Born to a British father and a Malaysian mother, Henry Golding ducked the traditional college route to pursue acting, a path that eventually brought him the male lead role in the upcoming Crazy Rich Asians movie, which is adapted from Singaporean author Kevin Kwan’s best-selling book of the same name. “Crazy Rich Asians is a bastion for all Asian talent in Hollywood. Under-representation and stereotyping have always been an issue within the industry, so we hope this film will break down those walls and give minorities the spotlight they deserve,” shares the 30-year-old. Before his silver screen debut, you may have spotted the intrepid traveller as host of travel shows such as Surviving Borneo, Without Boundaries and 2 Brothers 2 Cities.
