Greg Wise was a British actor born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in May 15, 1966. The son of Douglass Wise, an architect, Wise attended St. Peter's School in York and studied architecture at Heriot-Watt University. His plan was also to become an architect, but after performing with the Edinburgh University Theatre Company, he attended the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Wise made his television debut in an episode of the British/American production "Covington Cross" (ABC, 1992), and his film debut in "Feast of July" (1995). That same year, he landed his breakout role in the Jane Austen adaptation "Sense and Sensibility" (1995) as John Willoughby. Directed by Ang Lee and written by and starring Emma Thompson, the film was critically acclaimed and commercially successful, netting seven Academy Award nominations and a Best Adapted Screenplay award for Thompson. Wise and Thompson also struck up a romance after working together on the film. In 1996, he made an appearance in an episode of "Tales from the Crypt" (HBO, 1989-1996) among various British television roles. Thompson gave birth to the couple's daughter in December 1999, and Wise then went to play Rodolphe in a TV movie adaptation of "Madame Bovary" (2000). He acted opposite Rowan Atkinson in the comedy "Johnny English" (2003), and that same year, married Thompson. The couple also adopted 16-year-old Tindyebwa Agaba, a Rwandan refugee and former child soldier, in 2003. Agaba became a British citizen in 2009. Wise acted extensively in British television throughout the 2000s and 2010s, primarily in episodic and recurring roles, but he also landed a starring role on the short-lived sitcom "According to Bex" (BBC One, 2005). He acted from a script written by Thompson with "Effie Gray" (2014), and starred alongside her and Dakota Fanning. Wise also played Lord Mountbatten as part of the main cast in the critically acclaimed and popular "The Crown "(Netflix, 2016- ).
