Changinq's voice actor...Same as Li Xiaoyao??

Postby Chibi Jennifer » Fri Nov 12, 2010 8:40 pm

I recently came across this: http://www.ancientchinese.net/voiceactors/ and was shocked to find that Shen Lei 沈磊 dubbed both Li Xiao Yao AND Xu Changqing. But hang on a minute, I thought they used Hu Ge's real voice, didn't they? O_____O

I believe He Ge himself only dubbed Jing Tian, not the other roles.

I only started watching Chinese dramas recently so all this talk of dubbing is confusing me - why do they do this? I understand dubbing into Cantonese, but from what I've been reading they dub over people speaking Mandarin too? is that right? :?

Wow. That's shocking O____O I was always made to believe Hu Ge dubbed both Li Xiaoyao and Jing Tian since I thought their voices sound the same ..

Don't quote me on this, but I believe it's an issue of the actor's accent and/or their voice just simply not fitting the 'vision' of the character. I remember something like that happened to Liu Yifei for the role of Xiaolongnu.

It's standard Chinese practice... As far as I understand, the reason is:
  • Chinese law/regulation requires that TV shows such as this use standard Mandarin for all dialogues;
  • Most Chinese people, including most actors, cannot speak standard Mandarin because they all speak Mandarin with their own local accents, which are not "standard";
  • Therefore, professional voice actors are hired to dub over the dialogues. Voice actors are specifically trained to speak without an accent.

I was browsing through youtube and I read that Hu Ge was saying how he had to go to university during the time he filmed Chinese Paladin 1, so he couldn't dub his own voice - Shen Lei has also dubbed Hu Ge in Liaozhai as Ning Cai Chen...

And it seems so different - Li Xiaoyao and Chang Qing (voice) cos the characters are quite different, as one is more calm, I think the voice actor is pretty good at bringing out different roles.

Oh and if anyone has watched Legend of the Condor Heroes 08, he did Yang Kang lol... so he's pretty good at sounding evil too.

And it's funny but in Cp3, Hu Ge dubbed ALL THREE characters he played :D I think ever since after Liaozhai, Hu Ge is the ONLY actor I know of that has dubbed all of his series with his real voice.

Btw anyone who sees the short promo for Fantasy Zhuxian, if you look at the very last line they talk, you can hear Liu Shi Shi's real voice - to this date I think its her first time using a microphone to dub her voice. I read that somewhere too (she was asking Hu Ge for assistance cos he was used to dubbing)


Oh yes and dubbing - one of the big reasons is Dubbing requires extra time aside from filming - sometimes the actors have other commitments and won't have time for that, so they won't be able to make dubbing, like Hu Ge in CP1. I think Hu Ge is one of the actors who is able to speak standard mandarin without any accents.

These two played couples in many series:

SL(Shen Lei) voiced Zhan Zhao and Li Ye (LY) voiced Xiao Die (New Justice Bao)
SL voiced Zheng Feng and LY voiced Chalice Fairy (Fairy of the Chalice)
SL voiced Li Xiaoyao and LY voiced Zhao Ling'er (CP1)
SL voiced Ning Cai Chen and LY voiced Xiao Qian (Liao Zhai)

... and, they played couples in all those series. LOL I wonder if they are married in real life!
