Anthony Brandon Wong
Anthony Brandon Wong is an Australian actor of Chinese descent. The majority of his roles have been in action movies and dramas, and he is probably best known for his role as gunner and assassin Ghost in the science fiction movies "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Matrix Revolutions." Besides being an expert weapons specialist, Ghost is known for his stoicism, his knowledge of philosophy, and for his cool efficiency in taking out the enemy. He is also in love with Trinity. The character is featured in the video game "Enter the Matrix." Wong set out to be a journalist after college, but his love for acting won out. He landed early roles playing a martial arts fighter on an Australian children's show and roles in a "The Saint" television movie and the revamped "Mission: Impossible" television series in the late 1980s. The actor feared typecasting, however, and desperately wanted more challenging parts. He also landed major roles in the Australian television programs "Spellbinder: Land of the Dragon" and "Home and Away." Post-"Matrix," Wong auditioned for several Hollywood productions, subsequently nabbing parts in the remake "Flight of the Phoenix," in an episode of "Glee," and in the Steven Soderbergh action movie "Haywire," to name just a few productions.
