The New Rising ActressThe young actress, Yaya Urassaya Sperbuen, started off in this entertainment industry as a model but was later then cast as a channel 3 actress and landed her first leading role in Kularb Rai Nam and then Duang Jai Akkanee. Other than this, she is a also a hot commodity in the different magazines out there. Chewit Tong Soo has caught up with the young actress to update her busy life schedule at the moment.
Yaya told Chewit Tong Soo magazine in a happy mood that she is the youngest out of her siblings. she has an older sister named Kat who is currently studying in England. Yaya says she is very close to her sister. Whenever she has problems, she will go to her sister for advice.
'My mom is a housewife. She will teach us the Thai culture and mannerism. As for my dad, heÕs like my hero because at the house, my mom is the most strict where as my dad he gives us a chance to explain ourselves when we get in trouble. Sometimes heÕs strict but not often. If you ask is my mom protective of me? SheÕs protective and concern about me since I was a kid. She still feels that way now. As for my dad, heÕs protective of me like any other dad would but when guys try to pursue me, he wonÕt get protective. When it comes to love, he letÕs me make the choice.'
'The reason why I chose to go into the Faculty of Liberal Arts at Chulalungkorn university, international division, is because I like learning the different languages ever since high school. Right now IÕm learning another language which is Thai and the way the culture goes. It helps me understand more how the Thais live their life and what not. IÕm working and going to school, I have to tell you that it s a bit hard. Sometimes I canÕt go to school because I have to work but the grades are okay and IÕm happy with it.'
4 Huajai Haeng Khun Khao PremiumWhat's the feedback? I heard that the feedback is good. IÕm very excited. My first lakorn, my character would be prim so when I become Jeed in ÔDuangjai Akkanee, IÕm very excited. I didnÕt know if people would like it or not because itÕs a turn over the role but now I know the outcome. ItÕs relieved. (laugh) I play fully so I want many people watch it.
The most difficult scene?
ItÕs the dance scene because I canÕt dance. Actually, before filming, the staff told me to take a course and there was a trainer came to train us on set too. We had to dance like hip hop or b-boy but itÕs difficult and funny. We had to do it and the trainer taught us, thereÕre steps but when itÕs really filmed, I forgot all steps and the song was very soft. In the scene, pÕNadech would mention the family and we challenged each other then we compete dancing. I danced because I wanted to win him but when I saw him dance, I was like 'ho! how could I win him, heÕs very good.' Normally, after filming, I would go to check at the monitor but that day I didnÕt dare to watch the monitor at all. I was embarrassed, very embarrassed but everyone said it was o.k.(smile)
The dance scene is even harder than the emotional scene
I think itÕs more difficult than the drama scene. ( without hesitation) Because when we are in the drama scene, other actors can build up our feeling. He can send the emotion to me. It makes the work easier but in the dance scene, I have to dance on my own (laugh) ItÕs hard. On acting, IÕve been fond of acting already before so thereÕs no problem for me.
Compare to the sweet and kiss scene, which one do you think is more difficult? I still think the dance scene is harder. (everyone laughs because she quickly response with her blushed face) ThereÕre a lot of sweet scenes, like the falling to the pool and we had to kiss underwater. Actually, we would use the camera angle in the beginning but itÕs difficult for the cameramen as they had to move underwater. Paajaew then told us to do the real kiss; just lips to lips but itÕs difficult because we would float to the surface so we had to help each other to press our bodies to be under the water. Actually, pÕNadech had to kiss me but when we shoot we need to meet each other halfway. ItÕs difficult. (her ears were getting red) Before shooting, he would apologize to me first. (How many times you brush your teeth before shooting?) (Yaya laugh) I brush after meals every time. (laugh) He does too, brush the teeth and wash his hands.
