Interpreter from Peru at the Escolinha do Professor Raimundo (1990-1995), Orlando Drummond died this Tuesday (27). The veteran was 101 years old and was highlighted in the character created by Chico Anysio (1931-2012), in addition to other work in the dubbing, such as the voice of Scooby-Doo in the films.
The information was reported by journalist Ancelmo Gois, from O Globo newspaper. The cause of death was not disclosed. O TV news contacted the station’s staff, but did not get a response until the publication of this text.
Drummond leaves behind two children, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. In May 2021, the actor was hospitalized because of a urinary tract infection and remained for about two months under medical care at a hospital in Rio de Janeiro.
