The International Movie Database (IMDb), the world’s prestigious online database of the global film, TV industry and celebrities, has recently named Vietnamese actress Ngo Thanh Van, also known as Veronica Ngo, among the 50 most popular celebrities in its weekly-updated STARmeter ranking.

The 36-year-old actress, who starred in the North America’s highest-grossing movie “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, came 41st on the list, surpassing many Hollywood stars such as Australian actress Margot Robbie, U.S. actress Bryce Dallas Howard and even the world’s highest-paid actress Jennifer Lawrence.

The Vietnamese actress has gained much attention and high evaluation from foreign media and international audiences after she seized the opportunity to show up in the Hollywood movies such as the blockbuster “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, Netflix’s action movie “Bright” and the Chinese-language “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny”.

The STARmeter ranking is determined by millions of IMDb users, based on their interest in the actors and their movie projects.

Previously, she shot to fame in local action movies including Dong Mau Anh Hung (The Rebel), Clash and Lua Phat (Once upon a Time in Vietnam).

Van, who grew up in a small town in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh, began her career as a film director and producer after more than 15 years working as a fashion model and pop singer.

Obviously, 2017 has been a fruitful year for the young actress as her second production named Co Ba Sai Gon (known in English as The Tailor) received thunderous applause from the public and the media at home and abroad. The Vietnamese movie was also introduced to foreign spectators at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) in South Korea’s Busan.
