Beloved comic actor Gaspar Henaine Perez, known as “Capulina,” died yesterday at a Mexico City hospital, the Associated Press reports. Mexico’s equivalent of Oliver Hardy, Henaine Perez appeared in almost 100 films over six decades, frequently as the inept but loveable sidekick in the slapstick duo “Viruta y Capulina.” Although the official cause of death has not yet been released, Henaine Perez had been suffering from ulcers and pneumonia. He is survived by his wife, son, and daughter.
