The movie We are 8 years later is attracting the attention of small screen audiences. Besides young actors like Ngoc Huyen, Hoang Ha, Quoc Anh, Tran Nghia, People’s Artist Trung Anh is considered an interesting highlight in the film. Because this is the first time the veteran actor appeared with a “disruptive” appearance and took on the role of a rich tycoon.
The unique appearance of the People’s Artist in “Us 8 years later”
People’s Artist Trung Anh was born in 1961, has been passionate about theater since he was 17 years old, and is one of the first class of actors at the Vietnam Drama Theater. In addition, the male artist also made a name for himself in the field of television dramas and was favored by the audience with the nickname “national father”. From the movie Come Home, My Child to Return Amidst Love, Loving the Sunny Day, the image of a gentle father who loves his children and always protects his family leaves a deep impression in the hearts of viewers.
Yet in Us 8 years later, People’s Artist Trung Anh plays Mr. Quang – chairman of a large corporation and biological father of Anh Duong (Hoang Ha). Finding his daughter after many years of abandonment, Mr. Quang always forced Duong to do what he wanted and break up with her poor boyfriend.
However, Duong did not recognize his father and refused his blood relationship.
Hoang Ha and People’s Artist Trung Anh have emotional dialogue scenes.
In the latest episode, when Duong criticized him, Mr. Quang told his son: “Life may not be what you see. There is always a truth behind the truth. At some point, you feel disappointed, you feel broken or if there is a time when you see that money can solve a lot of miserable problems, then remember me.”
Sharing about the new film, People’s Artist Trung Anh smiled and said that this is the rare time he takes on the role of a rich tycoon like Mr. Quang. Therefore, the actor decided to dye his hair white to refresh his image in the eyes of television audiences.
“I get a lot of questions about why I keep playing the ‘father’ role. Actually, at this age I can only play that kind of role. But instead of being a “national father” like in previous movies, in ‘Us 8 years later’ it will be a rich, cold, calculating father who abandoned his daughter. Mr. Quang will go through many ups and downs, even falling into extreme poverty. To make Mr. Quang different, I discussed with the director about dyeing his hair,” said People’s Artist Trung Anh.
People’s Artist Trung Anh plays the role of a wealthy father for the first time.
The male artist said that the character’s life will be summed up in the saying: “When we think we’ve lost everything, we have the most precious thing.” For People’s Artist Trung Anh, this role is a big challenge, but he likes to try and does not want to repeat himself. He focuses on building interiority to convey the character’s emotional layers to the audience.
“This change makes me feel more interesting,” the actor affirmed.
People’s Artist Trung Anh said that in real life he is not only an old father, but also a father who observes many fathers who are friends and neighbors, reads many books… That is his life’s capital for him to be able to express himself. plays many different father roles.
The male artist shared that when the movie Come Home was broadcast, his children also watched the movie. His daughter was jealous of the three daughters in the movie: “It seems like dad loves them more than he loves me.”
The People’s Artist expressed his desire to portray more roles with different motifs.
People’s Artist Trung Anh is nicknamed “Father of the Nation”.
When told that he was at the peak of his career, People’s Artist Trung Anh affirmed: “Actually, in art there is no peak. In my opinion, every artist or actor wants their next film to be better than the previous one, and their next work to be better than the previous one. Even though I received praise from many people and the press for this role, if I take it as my pinnacle, it is the beginning of my impending decline. In my life, I only hope to have good roles. Just that”.
The late People’s Artist Hoang Dung once commented that People’s Artist Trung Anh was successful in all fields, from drama, theater, cinema to television. He received the title of People’s Artist in 2019.
The simple life of People’s Artist Trung Anh.
In 2021, People’s Artist Trung Anh bid farewell to the Vietnam Drama Theater after 43 years of association. Although the male artist later became familiar and loved for his roles in television dramas, the People’s Artist confided that in him, his love for theater was always burning. People’s Artist Trung Anh is willing to accept roles if there is an invitation from the Theater’s leadership.
The actor is teaching at Hanoi University of Theater and Cinema and is in charge of the Drama Actor class K41A. Some of his students all made their mark on television while still in school such as: Thuy Duong (Battle of wits, Not afraid to marry, just one reason), Thanh Hue (Black special medicine)…
He said, if he wasn’t teaching or acting, he would just stay at home with his wife, read books, drink tea, watch football… in an apartment with a view of a green campus.
The “national father” believes that his greatest success is that his son and daughter are both obedient and hardworking. When they were both young, many directors invited them to act in movies with their father, but they both refused because they didn’t like acting. Currently, the artist’s two children are studying abroad.
