Tamás Fellegi was born on November 26, 1921 in Budapest, Hungary. After studying acting and directing in Budapest he worked mainly in theater productions primarily as a director but once in awhile he would act in a particular role. In 1956 he fled Hungary with his wife, actress Liane Ger [19??-1990] and his friend János Barta (aka John Bartha) and the three ended up in Rome working at Cinecittà. No known at Tom Felleghy, he would go on to appear in over 200 films his parts were usually small supporting parts and even cameo roles. He usually played high ranking military officers, doctors, sheriffs, lawyers and town officials. He appeared in films until 1991 with his last credited film being "Voices from Beyond". During his long career he appeared in 32 westerns but is probably best remember for his role as Dr. Esson in Dario Argento’s "Cat o’Nine Tails" from 1971.
