Kris Aquino is not the only Filipina actress featured in “Crazy Rich Asians”

Kris Aquino invaded entertainment news websites when she became a part of the film adaptation of “Crazy Rich Asians” as Princess Intan.

However, Aquino is not the only Filipina talent that was featured on the said Hollywood flick because Junji Delfino, a Filipina jazz singer-actress currently based in Malaysia, has also snatched a role in the film.

Delfino played the maid of Astrid Leong-Teo who was played by British-Chinese actress Gemma Chan.

Even though her part was really small and barely got any screen time, Delfino is still proud of her participation in the movie.

She said that her family and relatives in Canada went to watch “Crazy Rich Asians” but weren’t able to catch a glimpse of her exposure.

That is why she took to Instagram to give a quick explanation.


“I warned you not to blink! If it helps jog your memory, I looked like this,” she captioned the photo of her wearing a maid’s outfit.

“The scene was in Astrid’s condo, just after she came home from shopping! It comes on somewhere between 15-20 minutes into the film,” she said.

But regardless of how much exposure she got, she was still included in the end credits of the film.

She even said in jest that she beat out Aquino in the credit placement because the closing credits of the cast of characters is listed in order of appearance.

Aside from Aquino and Delfino, Nico Santos, a Filipino-American comedian, who is already making a name for himself in Hollywood for starring in the comedy series “Superstore”, will also appear in the film.

Santos will have a bigger role compared to the other two Filipina actresses as he will be playing Oliver T’sien, the second cousin of Nick Young, the male lead of the movie.

“Crazy Rich Asians” tells the tale of a young woman who accompanies her boyfriend to Singapore for his best friend’s wedding, only to find out that her lover is filthy rich and is one of the most eligible bachelors in the country.

Constance Wu, Henry Golding, and Michelle Yeoh will lead the all-star ensemble.
