Quebec actor Aubert Pallascio, who has enjoyed a career spanning over six decades in theater, television and film, died at the age of 82. Her family announced the news on Monday.
He died the day before at the Saint-Raphaël palliative care center in Montreal. He suffered from cancer.
He was best known to the Quebec small screen audience, especially for his role in The Legacy, a series by Victor-Lévy Beaulieu broadcast between 1987 and 1990. Later in his career, we also saw him in the series Omerta and Providence, among others.
His voice was well known to moviegoers: he dubbed the American actor Morgan Freeman in several feature films.
Born in Montreal in 1937, he went into exile in France in his twenties to be trained at the Paris Conservatory.
He then performed in numerous plays produced by Montreal theaters such as the Théâtre du Nouveau-Monde, the Théâtre du Rideau-Vert and the Théâtre Denise-Pelletier. He has also participated in numerous Radio-Canada teletheatres.
