Personal Quote:

Gromit (A Grand Day Out (1989)) is one of the great silent comedians. He's up there with Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin (Charles Chaplin). He may even be above them, because he's still working. See more »


Declined to appear on the television series Just a Minute (1994), despite having been one of the regular players on the original radio series since 1989. See more »
