But what Bang Di remembers most about playing the role of Tu Mam is the “scar of life”. The actress confided: “Tu Mam is the character that gave Di a lifelong scar. It’s a real scar, everyone. During one scene, Di fell. I also didn’t think that fall would seriously injure my leg. This scar will make Di recall the time when she participated in Southern Forest Land and got this scar.”

Bang Di also shared the story of being scolded a lot by “acting advisor” Tran Thanh on set, thanks to which she was able to get the scenes she wanted. “Coming to the set, he still cursed. But thanks to that, I feel like I have to endure a little cursing so I can exploit my new acting style. In the role of Tu Mam this time, I hope everyone will see Bang Di’s different way of acting as a villain,” the actress confided.
