BD Wong is the middle son of Roberta Christine and William D. Wong; he has two siblings. He went to Lincoln High School, where he began attending acting classes and was involved in a number of school plays. Later, he enrolled at San Francisco State University.

Wong`s career began in the 1980s, landing small roles in several TV series and films, such as “Simon & Simon” (1986) and “The Karate Kid, Part II” (1986) among others. However, he came to prominence by being a part of the Broadway production “M. Butterfly” in 1988, for which he won several awards. After that appearance, his career has gone only upwards, and so has his net worth. During the 1980s, he also appeared in films such as “Family Business” (1989), and “Crash Course” (1988).

With the beginning of the 1990s, his career reached a whole new level, as he began to feature in more notable roles, which only increased his net worth. These started with the role of Henry Wu in the blockbuster film “Jurassic Park” in 1993, and the following year, he appeared in the TV series “All-American Girl” (1994-1995), as Dr. Stuart Kim. In 1997, he was cast in the role of Father Ray Mukada in the TV series “Oz” (1997-2003), and before that he appeared in films “Executive Decision” (1996), with Kurt Russell, Halle Berry and Steven Seagal in lead roles, and “Seven Years In Tibet” (1997), alongside Brad Pitt and David Thewlis in star roles. Before the end of the 1990s, he showed his skills also in such films as “Slappy and the Stinkers” (1998), and he also voiced a character from the animated movie “Mulan” the same year.

He continued to line up success after success in the 2000s, increasing further his net worth, with roles in popular films and TV series such as “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (2001-2015) as Dr. George Huang, and in 2005 he featured in the film “Stay” as Dr. Ren alongside Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds and Naomi Watts. While the “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” lasted, Won made only a few voice appearances, without any notable role, however, after the TV series ended, he started looking for further work, and it was quite easy for him, as his popularity rose immensely throughout the years. In 2015, he made appearances in the film “Jurassic World” in which he repeated his role of Henry Wu, and TV series “Mr. Robot”.

Most recently, he was selected for the role of Hugo Strange in the TV series “Gotham” (2016), and he will also appear in the film “The Space Between Us” which will be released sometime in 2016, and it will certainly increase Wong`s net worth.

Speaking about his personal life, BD Wong was in a relationship with Richie Jackson from 1988 to 2004; they are the parents of twin sons – one of whom passed away right after birth. Their sons were born through a surrogate mother, and Wong wrote about that experience in his autobiographical book “Following Foo: The Electronic Adventures Of The Chestnut Man”. He is also known as a supporter of LGBT, as well as he works with many charities, including Materials for the Arts, Ali Forney Center, among others.
