YUPARAJ TOASALEA

Lead role as AUN (Thai-Segment)

Born 2000 in Bangkok, by a Thai mother and an Italian father.

Yuparaj’s nickname is ‘Film’ – not by coincidence: the camera naturally falls in love with ‘Film’ as he bears the natural talent of creating true emotions within a moment.  

PhonY-director Steinmann was quoted: ”In a crucial daylight-ending scene, with 25 minutes left to execute, ‘Film’ as the main focus in an extensive two-page-scene showed his stunning talent.  As this scene was a crucial turning in the story, ‘Film’ brilliantly succeeded – with only little rehearsal!  This newcomer has a bright acting future ahead.  Let’s hope he grasps when chances come along”.

Born 1988 in Northeast Thailand.  

 

The massive though energetic character actor Banyong Phoonsab, aka ‘Otto’,

has only some few and featured roles on his belt, with PhonY being his first
