Tommy Davis's Hollywood experiment is apparently over as he moves to Splitsville - 2017-07-20
We heard from a tipster several months ago that things were changing in a big way for former Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis, but we had a hard time confirming it. At one point we even put out a public request for help, but to no avail. Now, however, it turns out that our anonymous helper was correct, and we can comment on a couple of changes in Tommy's life.
But first of all, why do we care what Tommy's up to? Well, more than a decade after Davis emerged as Scientology's very visible international spokesman, people still seem to have a huge fascination for the guy. The son of actress Anne Archer, Tommy was brought up in Scientology and was something of a go-fer and handler for actor Tom Cruise as he rose through the ranks. By the mid-2000s, Davis was the public face of Scientology and was tasked with tangling with the press, sparring with the likes of ABC's Martin Bashir and the BBC's John Sweeney as Scientology leader David Miscavige pursued a more aggressive approach to the media.
Today, the church itself has no one to put in front of cameras, and it asks attorneys to make statements and appear on television programs. So maybe it's no wonder that many members of the public miss Tommy and his antics. By 2011, however, we noticed that he'd seemed to have disappeared. He turned up in Austin, where his wife Jessica Feshbach's family had some property, and in 2013 Davis testified in a deposition that he was "on leave" from his job in the Sea Organization but was still a member of the Church of Scientology.
