    Portrayed Norman Clegg in 'Last of the Summer Wine' (1973-2010), Mr. Gudgin in 'The Ghosts of Motley Hall' (1976-78) and Arthur Simister in 'Leave It To Charlie' (1978-80)

    Provided the voice of Wallace in the animated Wallace and Gromit films
    Named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for services to drama (2007)
    'Last of the Summer Wine' co-star Tom Owen said, 'He could be a rude old devil, although he'd probably claim that was just his acerbic wit.'
    When first approached about the Wallace and Gromit shorts, he told animator Nick Park to use someone else.
    He admitted to not sharing Wallace's fondness for cheese: 'I haven't touched the stuff for decades.'
    He served as a radio operator with the RAF during WWII.
    He came alarmingly close to drowning filming a scene for 'Last of the Summer Wine' when the canoe he was in capsized.
    He continued acting despite suffering macular degeneration, an eye disease causing a loss of central vision.
