September 12, 2019

Veteran voice actor and dubber Luis Martín Carrillo died on September 12, 2019 in Spain. He was an actor and actor of Spanish dubber and director. He was the usual voice in Spain of Spencer Tracy, Michael Caine, Peter Falk and Jean-Paul Belmondo. He participated in the dubbing of the Colombo, Team A, Charlie's Angels and Xena La Princesa Guerrera TV series.

He also participated in the dubbing of the classic series of Saint Seiya, The Knights of the Zodiac in Spanish. He made his debut in Episode 54 by voicing Agora de Loto.

. He began his carrer in the world of radio in the 1950s on local radio stations Radio Almeria and Radio Juventud. There he made his first steps as a radio actor, sharing radio hours with María Rosa Granados, Paco Moncada, Juan Jose Perez 'Juanjo' or Plácida García Tristán.
Years later he went to Madrid becoming an actor on National Radio of Spain, where with the learning in the Almerian stations he established himself as an excellent professional. After a certain time on the radio he had the opportunity to enter the world of movie dubbers.
Almeria has doubled almost all the great world famous actors. One of the first interpreters was Spencer Tracy, followed by Raymond Burr in the role of Ironside , Peter Seller, Jack Lemmon, Jean Paul Belmondo, Peter O 'Toole, Steve MC Queen, Peter Seller or Maichel Caine, among others.
Our countryman came to have his own studies in the capital of Spain. Its deep and nuanced voice is unique and privileged. A voice that does not go unnoticed. But it's not only his voice, it's that Luis Martín Carrillo is an extraordinary actor. He moved easily within the drama, although comedy never had secrets for him.
He is remembered dubbing Truffaut on Day for Night; Christopher Plummer in The Thorn Birds; to Robert Loggia in Big , to Steve McQueen in The Towering Inferno; to Fred Astaire in You’ll Never Get Rich. He was even the only one who knew how to take on Colombo, with enough personality to imitate the lieutenant while giving him a personal touch.
Another Almerian, a great that we add to an already extensive list of characters of our land.

RIP Michael Ruby

Michael Eugene Ruby (1954 - 2019)

September 10, 2019

RED LODGE, Montana - Michael Eugene Ruby, 65, passed away peacefully on September 4, 2019. Mike was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, son and friend of many. Mike was born March 12, 1954, in Ashland, Wisconsin, to Donald Leroy and Marion (MacDonald) Ruby. The family moved from Wisconsin in 1955 to Billings, where Mike graduated from Billings Senior High in 1972. He has continued to remain friends with many of his high school classmates throughout the years. Mike was known most for his kind heart, love of art, fishing, cooking and, most of all, his ability to accept and to love all. Mike had a great love for his dog of 14 years, "Kaylee," that he had to say goodbye to the day before he passed away from sudden cardiac arrest. Mike was an amazing artist, creating custom artwork and signage since the '70s and soaring as a Supervising Sign-Writer and Art Set Director in Hollywood. Mike began working for the Hollywood Motion Pictures in 1992 after meeting Ron Howard in Billings, who convinced him to do art on the movie "Far and Away." From there, his life's passion was as an artist for movies such as "Return to Lonesome Dove," "Benny and Joon," "Free Willy," "A River Runs Through It," "Red Corner," "Wild Hogs," "3:10 to Yuma," only to name a few. All of the movies he was recognized for can be found by searching IMDb Mike later retired from Motion Pictures and became self-employed as the owner of Ruby Art and a Production Designer for Films and commercials shot in Washington. You would never know that Mike has had so many film and television credits to his name he was such a down-to-earth, generous person. After meeting Mike and having a short visit or hearing one of his interesting stories about his life in the movies, by the time the visit ended, you would be certain to call him your friend. Mike never asked for much of anything; he was the most loving, kind, generous person, who was always giving of himself to others. Named after Saint Michael the Archangel, the patron saint of people who are suffering, he lived up to that name in his integrity and passion for others. He was truly an Angel who walked the earth. Mike loved his family so passionately that he was always willing to help everyone, and could fix anything. He was always up to what seemed to be an impossible challenge. He leaves behind a legacy of love; through him, his paintbrush was an instrument of his expression. Within each of his brush strokes, he made the world more beautiful. This world is a better place because of one man who was everything to everyone. Fish on, Mike, you will be dearly missed by all those who crossed your path. Until we meet again..... Survived by his family, Marion Neill (mother); Diane Ruby (wife); children, Christina Payne (daughter); Todd Payne (son-in-law); Jeremy Ruby (son); Jennifer and Erica Jackson (stepdaughters); Dorothy Foreman (mother-in-law); grandchildren: Aden Payne, Braxton Payne and Hailey Mejia; Alison Besel (sister); Todd Besel (brother-in-law); Ron Ruby (brother); Michelle Ruby (sister-in-law); Dawn Ruby (sister); and several nieces and nephews that he loved dearly. Preceding Mike in death are his father, Donald Leroy Ruby; father-in-law, Russell Foreman; and brother-in-law, Rick Foreman. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, September 12, at Michelotti-Sawyers Mortuary, 1001 Alderson Ave., Billings. Reception to follow. Memorials can be made in his name to the Children's Art Museum, Rez Dog Rescue, Habitat for Humanity or the . Condolences may be made at Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will walk and not become weary. Isaiah 4:31.

RIP Süleyman Turan

Turkish cinema's 'loyal best friend' Süleyman Turan dies at age 82 in Istanbul

Daily Sabah

Süleyman Turan, an iconic actor from the Yeşilçam era of Turkish cinema, died Tuesday at the age of 82 in Istanbul after suffering a heart attack.

The actor passed away at his house in Kadıköy in the early hours of the morning, reports said.

Best known for usually playing the "loyal best friend" of the lead character, Turan last starred in the movie "Sonsuz Bir Aşk"(An Endless Love).

He won the "Best Supporting Actor Award" at the 1971 Adana Golden Boll Film Festival for his performance in "Yarın Son Gündür" (Tomorrow is the Last Day), and at the 1972 Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival for "Güllü" (Rosey).

Turan, whose real name was Süleyman Başturan, was born on November 19, 1936 in Istanbul, Turkey. He studied English Philology at Istanbul University but had to quit in his third year. He is widely known for Güllü (1971), Yahşi Batı (2009) and Indian-style film Şeker Dükkanı (The Candy Shop). Before acting and writing, Turan also worked as an illustrator.

Yeşilçam (Green Pine) is a metonym for the Turkish film industry, much like Hollywood is in the United States. Named after a street in Istanbul's Beyoğlu district, where many actors, directors and studios were then based, Yeşilçam experienced its glory days from the 1950's-70's, when nearly 300 films were being made each year.
