I don’t think you picture is the right Robert Maxwell - that’s the disgraced British publishing baron Robert Maxwell.

The photo you show is not of Robert Maxwell, the actor. Your photo is of corrupt UK newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell, who misappropriated pension funds, was totally dishonest, and died when he fell off his yacht - no kidding.
