“Kwan” Aussamanee Waitayanon has a reputation for scandals. Her image is off-putting to not only other celebrities, but also to famous lakorn director such as “Tor” Maruth Sarowarth. He admitted he was afraid when channel 7 demanded him to work with her in upcoming lakorn “Liem Rak”.
But thankfully not all books can be judge by its cover and to the director’s surprise, Kwan is not as bad as people think she is.
What’s this lakorn about?
“Liem Rak is based on a novel by “Thepita”. It’s about twins but the twins in Liem Rak are both good, the difference between them is their status which differs from each other like sky and dirt. One sister is raised like a princess, gentle and positive. Like a little bird in a golden cage. She’s kind of sickly too. At the same time the other twin sister is raised like a normal child and in poverty. She has to provide for herself. The older sister is “Tawun”, the younger sister is “Fah”. One lives in Chiengmai and one lives in Bangkok. The younger one in Bangkok is the one who has a life like a princess”
“The older sister in Chiengmai has to fight to survive and the drama begins when the they meet each other. When that happens, they start to wonder why they look alike, are they related? and why are we separated from each other and what happened? The curiosity pushes them to want to find out the truth and that’s the main plot of the story, it’s very fun to watch and will leave the viewers with great anticipation to want to see what happens next”
“Filming twins is not a problem. But it’s hard and takes a lot of time, back in the past you just can’t do it but now you can. You can film them hug each other, touching hands and walking past each other in the same frame. Although it’s difficult and very time consuming. It takes a tough and talented actor/actress to play this kind of role”
“I have to say that Nong Kwan Aussamanee worked really hard in this and I’m full of compliments for her. Before I started working with her I heard so many rumours about her and I was worried. Is she going to be the rebel type? But it turned out she proved herself to me and to the crew that she’s very hard working, she’s different to what they say she is in the gossip news. I have to admit she has great acting spirit”
