René Murat Auberjonois (not to be confused with the artist and his grandfather René Victor Auberjonois) is an American actor and voice actor.


René was born on June 1, 1940, in New York City, New York, into an already artistic family, which included his grandfather, a well-known Swiss painter, and his father Fernand, who was a writer. The family moved to Paris shortly after World War II. There, his school put on a musical performance for the parents, and René, then six years old, was assigned to conduct his classmates in a rendition of "Do You Know the Muffin Man?". When the performance was over, René took a bow, and, knowing that he was not the real conductor, imagined that he had been acting, deciding to pursue such a career as a result. After leaving Paris, the family moved into an Artist's Colony in upstate New York. At an early age, René was surrounded by musicians, composers, and actors, including Helen Hayes, Burgess Meredith, and John Houseman, the latter of whom would later become an important mentor to him. Houseman later gave René his first theater job at the age of sixteen, as an apprentice at a theater in Stratford, Connecticut.

René would later teach at Juilliard under Houseman. He attended Carnegie-Mellon University and studied theater, not only learning about acting, but about the entire process of producing a play. After graduating, René acted with various theater companies, including San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater and Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum. In 1969, he was able to acquire a role in his first Broadway musical, "Coco", for which he won a Tony Award. Since then, René has acted in many theater productions, films, and TV series, including a well-known role as Clayton Endicott III on the comedy series Benson, and also spent seven years on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as Odo. He has also done a number of dramatic readings of a variety of books on audio-tape. René's most recent projects have included The Patriot and Sally Hemings: An American Scandal. In the fall of 2000, he also appeared on NBC's Frasier and ABC's The Practice. In 1963, he married Judith Mihalyi and had two children, Tessa and Remy, with her.
