Seeking: Vietnamese Speaking Actor (mid to late 30s).
MINH: Male Lead, Mid to late 30s. He is Vietnamese and a charismatic dreamer who is inspired to create the ultimate pho recipe. He sees this as a way to understand his late mother. He sees himself as an artist experimenting with different ingredients. He likes to reverse engineer a recipe to understand why a good aroma makes one feel bliss. But in the real world, most see him as an unassertive loser. When he’s not in the kitchen, he moonlights as a cab driver to save enough money to one day have his own restaurant.
Ability to speak in both English and Vietnamese is REQUIRED.
