After relocating to New York in 1991, Fürmann enlisted in the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, and soon after began appearing in a variety of television shows and movies (mostly German-based). Fürmann began racking up award wins and nominations for his work, including a German Television Award in 1999 (for "Die Bubi Scholz Story"), a Bavarian Film Award in 2001 (for "Friends"), and an Adolf Grimme Award in 2005 (for "Wolfsburg"). In fact, Fürmann had become such a fixture and leading man in German cinema, that he was nominated for a Golden Camera Award in 2005 for "Best German Actor."
