John Bluthal died at the age of 89.
The Superintendent of the Star, who played Frank Pickle in the sitcom of Don Franz, passed away on Thursday evening.
The sad news was confirmed by his agent, who said in a statement: "We are sad to announce that our wonderful client John Bluthel has passed away, our thoughts are with his family at this time.
"John has provided us with all the years of laughter and entertainment, we're going to miss Big Time."
Dawn also paid tribute, sharing a picture of John on Twitter.
She said: "Happy laughs remember today, cheeky, playful, funny.
His cause of death is not yet known.
John would be fondly remembered for his role as Frank, and for the endless, boring stories that his character told the other villagers.
In one touching story, Frank went gay on the radio, only to find that almost no one meant because they thought he was too crazy.
He was born in Poland in 1929 and had to flee to Australia with his Jewish family in 1938 to escape the Nazi regime.
He later moved to England in 1956, where he started a acting career both on screen and on stage.
He landed his first major role in James C. Kennedy in the sixties.
He also appeared in big films such as The Beatles' "Hard Day's Day", "Labyrinth" and the fifth element.
A career in television has seen him perform as a geek. And Nathan Creek, the last of the Summer Wine, one leg in the grave and the Allo. Allo.
His last role was playing alongside Channing Tatum in the Kun Brothers film hail! Caesar.
