Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 14) — Months after her Hollywood acting debut, actress and former television host Kris Aquino reminisced about the beginnings of her journey in bagging a role in the hit film "Crazy Rich Asians."
Aquino posted her audition entry on Facebook, showing how she acted out iconic scenes as Eleanor Sung-Young, the male lead's mother as well as other characters associated with Sung-Young. Aquino was seen acting scenes twice, donning different outfits.
"on purpose, we held back on releasing the actual AUDITION material that was sent to the Hollywood casters of Crazy Rich Asians... so why now? because the time is right. i am okay in fact, comfortable sharing with you a special moment in my life," she explained.
In the end Aquino bagged the role of Malay Princess Intan, who appeared in what she describes as a pivotal moment in the movie for main character Rachel Chu.
"the lead star's REALIZATION of her self-worth, because she was an intelligent, accomplished, beautiful NYU professor- for that scene everything i believe in as a woman- was affirmed," Aquino said in her post.
"Crazy Rich Asians" premiered worldwide on August 22, 2018.
