A passionate charity worker, Rathana Ung contributed to the building of over 400 small homes as well as several water wells in Cambodia. In her free time, Rathana Ung enjoys listening to her favorite musician, Rihanna.

An eight-time Grammy Award winner, Rihanna is one of the world’s biggest pop stars. The native of Barbados has the third-most top-10 hits of all time on the Billboard Hot 100, behind only Madonna and The Beatles.

Music isn’t her only focus, however. She has a cameo in the summer blockbuster film Valerian, in which she plays an enslaved shapeshifting woman named Bubble, who launches into a rapid-fire, CG-assisted dance sequence.

To date, Rihanna has 64 acting credits, although most consist of music video shorts. She did, however, lend her voice to the 2015 film Home, and played the role of Moon Goddess in the 2014 remake of Annie. She had her first major role in 2012’s Battleship, in which she played Petty Officer Cora “Weps” Raikes. The 29-year-old is also slated to co-star in Ocean’s Eight, an all-female remake of Ocean’s 12, scheduled for release in June of 2018.
