The world has lost another magical force of entertainment with the passing of famous English actor Leslie Phillips. As The Sun reports, Phillips passed peacefully in his sleep on November 7, 2022, at the age of 98.
Leslie Phillips had over 174 acting credits, with his first role being an unaccredited bit part in "Lassie from Lancashire" in 1938. Perhaps what Leslie Phillips is best known for these days is playing the Sorting Hat of the "Harry Potter" movies.
Speaking with the BBC in 2014, Phillips said of his voice work involving the "Harry Potter" franchise and other such endeavors, "I have done quite a lot of voices in my time. I have a distinctive voice, and through the years of work that I've done, my voice is well known.”
