Linh who has big, black eyes and plump and intelligent face, had her first role at the age of four. This was the second leading role in “Mother’s Heart” by famous director Nguyen Huu Phan.
Since then, Linh has played in many television and big-screen films, including “Exams”, “ANZ Disentangling Service”, “Story in Hoang Son”, “King Ly Cong Uan – the Road to Thang Long”, “Blood Letter”, etc. The little girl has tried her best to both study very well at school and play in various films. “I watched a short movie in which Linh played a rural girl who goes to a hospital in the city for an abortion with her father. This role requires acting skill because the character almost does not talk. I highly appreciate Linh’s acting. She got right inside her character,” comments Vuong Thuy, a trainee of a movie project funded by the Ford Foundation. Being attracted by new experience in different characters, Linh did not refuse any role, even characters that she did not like, including Thu in “Mother’s Soul.” Linh said that when she read the screenplay, she did not like Thu and did not understand this role but she still wanted to try. Surprisingly, this role brought the Best Actress award at the Dubai International Film Festival last December to the little girl. Before the festival, the movie was screened at ten universities in the US and Thu was highly praised for her acting skill. “I gave this role to Linh after casting several girls because she was quite suitable to this role. She is at the same age, the same figure with Thu. Linh did not act 100 percent perfectly as I desired but this is a difficult role. Thu is a character with different states of feeling. Linh is only 12 and her acting is too good for a little girl. I’m rather satisfied with her,” said director Nhue Giang.
The little actress in the real life. Linh had to try hard to get this success because at the age of 12, she had to play a mother. “I’ve never played mother-child games, so I did not know how to show my love to my ‘son’ in the film. I had to learn from my mother. I tried to remember how my mother treated me to act in the movie,” Linh said. Linh is a town girl but in “Mother’s Soul,” she became a poor girl who lives amid the Red River, who could work like an adult. Linh’s effort was highly praised by director Nhue Giang. “She loves acting and tried a lot. She had a firm will, not a 12-year-old girl. She is talented and she is a promising actress in the future,” the director commented.
