Dominique Paturel, the French voice of Larry Hagman in Dallas, and also of Michael Caine, Terence Hill, Robert Duvall, Frank Sinatra or Vittorio Gassman has died at the age of 90, AFP reports.

According to the report, the French actor Dominique Paturel, famously known as the French voice of JR Ewing in Dallas, a hit 1980s series, died at the age of 90, his family said on Tuesday.

“My uncle died Monday evening at the hospital in Saint-Brieuc (Côtes-d’Armor). He had been suffering from diabetes for some time and had to be amputated. His general condition has deteriorated recently”, his nephew Loïc Paturel had told AFP.

The funeral will take place Friday at 2:30 p.m. in Pordic (Côtes-d’Armor), “the family cradle, where he will be buried”, continued his nephew.

“He was one of the last to have played under the direction of Jean Vilar (famous director, founder of the Avignon festival)”, adds Loïc Paturel. “He had nearly 80 plays to his credit and around thirty films. He was part of this generation that knew how to do everything.”

Dominique Paturel: Hundreds of dubbed characters

Dominique Paturel was best known to the general public for the dubbing of JR, an unscrupulous character, who became a cult character, from the American series Dallas.

“I had a wonderful chance. Maybe, thanks to the dubbing, I had this choice to be able to accept or refuse theatre or television projects that did not suit me”, he had once said to the “Objective Cinema” website.

He was also the French versions of films such as The Laureate , Patton , Barry Lyndon , The President’s Men , Elephant Man , Mad Max 2 , Millenium and a number of iconic American series ( Columbo , The Invaders , Agence all risks , Desperate Housewives …).

Previously, in the 1960s and 70s, he was a familiar face on the small screen thanks to series like Le chevalier de Maison-Rouge or d’Artagnan . In the cinema, it has been directed by renowned directors, such as Christian-Jaque, André Cayatte or Philippe de Broca.
