Moreover, it was his performance as villains in a sequence of international films dating from the late 1980s and early 1990s that was responsible for his international glory, with prominent roles such as Losada in No Mercy (1986), as General Georgi Koskov in The Living Daylights (a James Bond film in 1987), as Gianni Franco in The Punisher (1989), Herbert Woodruffin in The Prince of Tides (1991), and Dr Charles Nichols (a criminal) in The Fugitive (1993).

Furthermore, he appeared in numerous television productions, including a role as Satan in a religious Television production titled Jesus.

Soon enough, he started working on documentaries for Dutch television, which was about his favorite painters.
And in 2015, the first series talked about Vincent van Gogh. After that, it was followed in 2017 by a series documenting about Pablo Picasso, immediately followed in 2018 by Paul Gauguin, and most recently, about Marc Chagall, in 2020.

Aside from acting and directing, he is an established artist. His paintings are remarkable and have appeared on Dutch postage stamps.
