Dwell in the Fantasy World with Mario Maurer’s latest Thai Movie
Who is your favourite Thai Actor in Thai Movie?
We all have our own favourite, but this one, this particular one, would definitely be on your list. He is versatile, undeniably handsome with his mixed-blood origin, he can sing, dance and acting as well. Most of all, he is the main actor for Thailand’s highest-grossing film of all time, Pee Mak. He is – Mario Maurer.
Born in 1988, Mario Maurer’s father is a German and his mother is a Thai Chinese. He was born with a handsome and smart-looking face. It doesn’t take long for the scouts to bring him into the Thai Movie showbiz industry, after his modelling career on the age of 16.
However, he doesn’t really like acting at first, as he was later convinced by director Chukiat Sakweerakul to take in the lead role of Tang in his debut Thai Movie – The Love of Siam, a Thailand romance movie back in 2007. Turns out, his acting is confirmed and his popularity raised like tsunami tides, sweeping several nominations and awards for Best Actor the following year.

Ever since then Mario has been actively participating in various Thai movie and drama series. It was not until Director Kongkiat Komesiri convinced Mario Maurer to take an adventure into a fantasy movies genre. He wants somebody to be playful for the role of Kaew, and Mario seems like a perfect fit in his latest movie on Khun Phaen Begins.
