As any Crazy Rich Asians fanatic (e.g. all of us at Preview HQ) would know, Goh Peik Lin is the extravagantly generous best friend of the bestselling novel's reluctant leading lady, Rachel Chu. And for its film adaptation, Asian-American rapper and TV personality Awkwafina is stepping into her shoes!
Daughter to a Chinese father and a South Korean mother, Awkwafina was born Nora Lum in New York City and is a rising star in a ton of fields: she's a comedian, talk show host, lyricist, and now actress.
With her searingly sharp humor and overall cool-girl vibe, it'd be beyond interesting to watch Nora portray the over enthusiastic, shopaholic Peik Lin. We can't wait to catch her on the silver screen!
Now that's yet another Crazy Rich Asian cast member officially revealed. Who could be next?
