Van is placed higher than some of Hollywood's biggest names, including Australian actress Margot Robbie (45th) and American actress Dakota Fanning (62th).

Van's rising popularity is due to her recent appearance in "The Old Guard", starring alongside Oscar-winner Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Matthias Schoenaerts and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The film, premiered on July 10, focuses on a pack of immortal mercenaries, who've secretly protected humanity for centuries, forced into battle after their extraordinary abilities are exposed. Van made a brief appearance in the film, playing the role of an immortal warrior named Quynh.

During a panel discussion on the 25th anniversary of U.S.-Vietnam relations on Thursday where she appeared as a distinguished guest, Van said she is working with an American director to produce a movie about Vietnamese superheroes for possible release next year.

Ngo Thanh Van, aka Veronica Ngo, is a Vietnamese actress, singer and model. Her Vietnamese action film "Hai Phuong" (Furie), which she produced and starred in, is the highest-grossing domestic film of all time.

Prior to "The Old Guard," she also appeared in four other Hollywood projects - "Da 5 Bloods" in June, "Bright" and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" in 2017, and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny" in 2016.
