Rachelle Ann Go already has lots to be thankful for this 2017. 

But the last day of the year gave her yet another pleasant surprise as she met with one of her Hollywood girl crushes, Keira Knightley. 

The acclaimed English actress spent her New Year's eve watching the West End production of the Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical phenomenon "Hamilton."

"What a way to end the year," wrote Go, who plays Eliza Schuyler, wife of America's founding father Alexander Hamilton, in the musical, as she shared on Instagram a photo of her and Knightley. "I have to be honest...I freaked out."

Meeting Knightley is just one of the many good things that sprinkled Go's eventful year. This 2017, she was in tears when she got engaged and when she landed her dream "Hamilton" role.

The West End run began last month, and Go has been receiving mostly positive reviews.

She stars in the musical with another Filipina, Christine Allado, who plays Peggy, one of other Schuyler Sisters.
