  Viper [Source]

I have read several reviews of The Wolverine that believe russian actress Svetlana Khodchenkova, who plays Viper, was dubbed (example), but IMDb doesn't list a voice actress.

There is a comment on a article that claims:

I heard from a studio exec that worked on the film that everyone was quite unhappy with Svetlana Khodchenkova's performance. They dubbed over all of her lines, and drastically cut down her role in the final cut.

My Question:

  • Is there any official (director, producer, the actress herself,...) confirmation that Svetlana Khodchenkova was dubbed?

    If yes, who was the voice actress?

She was!!! But I don't think she's credited. You can hear in the trailer, she does have a different voice. (go to about 1:57 mins in) First time I saw the movie- I wondered if she was dubbed. The quality of her audio just seemed different... Still though it's definitely one of the better dubbing jobs I've seen- er HEARD! ;D – user5816 Aug 16 '13 at 23:19

I believe the woman who provided the VoiceOver is the same who did the voice of Mandy at the costume party in Eyes Wide Shut. – user6423 Oct 14 '13 at 17:49

I could not find any information about whether her voice was really dubbed. All the official forums and canon do not have any source on this. However, the general community consensus on the issue is yes, her voice was dubbed.

It does seem that way as the voice-over parts seem to dubbed pre-production. But if that really was the case, we do not have a source to confirm that.
