Lea Salonga played the role of Aunt Myrna on the Hollywood show Crazy Ex Girlfriend.

Filipina Broadway star Lea Salonga definitely stole the limelight in the series finale of the Hollywood show Crazy Ex Girlfriend.

The Tony award-winning theater actress impressed viewers of the show with her rendition of the love song "One Indescribable Instant."

Lea appeared as a guest on musical-comedy series to play the role of Aunt Myrna who serenaded guests in the wedding of her niece.

The finale episode titled "Paula Needs to Get Over Josh" was aired last Monday, April 18 (U.S. time). 

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend tells the story of Rebecca Bunch, a successful Manhattan-based lawyer, who left everything in order to follow her high school ex-boyfriend Josh Chan in South California and win his love back. Rachel Bloom plays the ex-gf while Filipino-American actor Vincent Rodriguez III is cast as the object of her affection.

The series made headlines both here and in the U.S. for being one of the first American drama series to feature a Filipino-American family. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has also been commended by members of the Asian community in the U.S. for breaking stereotypes on Asian men who are typically portrayed as nerds, emasculated, socially awkward, and unattractive on American entertainment.

The show's producer and episode director, Aline Brosh McKenna, said in an interview that their lead actor Vince became too excited upon hearing that Lea would be joining the cast.

She recalled, "Vincent Rodriguez, who plays Josh, was so excited when he found out that Lea Salonga was gonna be in the episode that he fainted."
The Fil-Am actor didn't waste any time and took photos with Lea on the set. Vince uploaded one of his selfies with Lea on Instagram with the caption: "One can never have enough selfies onset with @msleasalonga."
