The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare's Henry Golding: His Top 5 Roles (So Far!)

A honey-voiced heartthrob. A ninja antihero. Henry Golding’s done it all. As the release of his latest film is just around the corner, we reviewed his filmography for his best and most well-known characters. In no particular order, here are our picks for Golding’s top 5 roles!

1. Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

We couldn’t give one of the most beloved rom-coms of the past decade a miss. The blockbuster presented socioeconomic themes, gave us Constance Wu and Michelle Yeoh’s incredible performances alongside Golding, and made us all swoon at that one famous wedding scene. A future classic.

2. Snake Eyes (2021)

The latest film in the G.I. Joe franchise stars Golding as Snake Eyes, in his early years before becoming a Joe. The star delivered some high stakes action scenes that had us on the edge of our seats, all while never failing to look cool. 

3. The Gentlemen (2019)

Guy Ritchie’s unapologetic film has Golding star alongside other big names like Matthew McConaughey and Hugh Grant, and he matched other characters’ gruffness with his subtle charisma. The film’s charm was in its wit and dialogue, of which Golding played his part well.

4. Last Christmas (2019)

Last Christmas was there for us when we hadn’t had quite enough of our Henry Golding rom-com fix. The charming film then went on to rip out our hearts, naturally, when Golding gave comforting lines: “There’s no such thing as normal. You’re just being a human being, it’s hard.” The actor has us convinced this is the genre he truly shines the most in.

5. The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare (2024)

The upcoming film takes an unhinged telling of true events, taking place during the Second World War. Golding plays one of the “mad” members of the SOE that goes on a secret operation to help move the country towards victory. With Guy Ritchie at the wheel once again, cinemagoers have high hopes for another witty action flick. 

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is out on the 19th of April 2024.
