Rachelle Ann Go is keeping the Pinoy Pride alive in the London staging of the immensely hit musical "Hamilton".
But while Rachelle is making headlines on her own for her amazing performances, she couldn't help but also fangirl when her favorite actresses watch her live on stage.
On December 31, Rachelle got a chance to meet Hollywood actress Keira Knightley at the end of the show.
She shared her delight at the wonderful surprise before the end of the year on Instagram.
She wrote: "What a way to end the year❤️ @hamiltonwestend with Keira Knightley in the crowd! I have to be honest...I freaked out #girlcrush"
On December 14, Rachelle also met Emma Stone when she watched their show.
Rachelle plays Eliza Schuyler, wife of Alexander Hamilton. The stage musical opened in London on December 21.
Along with Rachelle, another Filipina is also part of the cast. Christine Allado plays Eliza's sister, Peggy.
"Hamilton" is a musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda, an American with Puerto Rican descent. He used to date a Filipina and learned some Filipino slang from her.
Before Hamilton, Rachelle made strides in the international theater community when she landed the role of Gigi in the West End revival of Miss Saigon.
She then played Fantine in the 30th anniversary staging of Les Miserables.
Rachelle also played the role in front of Filipino audiences in the Asian tour of Les Miserables. The play opened in Manila on March 2016.
