Dubbing is not unfamiliar to Chinese movie buffs, especially for those above the age of 30 who consider it as a special art form. During the prosperous days of dubbed movies in the 1980s, voices behind Chinese dubbed English movies were widely respected, probably more so than the foreign actors and actresses actually in the movie. But as time went by, the golden era for dubbing houses has long since passed.

Today we will visit several voice actors to tell the story behind the sound.
