#SPOTTED: “CRAZY RICH ASIANS” STARS MICHELLE YEOH, HENRY GOLDING + HARRY SHUM JR. IN TORONTO
Starring in the eagerly-awaited upcoming adaptation of Kevin Kwan‘s bestselling Crazy Rich Asians, fellow Malaysians Michelle Yeoh and Henry Golding, plus Glee alumni Harry Shum Jr. coincidentally all are in Toronto right now working on their own respective projects. We spotted them having a mini crazy-rich reunion over sushi at hotspot Ja Bistro!
Yeoh, known best for her work in Academy Award-winning Films Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Memoirs of a Geisha, in addition to a litany of blockbusters in Chinese-speaking Asia, continues filming STAR TREK: DISCOVERY in the City in which she stars as Captain Georgiou. The Series premieres on CBS September 24, 2017! In Jon M. Chu‘s much-hyped Crazy Rich Asians, she plays controlling matriarch Eleanor Young. Yes!
Golding, a fresh face in these parts, is set to make a big splash stateside starring as Nicholas Young in Crazy Rich Asians. He is filming currently Paul Feig‘s (The Heat, Bridesmaids) debut Thriller, A Simple Favor starring alongside Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. The Film is based on the Darcey Bell Novel of the same name and about a mommy blogger who tries to figure out the disappearance of her friend Emily.
Shum, returns to Toronto where he films the third season of popular Series Shadowhunters (The Mortal Instruments) through next spring, reprising his role as Magnus Bane.
We were lucky enough to stop Yeoh and Golding for a quick chat after their dinner and they were amazing to stop for Selfies en route to their next stop on their Friday night in Entertainment District.
