Voice actor, director and teacher Joaquín Díaz has died in Spain. He was 83.
Born on August 26, 1930 Joaquín Díaz made his first dubbing work as a child and since the 1950s he became a vital voice for the film.
While he was able to tackle any role, Joaquin Diaz always had a talent for comedy especially prominent roles and managed to make us laugh openly both with comic characters, and with others with much more content.
He has the Spanish voice of such actors as Jack Lemmon, Peter Ustinov, Telly Savalas, Danny DeVito, Max Von Sydow, Ian Holm, Eli Wallach and Bob Hoskins just to mention a few of an endless list.
He has also worked as a dubbing director, especially in the 1970s and 1980s, during which he directed more than fifty films.
Díaz has more than 30 dubbing credits in my database. He was the Spanish voice of Renato Baldini in “Frontier Hellcat” (1964), Antonio Casas in “The Return of Ringo” (1965), Eli Wallach in “Ace High” (1967), Klaus Kinski in “The Ruthless Four” (1967), Alexander Knox in “Shalako” (1968), Iron Eyes Cody in “El Condor” (1969), Rod Steiger in “Duck You Sucker” (1971), Toshiro Mifune in “Red Sun” (1971), Jack Warden in “Billy Two-Hats” (1973) and Gary Farmer in “Dead Man” (1994).
