Biography

Locchi began his acting career in 1932 starring in the film The Last Adventure and he continued his acting career as a child until 1942. As a voice actor, he dubbed the voices of many actors. He was the official Italian voice of Sean Connery until his death in 1994. Other actors he dubbed included Tony Curtis, Roger Moore, Charles Bronson, Terence Hill, Sidney Poitier, Jean-Paul Belmondo and many more.[3]

Because Locchi was Sean Connery's official voice actor, he was the primary Italian voice of James Bond. Locchi continued to dub Bond while he was portrayed by George Lazenby and Roger Moore. In his animated film roles, he performed the Italian voices of characters in Disney Animated feature films. He was the voice of Baloo the Bear in the 1967 film The Jungle Book and Little John in the 1973 film Robin Hood (Both characters were voiced by Phil Harris). He also voiced King Triton in the Italian dub of The Little Mermaid.[4]

Locchi's daughter Marina Locchi works as a theater actress.

Death

In the summer of 1994, Locchi suffered a heart attack followed by a stroke. He died in November later that year.

After his death, Luciano De Ambrosis became the new Italian voice actor of Sean Connery.
