GERMAN VOICE DIES
Sad news for fans of 'The Prisoner' in Germany has been announced, that Bernd Rumpf, one of two men who provided the voice of Patrick McGoohan for 'Nummer Sechs' (the dubbed German 'Prisoner' series) has passed away at a hospice in Berlin.
The timing is particularly poignant, as his passing comes only a few days before the German 50th anniversary celebrations in Giessen (more details HERE), in which German fans of the series will come together with series music editor Eric Mival (and, it was hoped, Bernd) to celebrate this important landmark, the organisers having been in touch with Bernd for many years.
On its initial run, only 13 episodes of the series were dubbed into German, with the last four not dubbed until 2010. It is these four episodes on which Bernd worked and provided the voice of the lead actor.
The Unmutual would like to offer its sincerest condolences to Bernd's family and friends. He was, by all accounts, a much-loved man and a very talented actor.
