American actor who won a Tony Award for his performance as Song Liling in "M. Butterfly," becoming the only actor in Broadway history to receive the Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Clarence Derwent Award, and Theatre World Award for the same role.

He has since gained more notability for playing the roles Dr. George Huang on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," Father Ray Mukada on "Oz," Dr. John Lee on "Awake," Dr. Henry Wu in the "Jurassic Park" franchise, and Ngapoi Ngawang Jigme in the film "Seven Years in Tibet."

As of 13 August 2017, Wong is the host of the new HLN medical documentary series "Something's Killing Me With BD Wong." As of the season 3 premiere of USA Network's program "Mr. Robot," Wong has been upgraded from recurring in seasons 1 and 2 to a series regular in season 3. He was nominated for a Critic's Choice Television Award for his role as Whiterose in "Mr. Robot," also earning an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series.

Wong has also done extensive voice-over work and stage acting. The most well known of his voice acting roles is that of Li Shang from the Disney animated film "Mulan." He would later reprise this role twice, most notably for the video game "Kingdom Hearts II." Beginning in 2016, Wong appeared in the TV series "Gotham" as Hugo Strange.

Wong began a long-term relationship with talent agent Richie Jackson in 1988. On 28 May 2000 in Modesto, California, the couple had twin sons – Boaz Dov Wong, born at 9:42pm who died about 90 minutes after birth, and Jackson Foo Wong born at 9:58pm – through a surrogate mother, using Wong's sperm and an egg donated by Jackson's sister. In 2003, Wong wrote a memoir about his experiences with surrogacy titled "Following Foo: the Electronic Adventures of the Chestnut Man." Wong and Jackson ended their relationship in 2004. Wong amicably co-parents his son with his ex-partner Jackson and Jackson's partner, Jordan Roth.
