British actor Peter Sallis, who played irrepressible, cheese-loving inventor Wallace in the "Wallace and Gromit" cartoons, has died, his agent said Monday.Sallis was proud to have appeared in every episode during the show's 37-year run, the only actor in the series to have done so.Millions around the world came to know his voice from animator Nick Park's "Wallace and Gromit," which charted the adventures of a cheese-loving Yorkshireman with a passion for inventing wild contraptions and his taciturn, level-headed canine, Gromit.With their old-fashioned stop-motion animation and lightly anarchic British humor, Park's short films, feature and BBC series gained admirers around the world.The 2005 feature "Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" was awarded the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year and the role also won Sallis an Annie Award for Best Voice Acting in an Animated Feature Production.
