About Tessa Auberjonois

Tessa Auberjonois is a stage, film, and voice over actress.


  1. Your father has one of my all-time favorite movie lines. When, as Father Mulcahy, he’s asked how someone like Hawkeye Pierce ever made it into the army, he responds, “He was drafted.” His deadpan delivery is just perfect.

  2. Talia E. Myres says:

    Thanks for sharing this terrific and touching piece about your relationship with your dad. Oftentimes, it’s hard for fans to separate the public persona from private, but your recollections help us do so by painting an accurate picture of a dedicated father and all-around guy. It’s always gratifying when an actor is as nice in real life as they are on the screen, and your dad is at the top of that list.

    PS – nice work in the Cloud Control Promises video!

  3. The first time I saw him perform on stage was at the Metropolitan Opera House. “Do not speak to Daddy,” my mother insisted while we waited for the show to start. We sat through an overture of Andre Previn’s music, and then my father appeared onstage. “Hi Daddy!” I shouted, to the combined titters and shushing of audience-members and the chagrin of my mother and the intellectual elite of New York gathered for Tom Stoppard’s Every Good Boy Deserves Favor.

    thanks, that gave me a big smile.
