Oded Fehr Met His Wife in LA Opera Premiere Dinner Party

The Israel-born actor met his wife, Rhonda Tollefson, at a dinner party following the premiere of the Los Angeles Opera season.

Coincidently, they ended up sitting next to each other. Within a short period of time, they started conversing, becoming friends, and ultimately partners. Rhonda was unaware that he was an actor, though.

When the time came for the actor to propose, he knew Rhonda would answer positively.

Then after a year, the couple decided to take a further step in their relationship and got married in an intimate wedding ceremony.

The pair tied the knot on December 22, 2000.

For a long time, she was suspicious of him. She had an impression of how stereotypical actors were. She eventually discovered that he was a regular kind of guy, and everything turned out okay in the end.

“She’s a wonderful, wonderful woman, and I’m a very lucky man,” he stated. The couple’s first child Atticus was born on January 4, 2003.

After three years, their second child, a daughter named Finley, was born on February 26, 2006. The pair’s second daughter Azelie was born in the summer of 2010.

They resided with his family in Ojai, California, but he said they moved to Austin, Texas, now.

“My wife is brilliant at what she does and has been very supportive of my career moves, particularly UC: Undercover,” Fehr said.

Fehr answered the questions about why they don’t work together.

He said that they weren’t developing projects together because they didn’t want to be in a position where people in the production felt they gave each other the jobs.

“Besides, we’re not starving at the moment,” the actor clarified.
