Leslie Phillips, best known for starring in the Carry On films, has died at the age of 98.
The veteran actor, who died Monday, spent eight decades in the spotlight and became known for his suggestive catchphrases, including “Ding Dong,” “Wow, hello” and “” I Say!”.
Phillips passed away “peacefully in his sleep” on Monday, his agent Jonathan Lloyd confirmed to the PA news agency.
He then moved on to more dramatic roles, including the Bafta-nominated role opposite Peter O’Toole in the 2006 film Venus and also voiced the Sorting Hat in the Harry Potter films.
Phillips was awarded an OBE in the 1998 Birthday Honors and was promoted to a CBE in the 2008 New Year Honors.
