#8 Henry Golding
It seems almost unreal that this good looking actor and host from Betong, Sawarak is looking at us from mainstream Hollywood movie screens and working alongside some of America’s most famous leading ladies. Henry rose to fame through the hit film adaptation of author Kevin Kwan’s novel about Asian high society, Crazy Rich Asians. He had auditioned for the role through a global casting call. His confidence and charm won over producer Jon M. Chu and he clinched the role. Hot off Crazy Rich Asians’ success Henry went on to act in Paul Feig’s thriller, A Simple Favour playing the husband of Blake Lively, to moderate success. The actor has signed on for subsequent sequels of Crazy Rich Asians. In November 2019, he appears in the romantic comedy, Last Christmas, also directed by Paul Feig, starring Emilia Clarke.
