Wallace and Gromit may end due to Peter Sallis's health

16 May 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nick Park has revealed that Wallace and Gromit may not return for another adventure.

The Oscar-winning animator has said that he is not sure if the series would continue without Wallace voice actor Peter Sallis.

Park said that the 93-year-old actor is "not too well", and suffers from the eye condition macular degeneration. He has not voiced Wallace in four years.

Sallis has Ben Whitehead as an understudy for Wallace, but Park has yet to decide if he would make another project without Sallis.

Speaking at the 25th anniversary of Leith School of Art, Park said: "He's not too well. It's a big question for us, whether to keep going. We have got an understudy who has stepped in sometimes, Ben Whitehead, a young actor in London.

"He actually started off doing the stuff Peter didn't want to do, like video games, or if we needed a voice for an exhibition. »

How we made Wallace and Gromit

3 March 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Gromit was a cat, Wallace had a moustache, and their first adventure was meant to be like Star Wars – but with cheese. Nick Park and Peter Lord on creating a British classic

Nick Park, creator

As soon as I started filming A Grand Day Out, the first Wallace and Gromit animation, I realised I was making a film about my dad. He loved tinkering about in the shed. He didn't look like Wallace, but somehow I could see him in his eyes – although my dad's eyes didn't meet in the middle, of course.

It was 1982 and, back then, Wallace had no eyebrows, hardly any cheeks and a moustache. And Gromit was embarrassing: he had a nose like a banana, or a cross between a banana and a pear. When Peter Sallis, who voices Wallace, said "No cheeeese, Gromit" for the first time, I realised how wide and toothy I was »
