B. D. Wong Net Worth is $8 Million (as of 2020)
As for the day, B. D. Wong net worth is estimated at $8 million and of course, this is an impressive sum. However, some people claim that it is still inadequate having in mind what a talented actor he is. After all, Wong holds one of the most prestigious awards that an actor can possibly receive- Tony Award for the performance as Sony Liling in M. Butterfly. The list of television and movie roles he has done is also pretty impressive, to say the least. For example, among his credits are roles of Dr. George Huang on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Father Ray Mukada on Oz and Dr. John Lee on Awake. The actor has also featured on quite a few memorable films, such as Jurassic park, Jurassic World and And the Band Played on. Then why does B. D. Wong net worth remain relatively low? And looking back at the past, was there anything special about his career choice? We will answer these and some of the other questions you may have in the following paragraphs.

Acting is not the only talent that Wong has been blessed with. As a child he has also practised playing violin “to a certain amount of success” (to quote the actor himself). However, it was not long before the future millionaire has realized that music is not his real passion. The only reason he was playing violin was because he was good at it and hence, everyone who has heard Wong playing encouraged him to continue. At a certain point BD has stopped dedicating all of his free time and talent for the music and dived into his real passion – theatre. Some of the quotes attributed to Wong allow us to suspect that his parents were not particularly excited about his career choice. For example, the actor is quoted saying: “Asian people are very practical and come from a conservative world. The parents want their kids to be doctors and lawyers”. And as about allowing their children to take acting as a job, he has notice that “once the parents find out the children might miss school, they’re opposed to it.” Anyway, judging from the current B. D. Wong net worth, it was not a bad decision and I bet that his parents would agree with this.
If you think about it, it is incredible how successful Wong has been at the earliest stage of his career. He started performing as Song Liling on M. Butterfly at the age 28 and soon became the only actor to receive Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Clarence Derwent Award, and Theatre World Award for the same role. So why does B. D. Wong net worth remain relatively low? Apparently, it is his Chinese-American decent that makes him unsuitable for many roles.
