Lea Salonga is truly in her element as she flew to New York for the 71st Tony Awards—she has become a nominee, an awardee, and now a presenter. We just need her to host and then she’s done it full circle.
We felt her excitement and energy when she officially announced that she would be presenting. Now we check out her series of selfies during rehearsals, and we look forward to seeing more taken backstage. But guess which selfie got my attention? And all of you, Star Wars fans, would agree with me.
Lea caught up with Mark Hamill and posted a selfie with the caption, “And here it is!!! @HamillHimself, thank you for being gracious and sweet. #TonyAwards2017.”
If there are two Jasmines in one photo, then prepare yourself with two Kims. Lea takes a selfie with Filipino-American Eva Maria Noblezada. She plays Kim in Miss Saigon on Broadway. Did you catch her performance at the awards show? Stunning!
