To continue our week of posts for lakorn newbies, I present to you some well known actresses. As a bonus, I’ll even add in info about them. I’ll also talk about what lakorns they starred in. Next week will be Thai actors turn.
BELLA RANEE – 29 years old, been an actress since 2011. Her top hits include Phope Ruk with Mark Prin, and Padiwarada. Bella’s successes have mostly been in historical lakorns, and the hugely popular lakorn 2018 hit, Bpoop Phaeh Saniwaat really cemented her stance as a top actress in Thailand.
Taew Natapohn – 30 years, has been in lakorns since 2006. She’s garnered numerous acting awards, along with a reputation for getting along well with co-stars. 2016’s Nakee was a big hit, Nueng Dao Fah Diew had Taew pairing with James Jirayu and Game Sanaeha is a favorite with international lakorn audiences.
Yaya Urassaya Sperbund is 26 years old, but has been in lakorns since 2008. Yaya’s frequent pairings with Nadech Kugimiya have made them a favorite couple and they’ve starred in 7 lakorns together already, with an 8th reunion already planned. It all started with lakorn series 4 Huajai Haeng Koon Kao, in which Yaya starred with Nadech in Duang Jai Akkanee. Game Rai Phaai Game Ruk in 2011, again with Nadech, was another success. Kleun Cheewit (2017) is very popular and she had great chemistry with Mark Prin.
Kimberley Anne Voltemas – 27 years old, was also part of the lakorn series 4 Huajai Haeng Koon Kao along with Yaya, and to this day, they are best friends. Her role in the series didn’t garner as much notice, but it was her first real role apart from a cameo, so I’m including the lakorn Thara’s Himalaya, part 1 of the series. Kimberley starred in 2013’s Rang Pratana with Nadech Kugimiya, but really is famous for pairing with Mark Prin, whom she became a koo-jin couple (couple people ship together) with. Piang Chai Kon Nee Mai Chai Poo Wised was another big hit for Kimberley.
Vill Wannarot is 30 years old, and is one of the more prolific actresses on the list. Vill’s first role in 2008’s Kaew Lorm Petch with Son Yuke was a hit, and she has continued to star in hits such as Sud Sai Pan (2013) with Toomtam Yuthana and Leh Nangfah. Vill has starred with a number of different actors, but look out for her roles pairing her with Son Yuke or Toomtam Yuthana.
