While growing up in an expat community in Dungun, Malaysia, Golding used to tell his mother off whenever she tried to teach him Malay. Since people knew they spoke English, what was the reason for him to learn Malay? Golding wanted to blend in with his friends. “But then, when I went back as an adult to Malaysia, I was kind of embarrassed that I wasn’t able to speak Malay,” he said.

Golding, 33 has an Iban mother and an English father and he has spent his whole life navigating two cultures but feeling as if he does not fully belong to either one. To him, he grew up “never quite understanding a sense of home.” Was home Malaysia, where he was born or England where he moved to at the age of eight?  Following Crazy Rich Asians, the rom-com blockbuster that propelled him to fame, Golding received a script for Monsoon, where he connected instantly with its sensitive exploration of a gay British Vietnamese man’s search for identity.

Golding plays Kit, a refugee who fled to England when he was six to escape the aftermath of the Vietnamese war in Lilting director Hong Khaou’s lyrical new drama. Many years later, he returns to Ho Chi Minh City, weighed down by grief to scatter his parents’ ashes. Kit feels like an outsider in his homeland which changed so much that he does not recognise it. /TISG
