Monica Bellucci as Persephone
In the movies The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, Persephone (Monica Bellucci) is the wife of The Merovingian.
In The Matrix Reloaded, Persephone is attracted to Neo and offers to help him if he kisses her with the same passion with which he has kissed Trinity. Reluctantly, he complies and she helps him free the Keymaker. Later, she kills one of her husband's employees.
In The Matrix Revolutions, Persephone warns The Merovingian that Trinity would indeed kill everyone in Club Hel to free Neo from the Train Station, simply because she is in love. This suggests that Persephone perceives and understands love, and may be disheartened by the cynicism of her husband, who seems to be driven solely by greed and lust.
