Eddie Murphy Reunites with 'Golden Child' Co-Star Jasmin L. Reate 3 Decades Later at TIFF
Eddie Murphy reunited with his "Golden Child" co-star Jasmin Reate at the Toronto International Film Festival after years of not being seen together.
Jasmin Reate was a child star in Eddie Murphy's movie "Golden Child" back in 1986, but according to the actress, it's like nothing has changed decades later.
33 years after the release of their movie, Reate shares that Murphy is the same as how he was back then.

"He was just as kind as I remembered him when I was 6."
"The Golden Child"
In the film, Murphy played a detective named Chandler Jarrell, whose job was to save missing children. He was hired to save "The Golden Child," who was destined to save mankind.
Three decades later, Murphy smiled alongside Reate, who played "The Golden Child" in the movie. To date, it remains her one and only film role.
While Jasmine never starred in another film or TV series ever again, she didn't leave Hollywood. Reate now works as The Hollywood Reporter's executive director for events and is a regular at film festivals and premieres.
Murphy's Upcoming Projects
Now, Eddie has been promoting his latest film, "Dolemite Is My Name," with his latest stop being Toronto. In the movie, he plays comedian Rudy Ray More, who starred in several Blaxploitation movies in the '70s.

He is also set to reprise his role as Akeem on the sequel film "Coming 2 America." It follows the 1988 movie "Coming to America," where Murphy stars as an African prince who traveled to New York to escape an arranged marriage.
In its second installment, Murphy's character returns to New York after finding out he had a son there, hoping to fulfill his dying father's wish of making his son the crowned prince of their country.

Being the renowned actor that he is, it comes with no surprise that at 58 years old, Eddie Murphy is still as busy as he was three decades ago.
While a lot has changed since then, his humility and kindness remain the same, and his co-star Jasmin can vouch for that.
