BiographyEdit

Capone's most notable roles include the dubbing of Ronn Moss (Ridge) in the Italian version of The Bold and the Beautiful, and Stephen Collins, the Rev. Eric Camden in 7th Heaven, as well as being the narrator of many documentaries on the Italian national television network RAI.[2] Previously, he was also the voice of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars trilogy, the voice of Stephen Fry, who played Oscar Wilde in the film Wilde, Franz Joseph I of Austria in the Sissi trilogy, and Don Johnson in the programme Miami Vice.[3]

Two days before his death, he became extremely ill. Because of this, he had to be transported from Crieff to a nearby hospital in Perth where he died.
