Wallace and Gromit may end due to Peter Sallis's health - Digital Spy (blog)

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. 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. He was doing some of the voices on The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and stood in for Peter sometimes. Some people have spotted it and have said he doesn't really sound like [Wallace], but he's getting good. Park added that he "would love to do more Wallace and Gromits in the future" and that he "could make more films with them till the cows come home". Peter Sallis has voiced Wallace since 1990, and originally took the job despite being offered just £25. Watch a classic clip from The Wrong Trousers :. Source: www.digitalspy.com
