During that time, he became acquainted with Edward Albee, who pointed him to study method acting with Lee Strasberg in New York City. Landzaat joined his private classes at Carnegie Hall and became a lifetime member of the Actors Studio. There he found his inspiration and acting development from sharing and experiencing the work by actors like Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. Even though that theatre was his passion, because of his Dutch accent Tennessee Williams suggested he go to Los Angeles for the TV and film work. He then received a Soap Opera Award for portraying the character of Tony Cassadine on General Hospital. He developed a close relationship with Betty Garrett when he also became a member of Theatre West. Garrett was a big influence in helping him to sing his very first song when she was the moderator for many many years for their musical comedy workshop. Landzaat resides in Los Angeles and besides continuing with his acting career, he also teaches the method acting to young and beginning actors at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. Often, he travels to Europe to conduct workshops in method acting. (en)
