Golding happily shared the news on his Instagram account for his fans and followers last night with the caption that he felt honoured being part of the list with truly special people. He also thanked ‘momma’ @michelleyeoh_official for the quote.

Golding’s latest movie Last Christmas that features Emilia Clarke and Michelle Yeoh is due to hit cinemas on Nov 14.

The Malaysian actor is of English and Iban ancestry and he was born in Sarawak, East Malaysia.

After working as a hairdresser in London for a few years, he moved to Kuala Lumpur to pursue a career as a TV host before making his big break in acting.

In other news, Golding revealed a funny story about how he was very excited to work with the Matthew McConaughey in the upcoming action thriller The Gentlemen, in an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

For Golding he thought that he was going to be best friends with McConaughey, going for Sunday walks in the park, dinners and that their wives will be good friends, and that they will enjoy yogurt on Saturdays, he shared with Jimmy Fallon.
However, McConaughey was cold towards him the first time they met.
Golding found out later that the Interstellar actor usually goes into character.
