Before Thanh Huong, up to 2 female stars refused the opportunity to appear in Quynh Doll as Lan.
Quynh Doll is a famous TV series released in 2018. Exploiting a bold topic, the film once resonated strongly, but also created many controversies when it was delayed and labeled 18+. Perhaps because the content is quite sensitive, finding actors is not easy. Not only the role of Quynh or My Wolf, even the role of Lan was rejected by two famous female stars.
In the film, Lan is like an eldest sister in Thien Thai, always standing up to defend the right and defend Quynh against the villain My Wolf. Lan is also one of the most unfortunate characters in the film when, because of her family situation, she has to practice “trafficking and selling incense”. Later, when she returned to her salary, was about to get married, she revealed her past, was annulled, humiliated and went crazy. With this role, Thanh Huong had a big turning point in her career, becoming a name loved by many audiences.
Perhaps Thanh Huong will have to thank these two female stars when asking them to turn them down, but she has the opportunity to come to the role of Lan. Specifically, when preparing for the project, two actresses, Thuy Hang and Kieu Thanh, were invited to play the role of Lan. However, while Thuy Hang refused for personal reasons, Kieu Thanh did not want to repeat herself because in the past, she had taken on this type of role. And yes, in the early days of fame, Kieu Thanh once made a name thanks to a role with a profession and fate quite similar to Lan in the hit movie Front Is the Sky. “Many people have asked me if I regret that the role and the movie are successful. I don’t regret it” – Kieu Thanh once shared.
It can be seen that both Kieu Thanh and Thuy Hang have the same appearance as the description of the character Lan, the type of woman with a mature, sharp appearance. In terms of acting, both are also capable actors, having proven themselves through many different types of roles. If one of these two female stars accepts the role, perhaps the role of Lan will be equally excellent as Thanh Huong. However, unfortunately, they have ceded the opportunity to shine for others.
