Birth Name: Stuart Wilson
Born: 12/25/1946
Birth Place: Guildford, England, GB

Once his profile in American films was enhanced with his villainous turn in "Lethal Weapon 3", Wilson found more or less steady work in the States for a couple of years. He offered another villain, this time a gun-running mercenary, in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III", then turned more genteel but retaining an air of mystery as a suitor to the Countess (Michelle Pfeiffer) in "The Age of Innocence" (both 1993). The following year, the actor was tapped to play the leader of an anarchic band of rebels in the muddled sci-fi actioner "No Escape", cast as a diamond smuggler who seeks refuge in a sex retreat in the uneven comedy "Exit to Eden" and portrayed Sigourney Weaver's husband in Roman Polanski's film version of Ariel Dorfman's play "Death and the Maiden". Wilson went on play Helen Mirren's lover in two installments of "Prime Suspect" in 1995 and 1996 before etching another nefarious character, the Spanish governor, in "The Mark of Zorro" (1998), opposite Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins.
