Henry’s entry on TIME’s website was written by none other than his on-screen mother in Crazy Rich Asians and fellow Malaysian, Michelle Yeoh. In her statement, Michelle wrote,
“The first time I met Henry Golding, I was so delighted that Jon M. Chu, the director of Crazy Rich Asians, had found me the ‘perfect son’. It was Henry’s first feature film of any type, and to walk into a major production and deliver such essential performance immediately showed that this man was going to be a force.”
