- When did you first come to Japan?:
- Reason for coming to Japan:
- I have been an actress in Thailand for 10 years and recently moved to Tokyo for work. I have been interested in the Japanese entertainment industry since I was young as my stepdad is Japanese and I learned a lot about the culture from him over the years. I love how Japanese comedies and prank shows are able to make audiences laugh so hard all the time! Here in Tokyo, my goal is to challenge myself to become successful within the next few years. This is my birthday wish this year as I turn 26 next month! Wish me luck!
