Christian Rode is dead. The actor, dubbing and radio play spokesman was 81 years, as the Westphalian News citing his spokesman and the agency voice reports. Accordingly, the artist died on the weekend in Berlin in the presence of his wife.
 
For decades, Rode understood as a voice actor and audiobook productions, with its deep timbre to captivate audiences and listeners. The career of the native hamburger began on stage and in front of the camera. In the mid-1950s, Rode completed his theatrical debut, a decade later he had worked his way up to film and television, where he also worked in international productions thanks to his language skills. In 1960 he was a cast of the famous "Faust" staging, in which Rode's mentor Gustaf Gründgens played the Mephisto. Other films with Rode are "Winnetou and his friend Old Firehand" and the filming of "It does not always have to be caviar".

From the mid-1960s found Rode reinforced in the film synchronization employment - almost ten years earlier, he had failed in his first speaker test with flying flags and had then turned the profession over a longer term back. Among the performers to whom Rode frequently lent the German voice were Michael Caine, David Carradine ("Torches in the Storm"), Craig T. Nelson (about in “Parenthood”), Robert Culp, Christopher Plummer, Barry Bostwick (about in "Chaos City") and Dennis Farina (about in "Law & Order" ). He was also the successor as spokesman for Bert from the "Sesame Street" After his original spokesman Wolfgang Kieling died in 1985. Rode portrayed more than 600 roles in the dubbing studio.
 
From the 1970s, Rode increasingly opened up the production of radio plays as another foothold. According to the Talker Lounge, he has appeared on more than 100 productions on the label Europa alone (including "Masters of the Universe"), in a recent reissue of the works of Arthur Conan Doyle of Verlagsgruppe-Hermann he spoke to Sherlock Holmes. One of the last roles of Rode was according to the sync file in the fourth episode of the upcoming ProSieben series "The Orville" ,
From 2007, Christian Rode had engaged in the speaker school of his colleague Carmen Molinar , which was renamed in 2014 in his honor Christian Rode Sprechschule . Rode. I had on one of the latter Dreamland CDs still the congratulations to his eighth birthday last year heard. One of the voices that I've heard and liked from a young age has been silenced forever.
