3 words to describe your personality?
Crazy, peaceful and musical.
What in your personal life has influenced you to choose your career?
I was approached by someone in high school who said I could be a model. I thought, ‘Me, a model?’ I was 15 at that time, my Mother even asked, if I was sure she was being genuine and telling me the truth. My Mother accompanied me when I went to the meeting; I’ve been modelling ever since then. I took it step by step modelling and studying for a few years before I shot my 1st campaign for Boyy Bag. My parents at the time were very strict about my studies; in Thai culture you’re encouraged to graduate before you can leave the country. I needed to finish my education before I was allowed to travel internationally for work.
Which role do you prefer, being a model or actress?
I like and enjoy being both.
What was the driving force that you got you where you are today?
My heart; being true, it drives me to be me and recognize the good people around me.
What made you take the role of Lynn in Bad Genius?
Lynn was a wonderful, interesting and complicated character, I never saw the full script during my audition and was only allowed to read 3 scenes; 3 amazing scenes. I worked for a long time on the intricate traits of Lynn’s personality with my acting coach writing down what defines her character: where she went to school, who her friends were, her favorite things; her entire world.
