Lambert Wilson stars in "Of Gods and Men" as Christian.

Lambert Wilson is a French actor who studied theater in London at the Drama Centre.

Fred Zinnemann gave Wilson his first leading screen role opposite Sean Connery in "Five Days One Summer." He went on to act in more than fifty films with such European luminaries as Claude Chabrol, Luigi Comencini, Andrzej Wajda, Peter Greenaway, Carlos Saura, André Téchiné, Alain Resnais, Jacques Doillon, James Ivory, John Duigan and Deborah Warner.

More recently, Lambert played the Merovingian in "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Matrix Revolutions" by the Wachowski brothers. He worked with Richard Donner ("Timeline"), Pitof ("Catwoman"), Breck Eisner ("Sahara"), Michael Radford ("Flawless"), Marc Caro ("Dante 01"), Mathieu Kassowitz ("Babylon A.D."), John Glenn ("The Lazarus Project"), and Vincent Garenq ("Baby Love"). Lambert also starred in Bertrand Tavernier's "The Princess of Montpensier."

On stage, Lambert has performed with some of the best European directors and playwrights including Jean-Louis Barreault, Antoine Vitez and Harold Pinter. He has acted in numerous plays in Paris and London, including Cocteau's "The Infernal Machine," with Maggie Smith, "A Little Night Music," with Dame Judi Dench at the National Theatre, and "Ashes to Ashes," directed by Harold Pinter. He recently played the part of Fredrick in a new production of "A Little Night Music" with Greta Schacchi and Leslie Caron at Paris' Théâtre du Chatelet. Lambert has also directed several plays, including Racine's "Bérenice" with Kristin Scott-Thomas at the Avignon Festival in 2001, and again in 2008 with Carole Bouquet at Peter Brook's Théatre des Bouffes du Nord. He directed Fanny Ardant in "Music-Hall," by Jean-Luc Lagarce in 2009 and Marivaux's "La Fausse Suivante," at the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in 2010.

Lambert has produced and performed as a singer in three musical one-man shows: "Lambert Wilson Chante" (1990), "Démons et Merveilles" (1997) and "Nuit Américaine" (2004), a tribute to modern American composers. He has recently played the roles of Pangloss, Voltaire and Martin in Bernstein's "Candide," directed by Robert Carsen at Paris's Théatre du Châtelet and Milan's Teatro Alla Scala (2007).
