She was born in Los Angeles in 1905 and was the second daughter of six children born to a laundryman and his wife. Her life in Los Angeles fuelled her fascination with Hollywood and in 1919 she secured a small part in her first film, "The Red Lantern". Her most famous film roles were in "Thief of Baghdad", "Old San Francisco" and, most of all, "Shanghai Express" opposite La Dietrich. Discrimination against Asians continued, however, and when it came time to make a film version of Pearl Buck's "The Good Earth", she was passed over for the role that was ultimately given to Luise Rainer. Apparently, Wong was "too Asian" for the role.
