Born: May 30, 1985 in Kharkhorin, Övörkhangai, Mongolia
Khulan was a student in 2006 hoping to join the country's military and enroll in a military school when she was discovered by Guka Omarova, the casting agent for Mongol, while standing in a visa line at the Chinese embassy in Ulaanbaatar. Bodrov and Omarova had wanted to cast a Mongol woman as Genghis Khan's wife but with two weeks to go before filming they were uncertain about their choices. After meeting with her, Bodrov decided to take a risk on the non-professional actress and subsequently cast her in the role of Börte. Khulan served as assistant director on the 2009 Kazakh gangster film Lave (Kazakh: Лавэ) and the 2012 Kazakh films The Old Man (Kazakh: Шал) and Mech Pobedy (Меч Победы). She starred as Queen of the Oirats in the 2017 Kazakh television production The Kazakh Khanate.  She also portrayed an Scythian Warrior in a documentary for the Smithsonian Institution.
