POWER RANGER UNMASKED
Six days a week, for nine months a year, the 21-year-old would wake at 4:30 a.m. and drive an hour from her West Hollywood apartment to the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers set in Valencia. Filming would begin at 6:30 and wrap up 12 hours later. She'd get home at 7:30 and hit the sack within an hour.
After wrestling with this grueling routine for two years, Trang left the top rated after-school TV show last November to escape being enslaved to the Pushup Pop set and launch a feature film career. "I thought it was time to move on and take advantage of my popularity" says Trang.
She has plenty of notoriety to exploit. Crowds of 40,000 turned out to see her and the other rangers, as they traveled the country on a charity fund-raising tour last summer. And during a recent photo-shoot at a Malibu elementary school, Trang was mobbed by the fresh-faced offspring of Hollywood's biggest stars.
Thanks to this thriving audience base, Trang has found herself in the enviable position of being offered numerous projects. She's currently committed to two feature films, one NBC TV movie and a series. She'll play the lead in both -- Cyberstrike, an action adventure, and The Adventures of Tracie Z. PAGE 2
