RIP Patrick Poivey

The French actor, essential voice of the hexagonal dubbing (or post-synchronization as he preferred to name the exercise), left us this Tuesday June 16, 2020 at the age of 72 years. Born in Paris on February 18, 1948 he was the French voice of Tom Cruise, Kyle MacLachlan, Don Johnson and mainly Bruce Willis among the actors who were able to rely on the unique stamp of the actor. During his vocal career who crossed five decades, Patrick Poivey also dubbed Tom Cruise on ten feature films (including Top Gun and Rain Man), Don Johnson (from Deux cops à Miami à Watchmen), Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks, Desperate Housewives), Michael Biehn (Terminator), Mickey Rourke (9 1/2 weeks), Daniel Day-Lewis (The Last of the Mohicans), Charlie Sheen (Wall Street) or even his brother Emilio Estevez (Young Guns). Poivey was the French voice of Terence Hill in the 1980 DVD releases of “They Call Me Trinity” and “Trinity is STILL My Name” and Fritz Sperberg in the TV series “Lucky Luke” (1991) and the voice of Davy Crockett in the 1994 animated TV series of the same name.
