The highly anticipated Hollywood film Crazy Rich Asians makes its debut in Philippine cinemas today and surely Filipino audiences will be on the lookout for Kris Aquino’s cameo in the film as Princess Intan.
In multiple interviews and replies to her social media posts, Kris Aquino has given clues on how much of her will audiences see in the film and yesterday during the advance screening by 99.5 PLAY FM, we were able to see for ourselves how much exposure Kris got in the Hollywood film. Here are our observations:
1. Kris Aquino looked AMAZING
True to the teaser photos that Kris has posted on her Instagram, the Philippine Queen of All Media looked regal and refined in the yellow Michael Cinco gown during her scene with Constance Wu. Her skin looked like porcelain and she was glowing all throughout her scene.
Ito na po: Here’s an exclusive first-look of my scene with @constancewu in the movie @crazyrichasians… My gown was created by our very own @michael5inco. 💛 Please watch for this PIVOTAL scene when the movie opens in Philippine cinemas on August 22, 2018. (picture courtesy of @wbpictures Head Office). P.S. please pray w/ me that i get my medical clearance so i can proudly represent the 🇵🇭 during the red carpet walk in the Hollywood premiere on Tuesday, August 7? Extending my deepest gratitude to @kevinkwanbooks for recommending me to play this once in a lifetime role. #lovelovelove
2. Kris’ camera exposure is shorter than what we expected
From the frame where Kris is introduced as Princess Intan up until her last, we could only count on our fingers the times that we had a full look at her face given that the focus would not just be on her but most of the time on Constance Wu. Kris’ voice is clear yet soft and dainty when she delivers her lines, just as what is expected of a Princess.
3. Princess Intan solidifies one of the main cast’s character development story
Kris plays a pivotal role in the movie as it brings one of the lead cast’s character development into full circle. Her less than 5-minute exposure in the film meant so much to the story and the journey of one of the lead cast’s characters.
Overall, Kris portrayed Princess Intan perfectly and by doing so, represented the Philippines very well on the big screens of Hollywood.
Crazy Rich Asians is now showing in cinemas worldwide.
