Vietnamese movie star to appear in U.S. film starring Will S

HANOI, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- Vietnamese movie star and music producer Ngo Thanh Van, known as Veronica Ngo in English, plays the role of a killer named Tien in a U.S. film starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton and Noomi Rapace.

Van arrived in Los Angeles late last year to begin filming her scenes in the 90-million U.S. dollar "Bright", a production directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis, who involved in the hits "End of Watch" in 2012, "Fury" in 2014 and "Suicide Squad" in 2016, Vietnam News Agency reported Thursday.

The fantasy thriller is about a policeman, played by American actor Smith, and a humanoid called Orc, played by Australian actor Edgerton, who work together to protect a magic wand from evil forces.

"Bright" is the second U.S. film in which Van has appeared. In 2015, she played one of the supporting roles in a sequel to the 2000 Hollywood blockbuster "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."

Van learned kungfu with experienced martial artists before filming her scenes in New Zealand and China. "I'm confident of my ability to work beside foreign colleagues," said the 39-year-old actress. Enditem
