Constantino Romero García (29 May 1947 – 12 May 2013) was a Spanish TV and radio host and actor. Due to his deep voice, he was most known for dubbing into Spanish other actors like Clint Eastwood, James Earl Jones and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Terminator or The Expendables films.


Radio and TV
Romero was born in Albacete and grew up in Chinchilla de Monte-Aragón (Albacete) where his mother lives. All his family are from Chinchilla and Almansa. His professional career began as an announcer at Radio Barcelona and RNE until 1985 when he made his first appearance in television as the host of the program Ya sé que tienes novio. From 1987 to 1992 he presented the game show El tiempo es oro on TVE. Later he moved to Antena 3 where he was very popular.

Later he appeared in the regional TVs with the game show La Silla and replaced Silvia Jato in Pasapalabra in Antena 3 when she became a mother. He worked at CMT since 2002 to 2010. In 1984 he made his first stage appearance with L'Ópera de tres rals directed by Mario Gas. Both worked together in the musicals Sweeney Todd in 1995 and A Little Night Music by Stephen Sondheim. Another play in which he appeared was The Little Shop of Horrors, giving voice to the carnivorous plant.

Voice actor
He was known as a voice over actor for some famous actors. Among his notable appearances in Spanish versions of foreign-language films, he was the voice of William Shatner in Star Trek, of Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator film series, of Sean Connery in Outland, and of James Earl Jones' role as Darth Vader where Romero, rather than Jones, says "I am your father" (Yo soy tu padre).

His voice also dubs in several Disney films, for example, in The Lion King, as Mufasa's voice, in The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, as Frollo's voice, and in Mulan, the Supreme Ancestor.

In 1999 he won an Antena de Oro Award and two TP de Oro awards.

Retirement and death
He retired on December 12, 2012, after his last job as a voice actor: Trouble with the Curve. He announced it through his Twitter account:

"Thanks for the affection. It's been 47 years of work. And a whole life. Radio, TV, theatre, dubbing. It's been worth it. A hug. That's all folks!*" (* in English in the original). He showed his thankfulness to his fans with the words "I've always known that the best part of my job were people".

He died on May 12, 2013, in Barcelona at the age of 65.

Mais il n'est pas aimé par les autres gorilles et souffre de sa particularité. Flocon a heureusement plusieurs amis : Ailur, une panthère noire bouddhiste réincarnée dans le corps d'un panda rouge, et Paula (Claudia Abate), une gentille petite fille. Avec leur complicité, il décide de s'échapper du zoo et d'aller trouver la Sorcière du Nord (Elsa Pataky), qui fait partie de l'équipe du cirque voisin, dans l'espoir qu'elle pourra l'aider à devenir un gorille normal. Mais une fois échappés du zoo, les trois amis sont confrontés à Thomas, un homme superstitieux et méchant persuadé que la dépouille de Flocon lui fournirait le parfait porte-bonheur.

Snowflake is special because she's the only white gorilla in the world and once she was too big to stay with her best friend and owner, Wendy, Snowflake became the zoo's main attraction. Children love her, but Petunia and Elvis' father Anvil doesn't because she's different. Snowflake tries to make friends with the other gorillas but Anvil wouldn't allow it. With the help of an eccentric red panda named Jenga, Elvis and Petunia, Snowflake plans a secret mission to sneak out of the zoo and venture into the dangerous city to find the witch Bruhmilda at the circus who can help her become a "normal" gorilla. Will Snowflake find the cure she's looking for or realize that there's something more important than fitting in-being true to yourself?
