He made his acting debut in Jean-Jacques Annaud's film Quest for Fire (1981). His breakthrough role came when he played Vincent in the TV series Beauty and the Beast, opposite Linda Hamilton. This earned him a Golden Globe and a large fanbase. He has since starred in many films, though his first lead role came in 2004 with Hellboy.
