Actor Clive Dunn has died in Portugal on Tuesday from complications following an operation, reports have confirmed. He was 92-years-old.
The actor, who is known to portray “old” characters, was best known for his role in Dad’s Army as Lance Corporal Jones. His memorable catchphrases include “Don’t panic, don’t panic” and “They don’t like it up ‘em.”
The actor was born in London in January 1920 and attended Italia Conti Academy for Theater Arts. He started acting in the 1930s and was cast in Boys Will be Boys and Good Morning Boys. However, it is understood that he temporarily stopped acting when World War II erupted.
Dunn’s previous co-star Frank Williams, said he was always "great fun" to be around.
“Of course he was so much younger than the part he played," he told BBC Radio Four. “It's very difficult to think of him as an old man really.”
It is believed that Dunn spent the last 30 years of his life in Portugal where he painted portraits, landscapes, and seascapes until he lost his sight.
