RIP Guy Piérauld

RIP Guy Piérauld

Guy Piérauld has died at the age of 90 years. The gifted actor of fantasy was a pillar of dubbing.

His voice was unmistakable and it was one of the pillars of dubbing. Guy Piérauld was for forty years the French voice of Bugs Bunny and its famous line What’s up, Doc? His particular timbre is also associated with Woody Woodpecker and Kiri the Clown, and fans of TV series of the 1970s will remember the voice of Don Adams in Get Smart. Guy Piérauld was also a remarkable stage actor, who played Mauriac, Beaumarchais, Shakespeare and Molière. On television, he was one of the regulars of the show The Theater Tonight. This visionary also shot a couple of movies with his picturesque appearances, the busker in Ah ! Les belles bacchantes (J. Loubignac, 1954), the attendant in Comment draguer toutes les filles (Mr. Vocoret, 1981), and roles for Etaix Pierre Yves Robert and Philippe de Broca.  He even crossed the destinies of François Truffaut and Alain Resnais. For the first, he was a TV repairman in Domicile conjugal (1972), with Jean-Pierre Léaud and Claude Jade. The second offered a character controller-catcher in Stavisky (1974), starring Jean-Paul Belmondo.
