Fab Five – Actor Edition

We are still working on posts for lakorn newbies, this time, we look at Thai actors, basic info about them, what lakorns they starred in, etc. Last week, I discussed five Thai actresses here.

The Actors

Nadech Kugimiya – 27 years old Nadech’s acting bio is quite similar to Yaya Urassaya’s because they’ve starred in 7 lakorns together. Again, Nadech’s popularity exploded after starring in Duang Jai Akkanee. part 2 of the lakorn series 4 Huajai Haeng Koon Kao. Game Rai Phaai Game Ruk in 2011, again with Yaya, was another success. Currently, Nadech is starring in in My Love From Another Star. This will be only the fifth time Nadech has paired with someone other than Yaya, so a lot of people welcomed his new pairing with Matt Peeranee in My Love From Another Star.

Mark Prin – 29 years old, has been an actor since 2010. He worked with Kimberley Voltemas on Punya Chon Kon Krua 2012 and that cemented them as a popular koojin couple who now have five lakorns together. Mark has worked with all the actresses in the fab five except Vill, and he was paired on Phope Ruk with Bella Ranee. He also worked with Yaya on 2017’s popular lakorn Kleun Cheewit (earlier he worked with Yaya in Tawan Deard).

Weir Sukollawat – 34 years, has been in lakorns since 2006. He’s garnered numerous acting awards, works well with co-stars, and is quite prolific. Weir is one of the top actors at Channel 7 and as such, he has worked with any number of actresses multiple times such as Dung Duang Haruetai (2008) with Kwan Usamanee, Min Peechaya in Pin Anong, and Mai Davika in Roy Lae Sanae Luang 2013.

Pope Thanawat is 36 years old, and compared to the previous actors on the list, he got a late start, since he has only been in lakorns since 2011. He garnered attention in the popular lakorn series Suparburoot Jutathep. Pope played the main lead in Khun Chai Pawornruj, part 2 of the series. He starred in Samee Tee Tra 2014, a remake of a well known lakorn. But Pope’s biggest success was in Bpoop Phaeh Saniwaat with Bella Ranee.

James Jirayu – 26 years old, was also part of the popular lakorn series Suparburoot Jutathep along with Pope. James played the main lead in Khun Chai Puttipat, part 3 of the series. Like Mark Prin, James has worked with all the Fab Five actresses except Vill. He worked with Yaya in 2015’s version of Neung Nai Suang. Game Sanaeha had him working with Taew.
