RACHELLE ANN GO Meets THE ROCK!
After her brush with British royalty, Rachelle Ann Go found herself in the presence of Hollywood royalty this time!
The Filipino performer, who's currently starring as Eliza Schuyler in the West End production of Hamilton, had a backstage encounter with none other than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. "Oh man!!! He is so cool!!! Thank you for the lovely words," Rachelle gushed on Instagram after meeting the Jumanji and Skyscraper actor.
Despite previously working with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda in Moana, it was actually The Rock's first time to watch the award-winning musical. One of the world's biggest movie stars had high praise for Rachelle and the rest of the "crazy talented and passionate cast". "When you make something incredibly difficult look easy — that’s when you’ve mastered your craft," he wrote on Instagram.
..And I am not throwing away my shot. To close out our Thanksgiving, @laurenhashianofficial took me to see @hamiltonmusical here in London. She had seen it multiple times and this was my FIRST TIME (I know, but I’m a very busy dude;) seeing this extraordinary and iconoclastic piece of art. After the show, we went backstage to meet this crazy talented and passionate cast. I thanked them all for their killer performances, relentless hard work and discipline it takes to become as masterful as they are. When you make something incredibly difficult look easy — that’s when you’ve mastered your craft. Big shout to my brother Lin Manuel Miranda for creating this whole thing and for inspiring me on yet another level. And to the HAMILTON cast members worldwide, THANK YOU for sharing your passions and above all else/ I’m scrappy and hungry and I am not throwing away my shot. Ever. Love y’all and thank ya for being so cool and gracious 🤟🏾 #HAMILTON #London #ThanksgivingDay
