The queen herself unveiled the stunning creation. Catriona’s statue is the only Filipino wax figure in Madame Tussauds Singapore. “Who's that girl? What a surreal moment to (FINALLY!) launch my very own wax figure at Madame TUssauds Singapore after 3 years! I'm so honored and flattered to be the only Filipino wax figure here in MT Singapore!” she shared.

“When I say I’ve been waiting for this launch a long time, I really mean it. It was back in 2019 when the news came that I would be honored with a wax figure at Madame Tussauds and two and a half years later, we’re finally here so it means so much to me that you’re all here to join in moment with me,” she added.



The museum collaborated with the original gown’s designer Mak Tumang as well as Gray herself to work on the figure. Gray also revealed that the measurement session for the figure took several hours of taking photographs, filming videos and working with colorists.

Catriona’s wax figure can be viewed at Madame Tussauds Singapore beginning March 31. It is located in the museum’s TV and film zone, in an interactive display that allows visitors to attempt Catriona’s iconic lava walk. The figure will be on view until September 2022.
