FIVE REASONS TO ADMIRE HENRY GOLDING



The handsome man's name is Henry Ewan Golding. He is a Malaysian actor, TV Host, model, and now one of the A-List Asian heartthrobs in Hollywood. This gorgeous Malaysian hunk was born in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia on the 5th of February 1987 to an Iban mother named Margaret Likan, and an English father named Clive Golding. Golding's mother is from the Iban tribe, an indigenous group in Sarawak. The Iban tribe are well-known for their exotic beauty. No wonder Golding is so exotically gorgeous.

Three years after Golding was born, his family moved to Terengganu, Malaysia, and they lived there for five years. To my foreign readers, Terengganu is a state situated on the east coast of peninsular Malaysia. When Golding was eight years old,  his family moved to Surrey, England. At the age of 21, he returned to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to pursue his dreams in show business.

Before Golding became an actor, he was a TV Host and model. Golding began his career as a celebrity and public figure by hosting a travel show on Malaysian television. Golding made his debut as an actor after landing a small role in a 2009 Malaysian romantic comedy film, Pisau Cukur (Gold Digger). The film also stars Fazura, Maya Karin, and Aaron Aziz as the three leading characters.

In 2018, this gorgeous Malaysian hunk achieved his Hollywood stardom after playing Nick Young in an all-Asian romantic comedy film,  Crazy Rich Asians (CRA). CRA was a Hollywood blockbuster. The film made Golding a superstar in Hollywood, and the rest was history. Besides CRA, some of Golding's films are A Simple Favor (2018), Monsoon (2019), Last Chrismast (2019), The Gentlemen (2019), and Snake Eyes (2021). Next year, 2022, Golding will appear in Persuasion. This film is based on Jane Austen's novel, Persuasion. Oh wow... as a fan of Jane Austen and Henry Golding, I'm excited to watch this film.

As a fan and fellow Malaysian, I'm proud of Golding. But besides his successful films, I do believe that there are more reasons why Golding is such a heartthrob in Hollywood today. So for today's post, I would like to share with you guys the five reasons to admire Henry Golding. I believe these five reasons are also the reasons that make Golding an A-list Asian heartthrob in Hollywood. And the five reasons are...


#1 HE'S A VERSATILE AND CHARISMATIC ACTOR

Golding has an amazing acting talent and charisma to match with his exotic looks. He is versatile and can channel all kinds of roles. He also has a versatile look. With his versatile looks, Golding can also play different ethnicities other than Asian. Plus, his charisma makes him an outstanding actor. No wonder he's a heartthrob ^_^


#2 HE'S HARDWORKING

Talent is nothing without hard work. And Golding has proved it right. One of the reasons why Golding is very successful in Hollywood now is because of his hard work. Golding is a very hardworking actor. He always makes sure his performance improves in all of his projects. Golding also likes to learn new things. This point makes Golding a good role model to young people. 


#3 HE HAS A HEART OF GOLD

Not just his surname began with the word 'Gold'. Golding is also a man with a heart of gold. He is very generous, likes to do charities, and helps those who are in need. Golding also likes to inspire young people to be kind. He makes young people believe that being kind is cool. He is a great guy!


#4 HE'S HUMBLE

Actually,... I met Golding once when I was working as a retail associate at Uniqlo Malaysia in 2010. At that time, Golding was invited as a celebrity model for Uniqlo's Brand Launching Fashion Show. He seems nice, humble, friendly, and adorable. He smiled, shook hands, and showed his appreciation to us. We were happy. I believe Golding's humble personality makes him lovable to his fellow celebrity colleagues, filmmakers, directors, the media, and fans. Being humble is one of Golding's keys to success. 


#5 HE MAKES MALAYSIA STANDING IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD

When Golding made his Hollywood debut in 2018, he did not just put his name in Hollywood. But he also makes Malaysia standing in the eyes of the world with his awesome performances, clean image, good personality, X-Factor, charisma, and intelligence. Plus, this Malaysian hunk likes to mention his birthland's name in interviews. He also promotes Malaysian culture to Hollywood and makes his international fans interested to know about his birthland. Golding shows to the world that he is proud of his heritage. This also makes Malaysian people (including me) very proud of Golding. Thank you for making Malaysia standing in the eyes of the world, Henry Golding. We, Malaysians are grateful. We will always support Golding and wish him the best in his show business career. Insya-Allah with his full package as an actor, I believe Golding will be more successful in the future.


Ok, so these are the five reasons to admire Henry Golding. Before I end this post, I would like to ask my readers two simple questions...

1) Are you a fan of Henry Golding?

2) If yes, what are your opinions of him as an actor and role model to young people?

Ok, that's all for now. Thank you for reading this post. See you guys again soon. Take care.

XoXo,

  19. Henry Golding ni wajah hero melayu terakhir tau. Kacak macam pahlawan. Hahahaha. Akak suka lakonan dia. Macam relax but something. Macam mana nak explain pun tak tau. Hehe

    1) Are you a fan of Henry Golding?

    Sudah semestinya. ❤️

    2) If yes, what are your opinions of him as an actor and role model to young people?

    Akak ingat lagi dia bersuara tentang beberapa isu semasa di twitter dan Instagram. Ramai selebriti mengambil sikap berdiam diri. Tapi Henry Golding akan bersuara dan menasihatkan sama ada tidak memperbesarkan isu atau dia sendiri akan bg pendapat. Wise man kan?
