Von Sydow made his American film debut as Jesus Christ in the Biblical epic film ''The Greatest Story Ever Told'' (1965) and went on to star in films such as ''Hawaii'' (1966), ''The Exorcist'' (1973), ''Three Days of the Condor'' (1975), ''Flash Gordon'' (1980), ''Conan the Barbarian'' (1982) and the James Bond adaptation ''Never Say Never Again'' (1983). He also appeared in supporting roles in ''Dune'' (1984), ''Hannah and Her Sisters'' (1986), ''Awakenings'' (1990), ''Minority Report'' (2002), ''The Diving Bell and the Butterfly'' (2007), ''Shutter Island'' (2010), ''Robin Hood'' (2010), and ''Star Wars: The Force Awakens'' (2015). He portrayed the main antagonist Leland Gaunt (The Devil) in the film adaptation of Stephen King's ''Needful Things'' (1993). In 2016, he portrayed the Three-eyed Raven in the HBO fantasy series ''Game of Thrones'', for which he was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series.
