Esterhazy, Andrea

Post by Johan Melle » 27/08/2018, 23:18

Andrea Esterhazy in The Salamander (1981)
Salamander - Andrea Esterhazy.jpg

Alias: Bondy Esterhazy

Like several other generici who were active in Italian cinema, Andrea Esterhazy was a nobleman - more precisely a count. His full name was Count András Béla Péter Hubert Esterházy and he was born on 19th October 1913 in Bratislava, Slovakia[1].

Known as Bandi (sometimes spelled Bondy or Bondi) to his friends, Andrea worked at the Foreign Ministery in Budapest before the outbreak of WW2. In 1947, he was sent to Rome as an embassy secretary, and enjoyed life there so much that he remained for the rest of his life[1].

He embarked on a career as an actor, and because he was a fluent speaker of German, Hungarian, Italian, French and English, he was cast in small roles in a number of international productions shot in Rome, such as War and Peace (1956), 55 Days at Peking (1963), Obsession (1976) and The Salamander (1981). The majority of Andrea's roles were small (though most of them were speaking parts), but he occasionally played larger roles, such as I gabbiani volano basso (1978).

He died in 1984[1].
