  • For his role in the Broadway production of M. Butterfly, talented stage and screen actor B.D. Wong (born Bradley Darryl Wong) would enter into history as the only actor ever to be honored with a Tony, a Drama Desk Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, a Clarence Derwent Award, and a Theater World Award for a single performance. Proving equally adept onscreen, Wong's memorable early roles in The Freshman (1990) and Father of the Bride (1991) found him simultaneously attempting to break out of the Asian-American cinema stereotype while seeking out roles that would expand his dramatic capabilities. A native of San Francisco whose musical experimentation during his childhood eventually lead to the discovery of acting, Wong's parents were consistently supportive in nurturing his creative energy. Wong worked his way into Bay Area community theater while still a student at Lincoln High School, and his association with the San Francisco Unified School District proved an essential component in developing his skills as an actor. Following his subsequent graduation from San Francisco State University Wong moved to New York City, where he performed in dinner theater and off-Broadway productions. After making his professional bow in a New York Town Hall production of Androcles and the Lion, Wong began to essay small television roles on such series as Simon & Simon and Sesame Street about the time of his feature debut in The Karate Kid II (1986). Soon thereafter, Wong received coaching from Donald Hotton to prepare for his role in M. Butterfly, and following much critical acclaim, Wong slowly gained onscreen momentum with roles in Jurassic Park (1993) and the HBO AIDS-drama And the Band Played On (both 1993). In his constant search to portray original and diverse characters, Wong had a recurring role as Father Ray Makuda on the HBO series Oz. Subsequent performances included roles in Seven Years in Tibet (1997), voice work in the animated Disney film Mulan (1998), and the crime thriller The Salton Sea (2002). Television viewers became acquainted with Wong through his role on Law and Order: Special Victim's Unit.

QUOTES FROM B.D. Wong CHARACTERS

Capt. Li Shang
You...you fight good.
Capt. Li Shang
A life for a life...my debt is repaid.
Henry Wu
You are acting like we are engaged in some kind of mad science but we are doing what we have done from the beginning. Nothing in Jurassic World is natural! We have always filled gaps in the genomes with the DNA of other animals and if their genetic code was pure many of them would look quite different but you didn't ask for reality; you asked for more teeth!
Henry Wu
You asked for this.
Simon Masrani
I didn't ask for a monster!
Henry Wu
'Monster' is a relative term. To a canary, a cat is a monster. We're just used to being the cat.
Henry Wu
Monster is a relative term. To a canary, a cat is a monster. We're just used to being the cat.
Mulan
Shang!
Shang
Mulan?
Mulan
The Huns are alive! They're in the city!
Shang
You don't belong here, Mulan. Go home.
Mulan
Shang, I saw them in the mountains. You have to believe me!
Shang
Why should I?
Mulan
Why else would I come back? You said that you'd trust Ping. Why is Mulan any different?
Shang
A life for a life my debt is paid
Shang
A life for a life my debt is paid.
Yao
I'll get that arrow pretty boy, and I'll do it my shirt on.
Shang
Whoa, one moment. You seemed to be missing something. This represents discipline. And this represents strength. You need both to reach the arrow.
