Henry Golding was a well-known travel show host in Europe and Asia before landing the lead role in the highly anticipated cinematic adaptation of "Crazy Rich Asians" (2018). Born in 1987 in England to a British father and a mother from the Iban tribe in Sarawak, Malaysia, Golding was raised in London. After deciding not to go to college, he moved to Singapore to pursue a career in television. Very quickly, Golding began booking gigs on travel shows, hosting for a number of networks, including ESPN, National Geographic, BBC, Fox, and NBC Universal. However, Golding's big break came when he was cast as Nick Young, the brash young heir in director Jon Chu's adaptation of Kevin Kwan's best-selling novel, "Crazy Rich Asians" (2017), alongside Constance Wu, Ken Jeong, and Michelle Yeoh, amongst others.
