Birth Name: Lambert Wilson
Born: 08/03/1958
Birth Place: France

While continuing to amass host of credits in European films and television productions, Wilson continued to gain ground in Hollywood, appearing in piopular fare like the lavish TV miniseries "Don Quixote" (2000), in which he played the Duke. But it was in 2003 that Wilson received his greatest exposure to mainstream audiences when he he brought an oily, unctuous charm to the silkily sinister and corrupt computer program the Merovingian in the blockbuster sequels "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Matrix Revolutions" (both 2003). He essayed another oily villain, Sharon Stone's cosmetics mogul husband George Hedare, in the dismal comic book adaptation "Catwoman" (2004). In "Sahara" (2005), an adaptation of the Clive Cussler novel, Wilson played an evil French entrepreneur who uses the Mali army to cover up a toxic spill that is the source of a mysterious plague.
