Modern-day gentleman thief and the "most wanted man" in France, Assane Diop is back on Netflix later this month for Lupin Part 2.


The first season of Lupin introduced us to the charming Parisian thief, who takes his cues and draws inspiration from the Arsène Lupin books, and specifically its central character.

Assane is played on-screen by French actor Omar Sy in the cast of Lupin, but some UK viewers may have noticed that the character speaks with American-accented English (and that the dialogue might not always match up to what Assane appears to be saying...).

But is Lupin Part One and Part Two dubbed, and who voices Assane and other central characters?

Is Lupin dubbed?

Yes, Lupin Part One and Part Two are dubbed for Netflix UK users, with English-speaking voice actors dubbing over the original French dialogue with American-accented English.

If you'd prefer to hear the original French and watch the show with English subtitles instead of dubbing, it's easy to change in Settings, under Audio.

Who are the English-speaking voices in Lupin?

The English-speaking voice actors in Lupin dub over the original French dialogue, and all the key replacement voices have American accents.

Austin Warren (Hot Tub Time Machine) provides the English voice for Assane Diop, who is played on-screen by Omar Sy in the series cast.

Other voice actors include Lindsay Seim (Insidious: Chapter 2) who voices Claire, Assane's ex-girlfriend and the mother of their son.
