The Lowdown On The Cast Of 'Crazy Rich Asians'
Author Kevin Kwan’s visit to the Philippines in August of this year was definitely, cliché as it sounds, one for the books…
From the general public arriving in droves to fall in line at his book launches…
To society’s well-heeled set fangirling over him...
By all indications, this country is crazy about the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy.
And finally, earlier this week, it was announced that the film adaptation of the first book in the series will be released in August 2018. More importantly, we got to see exclusive behind-the-scenes photos via Entertainment Weekly’s extensive feature on the film.

Entertainment Weekly also came out with a detailed online feature on each of the main characters and the actors portraying each of these roles. Of course we couldn't resist learning more about them so we just had to research some more. Here are some trivia we gathered on this decadent cast:
