After the 2 sequels to the 1993 blockbuster movie ‘Jurassic Park’, actor BD Wong realized that it was time to step in and take matters into his own hands. The chief engineer who was responsible for the creation of dinosaurs in Jurassic Park never featured a resolution regarding what really happened to the character.
There were speculations suggesting he got eaten by dinosaurs once the park lost power and the dinosaurs started to roam free. Was he successful enough to make it out of the island in one of the last boats?
The absence of the characters in any of the sequels that followed gave rise to questions involving the final fate of Dr. Wu. In the end, the actor was ready to give the fans what they really wanted.
Wong told Business Insider that he was at a point where he wanted to make some online videos and show what really happened to his character. He said, “Silly things for the fans, like he somehow ended up with the shaving cream can”.
He was referring to the famous Barbasol can that was filled up with dinosaur embryos. It dropped out of Dennis Nedry’s coat when the Dilophosaurus in Jurassic Park attacked him.
However, before Wong could carry out his idea, he received a call from Director Colin Trevorrow, responsible for the creation of Jurassic Park. Trevorrow reached over to the actor, a year before Jurassic World and wanted him to reprise his original role.
Wong recalled saying that the offer was great and surely he will do it. However, he did not pay much attention to it as things change all the time. BD Wong is a 54-year-old Veteran actor who worked on Law & Order: SVU for 11 years, playing the role of Dr. George Huang and acting in many movies since the 1980s.
However, Wong declared that when he got the call to act in Jurassic World, he thought it would bring him personally to the next level. Wong declared that he was originally hired from scenes that he did, which were taken from the novel by Michael Crichton, on which Jurassic Park was based.
Wong’s character was stripped bare, but he got over it quickly because starring on a movie of that magnitude helped him snag many other roles. However, Wong was a bit skeptical when Trevorrow called him for Jurassic World, around 20 years later.
Wong thought that Trevorrow guessed he was sensitive about the fact that there wasn’t much about the character. According to Wong, Trevorrow was courting him in a way. Wong said that the character was making a full circle, but Wong declared that they were giving him what was due, in a way of sorts.
