Gigi Proietti the great Mandrake is dead

Gigi Proietti, one of the best known Italian actors of cinema and theater, died. Proietti died in a private clinic on November 2, his 80th birthday: he had been hospitalized for heart problems and had been in intensive care for a few days. Career between theater, cinema, TV.

Gigi Proietti – as well as an actor, stand-up comedian, voice actor, director, television host, talent scout – made his debut and established himself first in the theater, then also on TV and cinema. His interpretation of Steno’s Mandrake – in the cult Febbre da Cavallo – and de Cavaradossi in La Tosca by Luigi Magni is memorable. Proietti also lent his face to Pompeo in the tv miniseries Dreams and needs by Sergio Citti and to Paco in The property is no longer a theft by Elio Petri. Without forgetting the hugely successful TV series such as Marshal Rocca, The Last Pope King, The Scam Lord and A Bullet in the Heart. As a voice actor he has voiced Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Charlton Heaston, Kirk Douglas, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, Gregory Peck.
