Tham Thuy Hang in Present Day

Thẩm Thúy Hằng's real name is Nguyễn Kim Phụng born in 1941 in Hải Phòng and grew up in An Giang, Vietnam. At the age of 16 she won Mỹ Vân's Film Company actor search contest and received the stage name Thẩm Thúy Hằng. She became among the top Asian stars in the 1960-70 and was a symbol of beauty. For her first role she starred in the movie "Người đẹp Bình Dương" in 1958. She then partook in multiple film projects and soon became a household name. Tham Thuy Hang held the record for starring in the most films of her time. Take a look her some of her photos below.









After many decades, where is the actress now and does her beauty still hold true? She's currently living with her husband, Nguyen Xuan Oanh in Saigon, Vietnam. Tham Thuy Hang has four sons, Nguyen Xuan Dung, Xuan Viet, Xuan Quoc, and Quoc Viet all successful in their life. She doesn't appear much in public, but still tries to attend charity event to help out at the best of her abilities. Below is a photo of the movie star (left) with musician Nguyen Van Dong and singer Thanh Tuyen. Time really does damage to one's appearance.

I was named after her. My mother said that she lived a tragic life and there is a reason why she looks like that. whether it was an attack on her on an illness she was still one of the most beautiful asian actresses that has ever lived. she will have a legacy. age did not do that to her appearence, someone or some illness has. although i was named after her i could never be as beautiful as she was.
