ConstantinoRomeroHomenaje

Last Sunday Constantino Romero died. He was a reporter, presenter, actor, but most importantly a dubbing artist.

This is something that people in the English speaking world are generally not aware of, but the voice actors who dub well known hollywood hold a certain degree of prestige in many countries where dubbed foreign films are as popular as local language films.

So, last Sunday the voice of Clint Eastwood, James Earl Jones, Sean Connery, Arnold Schwarzenegger and many other famous parts including the replicant Roy Batty from Bladerunner.

It’s interesting how the dominance of one country’s culture, in this case the strength of the Hollywood film industry, creates important and popular roles in other countries.
