Birthday: December 14, 1973 (Sagittarius)
Born In: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Thuy Trang was a Vietnamese-born American actress who was best recognized for playing Trini Kwan, the Yellow Ranger on the TV series ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.’ Born in Saigon, South Vietnam, to a South Vietnamese army (ARVN) soldier, Trang and her family were forced to leave their homeland when she was two. They secretly boarded a cargo ship for Hong Kong along with hundreds of other victimized Southern Vietnamese people with the ultimate aim of reaching USA. Trang and her family resided in a Hong Kong detention camp and eventually reached California in 1980 where she studied at Banning High School. She initially planned to pursue a career in engineering, but a twist of fate led her to change her plans and become an actress instead. In September 2001, Trang died in a car accident at the young age of 27. An episode titled "Circuit Unsure" of ‘Power Rangers Time Force’ (9th season of the Power Rangers franchise) was dedicated to her memory.
