Olivier Martinez stars in "Texas Rising" on History Channel as General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. He also recently played the recurring role of Pascal LeMarchal in ABC's drama series "Revenge."

Educated at France's Conservatoire National Superieur d'Art Dramatique, Olivier Martinez has garnered acclaim for his work in theater, television and film.

On the big screen, Martinez starred in "Dark Tide" with Halle Berry, "Blood and Chocolate," opposite Agnes Bruckner and Hugh Dancy, and DJ Caruso's thriller "Taking Lives," with Angelina Jolie, Ethan Hawke, Kiefer Sutherland and Gena Rowlands. Martinez created a stir as Diane Lane's lover in Adrian Lyne's "Unfaithful," opposite Richard Gere, and "S.W.A.T.," alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Farrell and Michelle Rodriguez.

Martinez also co-starred in Robert Allan Ackerman's retelling of "The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone" for Showtime. In a role originally created by Warren Beatty, Martinez played the Italian gigolo Paolo opposite Anne Bancroft and Helen Mirren.

Martinez first gained international attention for his performance as a dashing 19th-century Italian cavalry officer who falls in love with a married woman (Juliette Binoche) in Jean-Paul Rappeneau's "Horseman on the Roof." Other credits include Julian Schnabel's critically acclaimed "Before Night Falls" with Javier Bardem, Bertrand Blier's "Mon Hom," Bigas Luna's "The Chambermaid on the Titanic," Mario Camus's "La Ville des Prodiges" and Eric Barbier's "Toreros" with Claude Brasseur.

Martinez made his motion picture debut in 1992 in Jean Jacques Beineix's "IP5," co-starring Yves Montand. In 1994, he received the Cesar Award for Most Promising Young Actor for his work in Bertrand Blier's drama "1, 2, 3 Soleil," starring Marcello Mastroianni.
