Tiana was born in Vietnam and moved to the USA with her family when she was 5 years old. Since then her life has been a real adventure: actress, karate queen, film producer, director, mother and philanthropist – she’s done it all. Over the years, Tiana has stared in studio and indie feature films, TV Miniseries’, been on Charlene Hunter Gault’s Global Visions, and produced movies and plays.

Her award-winning 1995 film, From Hollywood to Hanoi, was the first American film shot in Vietnam after the end of the war. Tiana is currently working on the longest project of her career, The General and Me, which portrays the story of her privileged relationship with the one of the most important men in Vietnamese history: General Giap, a history teacher who made history by liberating his country from the French and US armies.
