BD Wong, who played Dr. George Huang in NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," has had an eventful life since the American crime drama ended in 2015.


The Asian-American actor was born and raised in San Francisco, California, and made his debut as a Broadway actor in the play "M. Butterfly" back in 1988 and racked quite a few awards for his role.

Wong has since starred in a host of TV shows and plays like "All-American Girl," "Sesame Street," "The X-Files," and "As Thousands Cheer," followed by a critically acclaimed performance in "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown."

The Tony Award-winning actor then went on to play the iconic role of Dr. George Huang in the NBC crime drama series before going back to his roots, the Broadway.

Recently, the "Jurassic Park" star has been busy with rehearsals of Lauren Yee's play, "The Great Leap." However, this time around, instead of acting on stage, he will be directing it.


Wong has been the face of the previous two versions of the play, so the talented actor has the lines memorized by heart, making it easier for him to call the shots as a director.



The "Bird Box" star also started a new marital life in the fall of 2018. Wong married his long-time partner, Richert Schnorr, on October 7, 2018, on the Water in Brooklyn.


Just a day before their big day, Schnorr, a 35-year-old director of digital media for the New York Public Library, had shared a lovely picture of the to-be-wedded couple over on Instagram.

According to "The New York Times," Wong and Schnorr met in 2010 in a singles mixers event hosted by an online dating site in New York.



The "Mr. Robot" star came out of the closet in the '80s and was in a romantic relationship with producer Richie Jackson, who is now married to Jordan Roth, president of Jujamcyn Theaters.

The couple had hired a surrogate mother in 1999 to bear their child. Wong provided the sperm to fertilize Jackson's sister's ovum, and the mother gave birth to male twins.


Unfortunately, one of the twins, Boaz Dov Wong, died at birth as a result of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome; the other one, Jackson Foo Wong, was adopted by the couple.

Although the couple has since separated, they still share joint custody of their son. Wong has detailed their journey to parenthood in his 2003 book "Following Foo: the Electronic Adventures of the Chestnut Man"
