|Model BB Minh Thuy|
Vietnamese model BB Minh Thuy has accepted an invitation from Hollywood director Michael Gleissner to take a leading role in an action film to be shot in the Philippines in November.
Gleissner first came across Thuy at a fashion show in Hong Kong five months ago. Impressed by what he saw, he gave her a small part in the short film Irre versi with Meiling Melancon and Estella Warren.
Thuy, who spent four months at the International Academy of Film and Television in the Philippines, will become the first young Vietnamese actress to play a leading role in a Hollywood film.
These days she divides her time between the Philippines and traveling all over Asia on assignment for Channel FTV and various fashion magazines.
