Acclaimed actress and DramaFever favorite Bae Doona makes her English film debut starring alongside Tom Hanks and Halle Berry in Cloud Atlas. How well do you know this world star? If you love Korean film, you may have seen her award-winning performance in 2002's Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. If you're a monster movie fan, you've probably seen her in the international hit The Host.
Bae also played lead roles in the Japanese films Linda, Linda, Linda, directed by Nobuhiro Yamashita, and master director Koreeda Hirokazu’s Air Doll. For the latter, she was honored in 2010 as Best Actress at the Japanese Academy Awards.
Already famous as a model in the Korean fashion industry, Bae made her screen debut in the film “Ring,” and you can watch her right here on DramaFever in How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor. Now let's take a look at her latest and most high-profile role(s) in the epic new film Cloud Atlas.
Based on the beloved novel and set over the course of 500 years in several countries (even other planets!), Cloud Atlas is unique in almost every way. Like Hanks and Berry, Bae Doona plays multiple characters in the film, a typically daunting challenge for this amazingly talented and adventurous actress.
