Wang was born in Beijing but grew up in Taiwan following the Chinese Communist Revolution in 1949. Wang came to the United States in the 1970s to pursue a PhD in electro-optics at the University of Pennsylvania but during a teaching stint at San Mateo College in the Bay Area, he began acting at San Francisco's Asian Living Theatre. Wang's first film role came as Henry, a singing Chinatown chef, in Wayne Wang's Chan Is Missing (1982). In 1983, Wang and producer Shirley Sun partnered with the Chinese production company, Nanhai, and this led to Wang writing, directing and starring in A Great Wall. For 1988's sci-fi film The Laser Man, Wang revisited his experiences in graduate school where he had studied laser weapon research.
