B D Wong


I spent the morning with this guy at a diversity conference. I sat in the first row, so am positive I blinded him with the flash trying to get his picture! He palys Dr, George Huang on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Very interesting man-good story-between 2 sessions, I spent 3 hours with him-he used no notes, no cards-he spoke from the heart during not only a break-out session, but during the keynote address as well. Warm, funny, sincere-a good way to start a day!

Sounded like a wonderful few hours Chris. Isn't it always wonderful to listen to someone speak when they do so from their heart?

He's a great actor and seems like a wonderful man from some interviews I've read.
Lucky you!

Oh how lucky are you, Chris! He is a favourite of mine on the show and always acts so composed and calm. It sounds like he is the same "in real life". THanks for sharing this experience.

Another fan here! And like the others, I just love it when people speak from the heart and not the cue cards.

What a great way to start the day.
