RIP Conchita Núñez

I came across this obituary in a list of Spanish actors who died in 2009.

Conchita Nuñez began her acting career in film in the 1960s. During that decade he worked in several films: “Bahia de Palma”, John Bisch (1962), “Hands of a Gunman”, Marchent Rafael Romero (1965), “Jugando a morir”, Joseph H. Gan (1966), “Educando a una idiota”, Ramón Torrado (1969), “Las cicatrices”, Pedro Lazaga (1969), Los extremeños se tocan”, Alfonso Paso (1970). “Gan” (1966). After this first stage of her career she began to devote increasingly more time to film dubbing. In the 1970s she participated in the animated series that marked a new era in television, such as Heidi (she was the voice of Peter), or “Marco, the Movie”, and later “Oliver” and “Benji”. In her long career as a voice actress she turned to television characters from series like Dynasty (provided the voice of Linda Evans both in this and other series and films), Dallas, Law and Order, Judging Amy, and more recently in The Sopranos, Desperate Housewives and Ghost Whisperer, among others. She made her last film dubbing in films “Standoff Negotiators” (2007) and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (2009). Conchta Nunez died on Saturday 27 June.

Conchita appeared in the Eurowestern “Hands of a Gunman” 1965 playing the role of Margaret Dixon and was the Spanish voice of Curtis Arden in the 1969 Sci-Fi Western “The Valley of Gwangi”
