Meet That Sounds Good's Elly Nguyen
In the Thai road-trip romance That Sounds Good (เรา สองสาม คน, Rao Song Sam Khon), the driver played by Jay Montonn Jira has brief encounter with a young Vietnamese woman who's running an art gallery.
The bespectacled woman in a tight pink tank top has a very small role but the 1.68cm model and actress can't help but make a big impression with her 37-25-34 measurements.
She is Elly Tran Ha, credited as Elly Nguyen. She is also known as Elly Kim Hong (阮金紅) and is famous as a Vietnamese "net idol".
Half Vietnamese and half Chinese, the 23-year-old Elly was born in the U.S.A. but is among the new crop of Vietnamese returnees.
One of the behind-the-scenes videos for That Sounds Good (embedded below) features Elly. She's in the trailer, which features pretty much the extent of her appearance in the movie.
She's there to provide confusion for the other bespectacled young woman in the movie. Jay is talking about Elly, but the girl think he's talking about her. It's a minor bit of confusion that is spun into a bigger issue later on as the love triangle between driver Jay and his two young-lady passengers.
Jay is starring in Pop Star (ดวงอันตราย, Duang Antarai), which opened last week, as That Sounds Good fades from cinemas.
