RIP Gisela Fritsch

"Sensational!" - Probably no other statement had generations of children shaped like this so much. Gisela Fritsch Pukaß lent the raging reporter Karla Kolumna (Bibi, Benjamin the Elephant and Co.) her voice. Now it has been learned through an obituary that appeared in the "Tagesspiegel", friends and colleagues mourn the death of the actress. The obit states that the 76-year-old died on July, 3, 2013. In 2006 she was given by the German Berliner an award for synchronous in the category "Outstanding female dubbing work." In addition to the popular children's character set to music Pukaß-Fritsch for the German market was the voice of such actresses as Judi Dench, Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve. She leaves behind her husband and daughter, both of which are voice actors. In the hearts of many, the Grande Dame of the synchronous world will continue to be remembered when the familiar "Hey!" in her signature role echoes through the nursery.

Gisela was the German voice of Wende Wagner in "Guns of the Magnificent Seven" (1968) and Sonia Braga in "From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter" (1999).
