Biography

Actor Greg Wise was born in Newcastle, England in 1966, the son of two architect parents (including the well-respected Professor Douglass Wise). Greg received his early education at the revered St. Peter's School of York, and, followed in his parents' footsteps by pursuing an architecture degree at Heriot Watt University. But before long, Wise had a change of heart and his academic quest led him to the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow, where he spent his time studying the dramatic arts. After a brief flirtation with theater acting in the stage musical "Good Rockin' Tonight", Wise broke into television in the early '90s, landing roles in made-for-TV movies like the 1993 sci-fi thriller "Typhon's People" and the short-lived series "Covington Cross" and "The Riff Raff Element". He found his niche in period dramas, including a strong performance in Ang Lee's highly acclaimed 1995 Jane Austen feature film adaptation, "Sense and Sensibility" (in which he appeared opposite stars like Hugh Grant, Kate Winslet, and his future wife, Emma Thompson), and the 1997 BBC stolen-diamond crime-mystery "The Moonstone". With no shortage of work, Wise expanded his range in the 2000s, appearing in guest roles on TV series like "Law & Order: UK" and even popping up in the Rowan Atkinson-starring spy comedy "Johnny English".
