How does one escape from the shadow of such a famous franchise? If you're Carel Struycken, the answer is to participate in others! Around the same time as his role as the Addams family's taciturn butler, he joined the Star Trek franchise in a repeated guest role on The Next Generation. The 7-foot-tall actor continues to make appearances at sci-fi conventions to this day.
Struycken's other notable role on American TV was on Twin Peaks, where he played the mysterious "Giant." Aside from reprising this role in 2017 and a Netflix original movie, he's lived a quieter life with his family and his photography hobby.
