It is difficult to imagine this beauty playing Tra Long – the Dutch daughter in Mat Biec.
In 2019, the movie Mat Biec became a “fever” on the big screen, adapted from the famous novel by Nguyen Nhat Anh. Thanks to the “cool hand” of director Victor Vu, Mat Biec achieved great success with revenue exceeding 100 billion VND. In addition, the film’s cast of characters is also widely discussed, from the infatuated Ngan to the Dutch “blue-eyed girl”.
However, the character that makes the audience feel the most in the film is Tra Long – the daughter of the Netherlands. When growing up, Tra Long knew Ngan, but Ngan always saw the shadow of Holland in Tra Long. Although she loved Ngan, Tra Long still suffered the first pain of her life when she was not reciprocated by Ngan. This role was performed naturally, attracted by young star Khanh Van, but was almost played by another actress.
The process of selecting actors for Mat Biec had many difficulties. There are even actors who initially auditioned for this role, but ended up getting another role. In the case of Tra Long, it is Truc Anh.
Truc Anh’s first choice is not the Netherlands
Truc Anh shared in the behind-the-scenes video of Mat Biec: “I initially participated in the casting for the role of Tra Long. But then director Victor Vu gave me another chance to try out the role of Holland. At that time, I accepted the role. Going out to the Netherlands is really my favorite role.”
With the controversial Dutch role, Truc Anh has affirmed that he can empathize with the character. In addition, having big, round eyes is also an advantage for the 9X actress to be chosen to play the lead role for Mat Biec.
Truc Anh revealed that he once went to casting for the role of Tra Long
Truc Anh went to casting a supporting role but “hit” the main role, so the role of Tra Long later belonged to actress Khanh Van. If Truc Anh has a similarity with Holland, in an interview, Khanh Van frankly said that she did not like this character. In addition, Victor Vu also revealed that when initially casting for the role of Tra Long, no one envisioned Khanh Van as the character. “In Khanh Van there is purity and an interesting choice,” said the director.
The success of Mat Biec has opened up more opportunities for Khanh Van herself. However, after 3 years, the actress still has not had any more impressive roles like Tra Long in the past. On the other hand, Khanh Van scored points with the audience when participating in the program “Stars Enter the Five”, as well as playing many popular MVs.
