Golding is a Malaysian actor best known for his roles in Crazy Rich Asians, A simple favor, and gentlemen. Recently he landed the lead role in the upcoming GI Joe original film Snake-eyes.
the GI Joe film series began in 2009 with the release of GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra and was followed by his sequel GI Joe: Retaliation in 2013. After both films received a poor critical reception, the franchise took a hiatus. Now, GI Joe is being restarted with Snake-eyes because it delves into the history of one of the most popular members of the GI Joe team. Snake Eyes was portrayed by Ray Park in the first two GI Joe cinema. However, a younger actor was needed for his origin story, which led to Golding taking on the role. Golding’s take on Snake Eyes will be very different from the previous films, as it will take place before he was silenced and joined the GI Joe team.
Golding took to Instagram to share a video showing how he trained for a major Snake-eyes’ sword fight scene.

Golding’s sword fighting skills are certainly impressive, and exemplify the intense training he had to undergo to take on the role of Snake Eyes. Martial arts will feature prominently in the film as it will follow Snake Eyes training under the Japanese ninja clan, Arashikage. The martial arts talent on set, as Golding pointed out, is impressive, with stuntman and practitioner Pencak Silat Iko Uwais as the Hard Master, as well as Shaolin Kung Fu trainee Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow. Snake-eyes should be heavy on Ninjutsu and other martial arts actions. With his current talent and Golding’s extensive training, the action can make Snake Eyes’ story and Arashikage’s roster very realistic.
Anticipation is high as Snake-eyes’ the first is looming on the horizon. The film has suffered delays due to the coronavirus pandemic and will now be released almost two years after its initially scheduled premiere. Meanwhile, the GI Joe the franchise has been on hiatus since 2013, which makes this movie very important to revive it. How the film plays out remains to be seen, but for now Golding’s role as Snake Eyes is definitely gaining attention. Trailers and promotional images have consistently highlighted his martial arts skills and intensity, as has this new behind-the-scenes video. As Snake-eyesAs the premiere draws closer, Golding’s skill and dedication bodes well for his reception.
