America to be his base, he has been expanding his market into Asia, having worked as a lead actor both in China and Vietnam. In March 2011, Thai-Hoa performed in the Off-Broadway production of We Are..., for which he was given a thumbs-up by the New York Times for his "particularly lovely voice and physicality" and "nuanced delivery". In 2010, Thai-Hoa was invited to go back to Vietnam, the land of his ancestors, and join the prestigious cast of Pearls of the Far East by Cuong Ngo (2009 National Film Board (NFB) Award nominee for Best Canadian Short), a groundbreaking art-house movie in Vietnamese cinema. Thai-Hoa has since garnered legions of young fans, as he was seen by millions in the 2013 Vietnamese blockbuster and "wuxia" epic Lady Assassin 3D. His popularity in both Vietnam and the Vietnamese diaspora has increased tenfold since his recent portrayal of General Nhuan opposite Jennifer Lawrence and Peter Dinklage in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
