Oh yes! Grant Gustin and his wife-to-be Andrea Thoma will be visiting Malaysia this December :)
During the Hollywood Foreign Press Association press conference at Comic-Con over the weekend, “The Flash” star revealed that he is excited to try Malaysian food. “Trying new food usually scares me but when it comes to the taste of Malaysian foods that I have had, I am into it,” he explained.
Gustin also revealed that he met Thoma, who is half-Kadazan, through social media. “She went to school with my brother in Norfolk, Virginia, where I am from. I didn’t know her then. The 2 of us connected via social media because she was my brother’s friend,” he said. “I was with him in New York at the time and she popped up on my page, and I was like, ‘Who is this?’ And he gave me the rundown a little bit, and I followed her, and the rest is history.”
Besides that, the 27-year-old actor also shared that his knowledge of Malaysia and its culture is limited to what Thoma has told him. “In December, we will see what it is about the culture that I would love, and I am sure there are things that I will love,” adding that he has learned some simple Malay phrases.
Grant Gustin first gained mainstream fame when he played Sebastian Smythe in Fox’s musical comedy “Glee”. He has also starred in “A Mother’s Nightmare”, an original film for the Lifetime, and Kevin Asch’s independent film “Affluenza”.
