Comic actor Andrew Sachs, known primarily for his role as the well-intentioned but somewhat dim character of Manuel in the 1970s comedy "Fawlty Towers," has died.Actor John Cleese led tributes Friday to the German-born British actor, who made the role of the bumbling Spanish waiter with the massive moustache all his own.In the program, Sachs plays the lovable waiter Manuel who struggles with his English and whose trademark "Que?" led to some of the program's most humorous exchanges.In one episode, "Basil The Rat," Manuel keeps a pet rat, which he mistakes for a Siberian hamster.Later in the same program, as Basil tries to reassure him with a slap on the back, Sachs offers the line that was often associated with Manuel.In 2008, Sachs found himself at the center of a controversy when comedian Russell Brand and TV presenter Jonathan Ross left lewd messages on his answering machine and joked on air about Sachs' granddaughter.
