roles in Yugoslav theater and film productions. His work as an actor and singer throughout the 1970s and 1980s earned him his place among the most popular personalities of former Yugoslavia's stage and screen. He also taught acting at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, Serbia and at his alma mater, the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb. 

At the first signs of ethnic tension in the country, he took an energetic stand, acting and singing, against all nationalisms, incurring the wrath of extremists. His life threatened, he was forced to leave the country with his family in 1992. His first role abroad was the lead in the internationally award-winning film "Before the Rain," which was also nominated for an Oscar. 

Since his debut in Hollywood films, he has become recognized for his roles in "Mission: Impossible II," "The Saint," "Eyes Wide Shut," "Snatch," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," "X-Men: First Class," and the TV show "24." In addition, he has published four books of poetry and released four musical albums. In 2000, he co-founded the Ulysses Theatre in Croatia's Brijuni Islands, where he directs and acts in many of the productions. He currently lives in Croatia.
