The magazine described Golding as “one of the industry’s must-hire new actors, and for good reason: He’s handsome, he’s suave, and that accent. “
Following the success of “Crazy Rich Asians”, the 31-year-old has been catapulted into Hollywood fame, receiving plenty of offers and acting roles in the upcoming years including “Last Christmas” alongside Emilia Clarke, Vietnam-production “Monsoon”, Guy Ritchie’s crime drama “Toff Guys” featuring Matthew McConaughey and Kate Beckinsale, and the sequel of “Crazy Rich Asians”.
