More on Benedict Wong's Family

Benedict was born on 3 July 1971 in Eccles, Greater Manchester. His parents are originally from Hong Kong, which makes his ethnicity Asian. However, he was born and raised in the UK, making his nationality British.

He has spoken up about the struggles of being a non-white Brit in Hollywood and said that non-white actors don't last too long in the industry.

"In America, you're just an American. You're accepted. It doesn't matter that you're of whatever race. If anything, I'm British, and that's it. So let's just get on with it, really," he told The Independent

Moreover, he shared that his identity is often mislabeled due to his ethnic roots.

People often address him as a British East Asian actor, but he's simply British, having lived his whole life in the UK.

On that note, he added,

It's really hard because obviously people label you as a British East Asian actor. And I'm just from Salford; it's where I was born.

Furthermore, Benedict also said it wasn't easy to convince his parents, who had moved from Hong Kong to Ireland and finally to the UK.

His father wanted him to find a job and settle down as soon as possible, but he fought for the chance to take on acting.

Fast forward to the present, he has now become an established name in the industry and has been the face of iconic characters such as Wong in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Kublai Khan in 'Marco Polo.' 

Wong has also appeared in 'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,' 'Spirit Warriors,' 'Gemini Man,' 'Prometheus,' 'Kick-Ass 2,' and others.
