Jeroen Krabbé

Jeroen Krabbé enjoyed an auspicious start in his acting career with roles in two Paul Verhoeven films, the internationally acclaimed Soldier of Orange and The Fourth Man, for which Krabbé won several international acting awards.

That led Krabbé to work in English-language movies such as John Irving's Turtle Diary with Glenda Jackson, Jumping Jack Flash and the James Bond thriller The Living Daylights.

Krabbé continued to demonstrate his range and diversity with his roles in the romantic comedy Crossing Delancey and Chris Menges' award-winning story of South Africa, A World Apart.

Other memorable roles include that of Barbra Streisand's unfaithful husband in The Prince of Tides and opposite Harrison Ford in The Fugitive. Additional film credits include No Mercy, Scandal, Steven Soderbergh's Kafka and King of the Hill, Immortal Beloved with Gary Oldman and Isabella Rossellini and The Disappearance of Garcia Lorca.

Krabbé's work in television includes roles in the HBO movie Stalin, The Odyssey directed by Andrei Konchalovsky and his portrayal of Satan in the CBS movie Jesus.

The son and grandson of artists, Krabbé is also a painter whose work has been shown in the Netherlands, England and the United States. In 1998, Krabbé made his directorial debut with Left Luggage, in which he also starred with Isabella Rossellini and Maximilian Schell.

In 1996, Krabbé was presented with the Netherlands' highest honor in motion picture achievement, the Golden Calf. And in 1999 Queen Beatrix Commander bestowed upon him the Order of the Dutch Lion, the highest honor in the Netherlands.
