Actor Leslie Phillips has died at 98 years old

This year it has been quite hard for the entertainment world, since some important actors have left to leave their legacy to all who met them in their different films. And now, another of the great stars has left the earthly plane, specifically it is the British Leslie Phillips , which went at 98 years of age.

The death of the actor was confirmed by his wife Zara , who praised Phillips as a national treasure. Zara mentioned the environment known as The Sun The following:


I have lost a wonderful husband and the public has lost a great showman.

It was simply a national treasure. People loved him. He was assaulted wherever he went. When we got married, he introduced me to the press as a member of royalty, insisting that I was the new Zara Phillips and that he was related to the queen.

It is worth mentioning that Phillips has been one of the best stars in British cinema since great successes such as Carry on. But his younger fans know him more for having given life to the selecting hat. This character had active participation during the first two films of the Harry Potter franchise.

Editor’s note: It is somewhat strange that two HP world actors have gone in a few months of difference, because let’s not forget that Robbie Coltrane also left. Although it is understandable that Phillips has retired more for natural issues.
