Seventeen year old, Thai-Norwegian actress Yaya Urassaya Sperbund is twenty-six year old ‘Rome’ Patchada Nampan’s nang’ek in the upcoming weekend lakorn “Kulap Rai Nam (A Rose without Thorns)” on Ch3. The age gap is huge, 8-9 years. Crazy, kinda reminds me of “Dao Prasuk”, there was a huge age gap there too.
In the lakorn, Yaya and Ploy Chermarn are sisters from different mothers. Yaya is the innocent and younger sister Nucharee and Ploy Chermarn is the older conniving sister Nantawadee. Their paternal grandmother did not accept Nantawadee’s mother because she was a lady of the night. She wanted to adopt Nantawadee, but Nantawadee’s mother refused, thus Nantawadee grew up with people of the night (prostitutes, pimps, shady people, bar girls, you know those people).
When their father passed away, Nuch’s mother wanted to divide the inheritance with Nantawadee with one condition, Nantawadee must come live with her paternal grandmother and her half-sister Nuch. Oh how nice of her.
Nantawadee agreed and pretended to be a loving person with her new family. Inside, she hated her paternal grandmother and also Nuch’s mother dearly. She was determined to steal everything from Nuch and she was successful in stealing Nuch’s fiance. She married him.
Then Nadda (Rome) came into the scene and got close to Nuch. Nantawadee fumed with jealous when she learned that Nadda was wealthier, had a better job, and had a brighter future than her husband. Nantawadee looked for ways to make her husband divorce her so that she can pursue Nadda freely. When Nadda asked Nuch to marry him, Nantawadee looked for ways to break up their wedding, but it was unsuccessful. In her attempts to foil Nuch and Nadda’s wedding, her true despicable self unravels for all to see.
Because Nantawadee failed, she get a wedding scene between Nadda and Nuch. For Yaya, this scene was nerve-wrecking because she has never filmed anything like this before.
“I’m very nervous, I have never filmed anything like this before. The wedding scene today, P’Rome will kiss my cheeks, it’s very embarrassing. My face is still red. It’s still hot ka (laughs). When I found out there was a kissing scene, I was nervous, but it’s okay.”
For her co-star Rome, Yaya only had good things to say about him:”this is my first time working with P’Rome. He’s such a good-tempered person. He makes everyone on set laugh and have fun. When I have a scene with him, it’s fun. She is able to set the mood for me. On set, it’s very playful, it’s a lot fun. They love to tease me.”
According to Yaya, this lakorn will have everything-drama, comedy, and romance, so watch it when it airs.
Apparently this is Yaya’s first time wearing a wedding dress, they should have picked out a better looking/modern dress for her. That is just one ugly dress. It’s so old-school, not chic at all.
Lets hope this newbie can act.
