Toma Caragiu was one of the best Romanian actors, with a rich activity in both film and theatre. He liked to play comic characters, but he excelled also in drama, on of his reference film was "Actorul si Salbaticii" He played alongside great actors such as Stefan Banica, Octavian Cotescu, Anda Calugareanu etc.

Toma Caragiu is most famous for his monologs. In these short stories, he manages to put together a story that combines, sarcasm, satire, black humour. His monologues are subtle and deal with a variety of topics, starting with politics and ending up with mitical concepts. In each and every monologue he puts his personal touch, thus creating a warm and humorous atmosphere. His death was unexpected, occurring in Bucharest, during the earthquake of March 4 1977, while he was in his most creative period of his life, and being far from having said the last word in the Romanian theatre and film, he is remembered by everyone as a great satire artist.

Caragiu died in the 1977 Vrancea earthquake in Bucharest when his apartment collapsed on him. He is buried in the Bellu cemetery.
