Lambert Wilson (born August 3, 1958 in Neuilly-sur-Seine) is a French stage and screen actor of French and Anglo-Irish descent.

The son of actor and stage director Georges Wilson, he decided he would become an actor the day he watched a screening of The Three Musketeers in 1973. While he had initially little regard for French theatre, he ended up honing his skills on stage first and hasn't stopped performing on stage since. His big film acting break happened in The '80s, with his role in André Téchiné's Rendez-vous.

He is known for alternating French productions of all kinds and English-speaking roles (such as the Merovingian in the Matrix films, probably the role he's best known for internationally).

Works he has appeared in include:
