Actress Nhung Kate.

Nhung said she learned about the project three years ago when American director Oliver Stone contacted her manager in the U.S. after watching a movie featuring Nhung.

Getting an invitation to take part in a project, Nhung later learned it had been postponed, and was encouraged to improve her acting skills.

Several months ago, she got an invitation to join ‘The Continental’ cast. After filming some videos for casting, she was given the role of Yen.

The actress feels no pressure from playing action scenes since she has practiced martial arts in the last two years. Her boyfriend, actor Johny Tri Nguyen, has helped her improve her English, martial arts, and working with international crews.

Nhung, birth name Duong Hong Nhung, was born in northern Hai Phong City in 1989. She learned acting at Hanoi College of Art and has starred in many local movies and series. In 2016, she played the main role in ‘Co Hau Gai’ (The Housemaid), a thriller directed by Vietnamese-American filmmaker Derek Nguyen.

Apart from Nhung, four other stars will join ‘The Continental’, including Hubert Point-Du Jour, Jessica Allain, Mishel Prada, and Ben Robson.

‘The Continental’ will explore the origin behind the hotel-for-assassins, increasingly the centerpiece of the John Wick universe.

The ‘John Wick’ trilogy has grossed almost $600 million worldwide. The films have been scripted by Derek Kolstad and directed by Chad Stahelski. ‘John Wick: Chapter Four’ is currently shooting in Germany, France and Japan with American actor Keanu Reeves reprising his assassin character.
