Life Journey and Languages

Golding was born in Malaysia’s Betong district, in the Sarawak state. He speaks Chinese, Indian, and Bahasa. His mother, Margaret Likan Golding, was born and raised in Sarawak and is descended from the local Dayak Iban tribe. Britishman Clive Golding is his father. Before relocating to Surrey, England, when Henry was eight years old, the family spent nearly five years there. He then traveled to Redhill’s The Warwick School. He spent a couple of years working as a hairdresser on Sloane Street in London before moving to Kuala Lumpur at age 21 to pursue on-camera gigs.

Career Journey

Following a worldwide casting call, it was revealed in March 2017 that Golding and Constance Wu would star in the movie Crazy Rich Asians. Accountant Lisa-Kim Ling Kuan first brought him to director Jon M. Chu’s attention, and Golding’s charisma and personality soon landed him his first acting part. On August 15, 2018, Warner Bros. Pictures released Crazy Rich Asians in the US and Canada. The film received a lot of positive reviews and topped the box office during its first weekend. A month later, Golding played Sean, the character’s husband, in Paul Feig’s suspenseful drama A Simple Favor, which also starred Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick.

Golding was paired with Emilia Clarke in the romantic comedy Last Christmas, directed by Feig, following the success of Crazy Rich Asians and, to a lesser extent, A Simple Favor (in their second collaboration). The movie was released on November 8, 2019, after beginning filming on November 26, 2018, and lasting until February 2019. In Guy Ritchie’s 2019 criminal drama The Gentlemen, which also stars Hugh Grant, Michelle Dockery, and Matthew McConaughey, Golding played a key role. Golding later played Kit, a man who journeys from London to his native Vietnam to disperse his parents’ ashes, in the Hong Khaou film Monsoon.

According to a 29 April 2019 CNBC report, Golding will reprise his role as Nick Young in the two Crazy Rich Asians sequels that will be shot back-to-back.

Along with Golding, Noomi Rapace, Sam Neill, and Daniela Melchior, Assassin Club is a spy thriller directed by Camille Delamarre and written by Thomas C. Dunn. The movie’s shooting has finished in Turin, Italy.

Wife and personal life

On New Year’s Day 2011, Golding met Liv Lo, a Taiwanese yoga instructor and television host. They were engaged in 2015, and their wedding took place in Sarawak in August 2016. Lyla, the couple’s daughter, and the couple reside in Venice Beach, California. Before getting married, Golding underwent the Iban rite of passage known as the bejalai in the wilds of Borneo. He filmed the process for two months (and carried the camera equipment himself) for the Discovery Channel Asia documentary series Surviving Borneo. His adventure came to an end when Ernesto Kalum of Borneoheadhunters Tattoo in Kuching, Sarawak, inked him with a traditional hand-tapped bejalai tattoo. The fig tree that wraps around other trees and assumes their forms to become the tree itself is depicted in a tattoo on the man’s right thigh.

Golding explained his last name to Michele Manelis of The New Zealand Herald in an interview “Isn’t Golding really, truly, Jewish? According to the legend, my grandfather may have been adopted by a Jewish family by that name while he was in London during the war. He adopted their name out of respect, and it was carried on. I’m happy to be a recognized Jew.”

Crazy Rich Asians

Based on Kevin Kwan’s 2013 novel of the same name, Crazy Rich Asians is a 2018 American romantic comedy-drama film that was directed by Jon M. Chu. Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim wrote the screenplay. Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, and Michelle Yeoh are among the cast members of the movie. It centres on a Chinese-American professor who visits her boyfriend’s family and is shocked to learn that they are some of the wealthiest people in Singapore. After buying the rights to the book, the movie was announced in August 2013. The majority of the cast members joined in the spring of 2017, and from April to June of that year, filming took place in some locations in Singapore, Malaysia, and New York City. Since The Joy Luck Club in 1993, this is the first major Hollywood production to have a majority cast of Chinese ancestry in a contemporary setting. Despite these accolades, the movie faced significant backlash for occasionally using mixed actors in places where entirely ethnic Chinese actors were preferred. The movie received additional criticism for propagating stereotypes of East and Southeast Asians as well as failing to recognise Singapore’s multicultural population by casting actors from Malay and Indian ethnic groups as characters.

The movie Crazy Rich Asians had its world debut on August 7, 2018, at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, and Warner Bros. Pictures distributed it in theatres nationwide on August 15, 2018. The movie was a huge hit with audiences and critics, earning nearly $238 million on a $30 million budget to become the highest-grossing romantic comedy of the decade. It also garnered high marks for the cast’s acting, writing, and the production design. Numerous awards have been given to the movie, including Wu’s nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical and the Best Motion Picture – Musical or Musical nomination for the 76th Golden Globe Awards. It was nominated for Outstanding Motion Picture at the 50th NAACP Image Awards. Additionally, it garnered four nominations for the 24th Critics’ Choice Awards, winning one for Best Comedy, and four nominations for the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards, winning one for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
