French songwriter and actor at the Comédie-Française. He was the father of actor Jacques de Féraudy.
He joined the Théâtre Français in 1880, the company in 1887, and became dean in 1929. The role of his life, which he played 1200 times in nearly thirty years and of which he had a monopoly, is that of Isidore Lechat in Business is business (French: Les affaires sont les affaires), Octave Mirbeau (1903). As part of the Comedy-Francaise he toured Quebec, Montreal and New York in 1922, performing in two plays by Molière. He has been applauded in the use of comedy, his playing full of cheerfulness.
Féraudy also wrote the lyrics of many songs for Paulette Darty, including the famous Fascination, taken up by later by Suzy Delair and Diane Dufresne.
He died in Paris on 12 May 1932.
