Henry Golding is one very, very lucky man!
The Singapore-based actor has landed himself another Hollywood role and this time, he’ll work alongside 2 major beauties – Anna Kendrick (of “Pitch Perfect” fame) and Blake Lively (of “Gossip Girl” fame) – in Lionsgate’s forthcoming thriller “A Simple Favour”.
According to Variety, the Malaysian heartthrob has been cast as Lively’s character’s husband, Sean. Based on Darcey Bell’s book of the same name, the upcoming thriller follows mommy blogger Stephanie (played by Kendrick) as she tried to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of her best friend Emily (played by Lively).
The film will be directed by Paul Feig, whose directing credits include “Ghostbusters”, “Bridesmaids”, “Spy”, and “The Heat”. Filming is expected to start on 14th August in Toronto, Canada.
In Golding’s latest Instagram update, it was learnt that the actor is currently in the US vacationing with his wife, Liv Lo, and on his way to the Maple country. “Very exciting new project to be working on with Paul Feig and his team… Toronto here we come!” he wrote.
Born to an English father and a Malaysian mother, Golding is a fully trained hairstylist turned Host/Travel presenter who resides in Singapore and Malaysia. His previous works include “Driving Change”, “Food Reformers”, “Two Brothers Two Cities” and “The 8TV Quickie”. He will next be seen as the lead in Warner Bros.’ “Crazy Rich Asians”.
Congrats, Golding! We can’t wait for “A Simple Favour” to release 🙂
