Taipei, May 25 (CNA) “I am Taiwanese, and I hope to bring my acting career back
home someday,” said Harry Lu (呂晉宇), a Taiwanese actor based in Vietnam during an interview with CNA in Hanoi.
Lu, 23, was raised in Vietnam, and has been working as an actor while running his own business in Ho Chi Minh City.
After graduating from RMIT University in Vietnam with a degree in marketing and working as a photo model, Lu plunged headfirst into the entertainment industry without any prior experience at the urging of his friends.
Lu’s big break came when he was selected as the male lead for the 2014 film “Than Tuon” (Idol), a love story of a pair of aspiring actors hoping to gain fame.
His captivating good looks and acting skills earned him six 2014 Golden Kite Prize nominations, and his starring roles in two other movies garnered two more Golden Kite Prize nominations this year. [FULL STORY]
