The multimillionaire Wong, 58, is best known for playing Dr. George Huang for ten and a half years on the long-running crime drama. He's also appeared in the Jurassic Park movie franchise and USA Network's Mr. Robot. Just before his Law & Order character left the show, he came out as gay.

The actor married his longtime partner, Richard John Frederickson Schnorr in 2018. Let’s look into the couple’s relationship history.
Schnorr, who holds a net worth of $8 million, is the 36-year-old director of digital media for the New York Public Library. The pair announced their nuptials in The New York Times, telling readers that they met in 2010 “at a mixer for singles, organised by an online dating site, in New York.”
Wong came out in the 80s and went on to star in hit TV shows Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Mr Robot.
