Posted on

Star: Gemma Chan

Who She Plays: Astrid Leong-Teo, Nick’s stunning cousin who is the most adored fashionistas in Singapore, but her glamorous life isn’t exactly what it seems.
Who You’ve Seen Her Before: The British actress is one of the leads on AMC’s sci-fi series Humans, and appeared in major films such as Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them and Transformers: The Last Knight. She has two major movies coming out soon with powerful women at the center: Mary Queen of Scots and Captain Marvel.
The Moment We Fell in Love With Her: C’mon, Astrid telling her cheating husband Michael that she is done trying to hide her wealth because he’ll never be a man anyway drew raucous applause in our theater. 
Fun Fact: 

Star: Harry Shum Jr.
Who He Plays: Charlie Wu, Astrid’s mysterious former beau.
Where You’ve Seen Him Before: After rising to fame on Glee, where he showcased his serious dance skills, Shum played one-half of the fan-favorite couple “Malec” on Freeform’s Shadowhunters. (Oh, and he won Male Breakout Star in 2016’s TV Scoop Awards!)
The Moment We Fell in Love With Him: OK, so he’s technically only in one scene, and doesn’t have a single line of dialogue…but who needs words when he gives Astrid that knowing look from across the bar? All of our nerves felt that one.
Fun Fact: In the film’s original cut, Charlie appeared a bit more, with his scenes ending up on the cutting room floor…including a dance scene between exes Astrid and Charlie at the wedding.

What we put in the movie was great—they actually dance together—and it was so awesome, and Harry’s so charming and so lovable. But the problem was, it made Astrid feel like she was leaving Michael for Charlie, and we didn’t have enough room to expand on the idea,” Chu explained to EW. “We just had to stay focused. Ultimately it’s about her independence, so that scene was in there all the way until the very end. When we took it out, Astrid’s journey became stronger. It was about her, not about her finding love.”

Well, we just HAVE to get that sequel now, right?!

Who He Plays: Oliver, Nick’s scene-stealing cousin who describes himself as the “rainbow sheep” of the family.
Where You’ve Seen Him Before: Santos stars opposite America Ferrera on NBC’s beloved sitcom Superstore.
The Moment We Fell in Love With Him: Who wouldn’t want to have a fashion show with Oliver, especially he and Peik Lin are providing hilarious commentary (along with some really great fashion advice)?

Star: Chris Pang
Instagram Handle: @pangeerz
Who He Plays: Colin Khoo, Nick’s BFF whose upcoming wedding brings the couple to Singapore.
Where You’ve Seen Him Before: Pang appeared in I, Frankenstein, as well as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and the Netflix series Marco Polo.
The Moment We Fell in Love With Him: Anyone else experience some serious FOMO when Colin and Araminta took Nick and Rachel on a street food tour as soon as they landed…even picking them up from the airport with balloons? Friends, consider the bar raised. 
Fun Fact: The Aussie, who trained in martial arts, was actually selling phones to businesses before becoming an actor.

Star: Sonoya Mizuno
Instagram Handle: @sonoya
Who She Plays: Araminta Lee, Colin’s heiress fiancée.
Where You’ve Seen Her Before: Mizuno had roles in Ex Machina and La La Land, as well as Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast. She reteams with Emma Stone in Netflix’s upcoming miniseries Maniac.
The Moment We Fell in Love With Her: She was a delight throughout, but the moment the aisle at her wedding began to fill with water and she stepped onto it in silvery leggings, we couldn’t help but bow down (and also laugh, because how ridiculous). 
Fun Fact: Prior to her turn as Oscar Isaac‘s robot dance partner in Ex Machina, Mizuno was a professional ballet dancer.

Star: Jimmy O. Yang

Who He Plays: Billionaire playboy Bernard Tai, who is one of Colin’s groomsmen and  responsible for throwing one of the wildest bachelor parties in film history. 
Where You’ve Seen Him Before: Yang has been a regular on HBO’s Silicon Valley since season two. 
The Moment We Fell in Love With Him: Hm…not sure love is the right word here, but watching Bernard, who is often seen walking around with a “pimp cane,” shoot off a rocket launcher at the bachelor party was quite the memorable moment.
Fun Fact: The comedian initially wanted to read for Nick, but his managers show down the idea, telling him, “I don’t know how to tell you this, but they are actually looking for a good looking guy.” He then read for Colin, before landing the role of the oft-shirtless Bernard. “I was very happy about because it’s just a fun crazy role and I get to do so much with it,” he told Thrillist. 

Crazy Rich Asians is in theaters now.
