Linh Dan Pham

Linh Dan Pham (born 1974) is a French actress of Vietnamese descent. She was born in Saigon, South Vietnam, but moved with her family to France a year later just before the fall of Saigon to North Vietnamese and Viet Cong's forces and grew up in Paris. She has also lived in New York, The Hague, Singapore and Vietnam and now resides in London. She is known most for her role as an orphan of the Nguyen Dynasty adopted by a French plantation owner in the 1992 Oscar-winning French epic Indochine, starring alongside Catherine Deneuve. Pham received a César nomination for most promising actress for that performance. Despite appearing in a few other productions afterwards, Pham eventually decided to take a decade off from acting, focusing instead on her studies. She studied commerce and worked as a senior marketing manager in Vietnam after graduation. In 2000, she married Andrew Huntley, a British investment banker whom she had met while they were both living in Ho Chi Minh City. She began her return to film when she trained in acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.
