It did catch us off-guard and we're quite proud of Kris Aquino for landing a role in a Hollywood production! This simple slideshow she posted of Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan's beloved books couldn't be more solid proof that filming the movie has finally taken off. The author himself even commented on Kris' photo op with the film's director Jon M. Chu (who also directed Now You See Me 2).
Based on the book of the same title, Crazy Rich Asians centers on a rich and eligible Asian bachelor who is quite the catch. The film boasts a stellar cast that includes Constance Woo, Michelle Yeoh, Gemma Chan, and Ken Jeong.
It all began with this photo of Kris sharing that she was flying out to "fulfill a dream" with Michael Cinco costumes in tow.
Next was this photo of her waiting for scheduled rehearsals in Singapore.
That was followed by meeting Constance Wu, who's best known for playing Jessica Huang in the ABC comedy series Fresh Off The Boat
...as well as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actress Gemma Chan.
Kris then shared a photo of her own character look before the cameras rolled.
And we can confirm that it was Filipino MUA Juan Sarte who helped create it. That's him, on the left.
The makeup master himself posted a clear shot of the finished look and location.
