Yes. You read that right, the “Queen of all Media” is getting a Hollywood role.
Kris Aquino has just landed a role in Crazy Rich Asians, and she is the first Filipina actress to star in the film.
Kris is set to work with international stars Contance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Sonoya Mizuno, and Michelle Yeoh. The film adaptation will work with an all Asian Cast.
“I am proof that in life doors will shut & there will be heartbreaking setbacks but FAITH in God’s plan will open new, unexpected doors. We just need to trust in His love, provision, restoration & perfect timing. Grace is unmerited; it’s God’s gift we humbly receive with a heart overflowing with gratitude,” Aquino said.
“Crazy Rich Asians” is a 2013 best-selling book by Kevin Kwan.
Just yesterday, Kris signed a deal with East West Artists in Los Angeles.
