RIP Lola Cervantes

Voice actress Lola Cervantes died in Madrid, Spain on April 27, 2013. She was 91 years old. Born María Dolores Cervantes Ruescas in Spain in 1922, Cervantes career began on Madrid Radio in 1946 and she did much dubbing between 1940 and 1950 in Madrid, especially at Chamartín Studio. According to the magazine Radiocinema, #242 of March 12, 1955, Lola had dubbed to date: Ann Blyth, Betty Grable, Susan Hayward, Norma Shearer, Diana Durbin, Gina Lollabrigida, Silvana Pampanini, Brbara Stanwyck, Maureen O’Hara, Jean Peters, Merle Opberon and Vivien Leigh.

In 1948 she presented the program "Issues for Women" from Monday to Saturday from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the evening and "Female Office" from Monday to Sunday 7:45 to 8:00 pm. In 1961 Lolita Cervantes presented with José Manuel Martos the program "Moon Waves" Wednesday from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Cervantes was an excellent voice actress and radio host. She also dubbed villains such as Cinderella's wicked stepmother in the Spanish dubbing of the Disney classic.
