A prolific actor who appeared in many films, including the controversial Cannibal Holocaust is a 1980 Italian cannibal film directed by Ruggero Deodato and written by Gianfranco Clerici.

His most infamous role, Alan Yates in Cannibal Holocaust (1980), was given to him because the wardrobe was already bought and they needed an actor who wore size 10 1/2 shoes. He had no idea what the role or the movie was until he arrived in South America and read the script. During the filming, he was often afraid that they were going to kill him for the movie.

He was one of four actors who the Italian police believed had been murdered in the making of the 1980 horror film, Cannibal Holocaust.
