RIP Jesús Ferrer

Actor and dubber Jesús Ferrer dies.
He was a popular face on several series on TV3.

The Catalan actor Jesús Ferrer has died at the age of 67 after a long illness, according to confirmed sources of the Catalan Association d'Actors i Directors of Catalonia. His popular face was due to his presence in the TV3 series as La Riera, Porca Misery, Dynamite, Ventdelplà, Plats Bruts and Estació d'enllaç , his was also one of the most distinctive voices in Catalan film dubbing and television: thus, his vocal cords were usually heard for actors like Harrison Ford, Michael Caine and Clint Eastwood.

An occasional film actor (he was in films like "Mejor que nunca" and "El Coronel Macià") TV and Castilian (appeared in television films and miniseries such as 23 F: El día más difícil del Rey, La Bella Otero and TV series such as Central Hospital or Moncloa , Tell me? ), Ferrer was also the institutional voice for several years on the station COM Ràdio and recorded a lot of public service commercials.

Jesús Ferrer was the Catalan voice of Gian Maria Volonté in "Fistful of Dollars" (1964), William Berger’s voice in "Keoma" (1975) and Boots Sutherland’s voice in "Troublemakers" (1994).


  1. I don't know about TROUBLEMAKERS but Ferrer participated in the Catalan, not the Castilian, dubs of FOD and KEOMA. Well, maybe he did do one of the two Castilian dubbed versions of KEOMA: I don't know, I only know that film in English. But the Castilian voice of Volontè in FOD (of which there is only one Castilian version) corresponds to the late Carlos Revilla, Spain's future Homer Simpson.

    Thanks Nzoog, I've made the change to Catalan. The "Troublemakers" credit is listed on the eldoblaje website.

  3. Ah, I see. Yes, TROUBLEMAKERS was done in Castilian then, while the othe two were done in Catalan. The Catalan credits, by the way, are from the sister site, about Catalan voice actors.

    Thanks Nzoog, keep correcting me until I get it right. I wasn't aware of the sister site but have now placed it in my favorites. Much appreciated amigo!
