Who Plays Astrid in Crazy Rich Asians? You're About to See the Actress Everywhere

Rachel Chu may be the leading lady in Crazy Rich Asians, but Astrid Young Teo is clearly the film's It girl. From her impeccable style to her sophisticated attitude, she's the girl everyone wants to be best friends with. So, just who exactly is the actress behind the lovable socialite? Allow us to introduce you to Gemma Chan.

While the 35-year-old British actress is already gaining major recognition for her role as Astrid, this isn't her first big role. In addition to making guest appearances on shows like Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, and Fresh Meat, Chan has also appeared in a handful of blockbuster films like Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. You might recognise her for her small role as Madam Ya Zhou in the latter (if not, we've included a GIF of her scene below). Plus, she has plenty of roles lined up in the future!

Following her starring role in Crazy Rich Asians, Chan is set to star alongside Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan in Mary Queen of Scots later this year. She's also playing Minn-Erva in the highly anticipated Captain Marvel film. Not to mention, there's a good chance Crazy Rich Asians will get picked up for a sequel. Looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of Chan in the future.
