VietNamNet – Recently, many overseas Vietnamese actors have been returning to Vietnam to take roles. How have they been received?


Recently, names such as Johnny Tri Nguyen, Dustin Nguyen, Helen Thanh Dao, and Nguyen Van Long have appeared in local newspapers. They are new faces in the national cinema industry.


Johnny Tri Nguyen, a professional cascadeur in Hollywood, is perhaps the “noisiest” case. Nguyen’s voice appears continuously in the media, together with his first film in Vietnam, Hon Truong Ba Da Hang Thit (Truong Ba’s soul in the butcher’s body).


As Tri Nguyen revealed, his main target in returning to Vietnam was to produce his own film, Dong Mau Anh Hung (Hero’s Blood), which will be based on the Vietnam-France war in 1930. It will be produced as a Hollywood action film.


Tri Nguyen said that another actor, Dustin Nguyen, will also be in Dong Mau Anh Hung. Dustin Nguyen is the son of actor Xuan Phat and dancer My Le, who were famous in HCM City in the 1970s. Dustin Nguyen has been working as a director for 20 years. The two are both expected to become domestic stars.


Model/actress Helen Thanh Dao is another artist performing in domestic films. But unlike Tri Nguyen and Dustin Nguyen, Thanh Dao does not have any acting experience.


Fortunately, just a few months after returning to Vietnam, she received two important roles from local film producers. According to the predictions of directors, Thanh Dao will soon be a movie star in Vietnam.


Tri Nguyen, Dustin Nguyen, and Thanh Dao are the most recent overseas Vietnamese actors to return to Vietnam. A few years ago, Vietnamese-Norwegian model Ngo Thanh Van returned home. She soon became a queen on local catwalks, and a famous movie and music star. In 2004, Van took a role in an Asia MTV Television serial film. Van will also take a leading role in Tri Nguyen’s film Dong Mau Anh Hung.


Domestic cinema is also attracting other overseas Vietnamese actors, such as Nguyen Van Phuong, Trizzi Phương Trinh, Miss Vietnam in Australia, Duy Thanh Lap, and others.


According to experts, Vietnam cinema lacks performers. Overseas Vietnamese actors promise to solve the problem. They earn faith from local directors with their professionalism and international knowledge. They also do well in scenes involving driving or martial arts, which are weaknesses of local actors.


Now, many Vietnamese private film companies are planning to invite overseas Vietnamese actors to participate in their projects.

    Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
