis, voice of Wallace dies at 96

Best known in Britain for his role of Normal Clegg which he played for 3 decades in England's longest running sitcom Last of the Summer Wine internationally he is best remember as the Voice of Wallace from the Wallace and Gromit claymations. Fantastic actor, have enjoyed his work for practically my whole life.

I'm sorry to hear this. The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is one of my favorite animated movies.

Awww. That's too bad. I LOVED the Wallace character and his voice. He was such a fun character actor. He was 96. What a great life he seemed to have lived.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

That's sad. Many happy hours at our house have been spent rewatching W&G.

I remember watching Sallis in the very first season of "The Last of the Summer Wine" back in the early 1970s. I was a teenager then.

I'm now in my late 50's.

Those early episodes were about the gently comedic experiences of retired men so Sallis was quite a bit younger than I am now.





He had a long, long life and made many people chuckle.

Sad to see him go but he leaves many happy memories.

Whilst I was never a fan of "last of the summer wine", Wallace and Gromit was just coming in when I was a kid, and a Grand Day Out, is still my favorite of the short movies.

Rest easy Peter!
