He appeared in two Masterpiece Theatre miniseries, namely The Flame Trees of Thika and The Citadel, in which he starred as a controversial Scottish physician.
During the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, an American Express credit card commercial (Don't leave home without it) included Ben Cross and the 87-year-old Jackson Scholz. When Cross says something about beating Scholz, the latter remarks, You never beat me! with mock indignation. Proving he is still pretty fast, Scholz beats Cross to the draw in picking up the tab with his credit card.
Ben Cross also played Barnabas Collins in the short-lived Dark Shadows revival in 1991.
