As we know most of the Euro-westerns were co-productions from Italy, Spain, Germany and France which incorporated British and American actors to gain a worldwide audience. The films were shot silent and then dubbed into the various languages where they were sold for distribution. That means Italian, Spanish, German, French and English voice actors were hired to dub the films. Even actors from the countries where the film was to be shown were often dubbed by voice actors for various reasons such as the actors were already busy making another film, they wanted to paid additional salaries for dubbing their voices, the actor’s voice didn’t fit the character they were playing, accidents to the actors and in some cases even death before the film could be dubbed.
I’ll list a Euro-western and the (I) Italian, (S) Spanish, (G) German and (F) French, (E) English voices that I can find and once in a while a bio on a specific voice actor as in Europe these actors are as well-known as the actors they voiced.

Celia Honrubia (1929 – 2014)
Celia Honrubia was born Celia Riva García in Valencia, Spain on January 16, 1929. She was a film actress and Spanish voice actress. Celia was married to director, voice actor Jesus Nieto (Jesús Nieto Obejero) 1927-1999. She was the mother of two daughters María Jesús Nieto and María del Mar Nieto. She was described as a wonderful dubbing actress with one of the most beautiful voices, suggestive and most character in Spanish dubbing that lent her voice to big stars like Farrah Fawcett, Greta Garbo, Faye Dunaway, Katharine Hepburn, among others.
Wife of Jesus Nieto and mom of Mary Jesus Nieto who we talked about yesterday.
