Disappearing from the small screen for a while but female nang’ek “Baifern Pimchanok” is finally back to seize the rating for Channel 7 in “Khon Pee Tee Ruk” as the role “Nammun” with close pra’ek “Porshe Saran” in the role “Perah” that makes the fans spazz.
How is the feedback for “Khon Pee Tee Ruk”?
It’s good. Also, it’s a comedy drama so it’s light hearted to watch. People say I play this role funny without being vain. I feel good that the comments are neutral. In the past, my roles has been more dramatic but the role “Nammun” is cartoonish. I honestly was stress out when I know I have to play this role because I didn’t think I could pull it off.
Like the scene of seeing a ghost and I have to be afraid of it, it becomes that I really got scared so the ghost becomes even more scarier. Later on, we change script a bit and we interpret how to act scared and make it funny and realistic at the same time. It makes me having to go learned more acting skill, so that we know how Nammun is. The result is that I am satisfy with it as viewers like it and I am happy that my fans are waiting to watch me since I’ve been gone for a while.
What is the most difficult thing in the drama?
It would have to be CG (Computer graphic) because I have little knowledge about this. I only encounter this when I played in “Arson Noy Nai Takien Kaew” but it has a different feel because I was a witch. Everything is basically CG. However, in this one I am human and Porshe is a ghost. So, there is a camera for each of us and then for the two of us. It is hard and challenging.
You get to meet with koojin (fantasy couple) like “Porshe Saran” too.
Yes. I costar with him in a drama that honors the king “Look Kon”. When I know we are meeting in “Khon Pee Tee Ruk”, I feel comfortable because we are close. I don’t get shy in whatever we act together. We understand each other looking in the eyes. Porshe and I are lucky that it seems we have chemistry together so it’s easy to act together.
I disappeared from the small screen for more than a year. My last one was “Look Mai Lak See”. It seems like I disappear for a long time because there was a delay in “Khon Pee Tee Ruk”. They have to change the script. I am also stuck with school and only accept one lakorn a year.
Did you notify the exec that your priority is your education?
I told them. When I signed the contract, it was with Khun Daeng and she told me she loves kids who focus on school. It makes me feel good because it’s a promised between me and my family that if I work in the industry I can’t fall behind school. I admit there was a time I felt down and irritable. I have too much work and I have to go to school too. I called my mom and told her I can’t do it anymore. My two hands that are trying to grab both work and school but can’t do it anymore. I am tired. People who doesn’t understand would think the reason I disappear is because I’m a falling nang’ek but I don’t take that to heart. I feel that I did the best already but this is all I can do.
At the end, I can’t let go of both. For me to play in one drama is not easy. To get to this point of my career is because of luck, isn’t it? It’s the same with school because I fought so hard for it and it’s only a bit more time that I am going to graduate.
Are you satisfy with your grade since you invest so much in it?
I don’t want to talk about it. I am on my fourth year now majoring in Faculty of Fine and Applied Art, concentrating in acting and directing at Srinakharinwirot University. All my grades are always 3.0 up for every term.
After graduating, will you accept a lot of drama?
I still have this personality of accepting one drama at a time because sometimes it takes all my 3-4 days per week. I don’t find drama as my life but it is sometime good that comes to my life. On another hand, I want to spend time with my family and friends. I want to be in movies and try something else. I don’t want to be a person who has the most work and the most famous. As long as I have a complete life, I am okay. After “Khon Pee Tee Ruk”, I don’t have any other drama but I will film two movie, “1995 Altermajib” for Mono and another for Workpoint. I don’t want to say the name yet but the blessing ceremony and opening day is soon.
It looks like you gradually have work and it’s not over the top.
Yes and I am satisfy and feel good about it being like this, so I will have time to do something else in my life. Honestly, I am in this industry for a long time but people get to know me from “A little thing call love” from 5 years ago. I am satisfy with my life in this industry. I didn’t think that I will get to play in movies and dramas but since I was able to play in “A little thing” and a lot of people really like it to the point going international; this is a lot of benefit for my life already.
Are you satisfy with your fame now?
Coming to this point, I am very happy already. Everything surpass my dream. Even now, I am still confuse about it.
How do you look at your future in the entertainment industry?
I can’t look into my future yet because I never look for that far. But if you ask do I know where my happiness lies? Now, I know that I like acting and I feel lucky getting to stand where I like, have time with my family and everything is complete.
So, my future is living with what makes me happy. I don’t dream of anything bigger than happiness that I have every day.
A little thing called love
Honestly, I do have gradually but when I start feeling this is Mr. Right but not more than 3 months later, he’s not. There will be circumstances where I feel like, I don’t want him. The most recent one I talked to is someone outside of the entertainment. I still talk to him but not as much. He doesn’t seems to have anything bad but do I have any confident? I don’t know yet.
Does he feels courteous talking to you?
Most of the people that came to talk to me don’t feel courteous because my personality is someone playful but I don’t like men who are playful. Most of the men see that since I’m playful they would act the same back because they want me to see that we’re the same which is not how I want it. I will tell them why don’t they talk nicely? Even I’m confuse about myself which is probably why I don’t have any true one.
What about the men in the industry?
There are some too but I am a decisive person so it’s hard. If they’re men from the industry I would know how their personality are like.
Like Porshe Saran?
I know Porshe before we both signed contract with Channel 7.
But people cheer for you two to become real.
If that is true then the world will explode because we’re both stubborn. We play too rough than being sweet like how relationships are. I confirmed that this koojin will never become real. I admit he’s handsome, charming, cute and has good personality but some people who becomes friend would know each other’s personality that it’s hard to become more than friends.
Even if she is not serious with romance life, she admits she does want a boyfriend.
People that are close to me would know I like to fantasize. Porshe would always tell me I’m crazy. I want a prince but will I ever meet one in this lifetime (Laugh). My ideal man is someone who is gentle and polite, nice, romantic, charming and handsome like a prince from the novels.
What do your family think about your love life?
They never prohibit or scold me. My mom knows everything and who court me. But my mom doesn’t get involve now and just tell me to tell her when I am sure.
At the end, she defines love as
I define love as someone who makes me excited every day. Someone who stimulate and becomes my inspiration. I want to do new things every day. If there is any man who can make me feel that way, I can say I will marry him. But I haven’t met anyone who can wake me up, more like they want to put me to sleep.
The real her is a person who lives simply and sometimes too simple that she doesn’t feels it’s suitable for an actress. Baifern opens that,
At that time I really don’t know how a celebrity is suppose to do. As I stay in here longer, I understand that it really depend on what you want. Being an actress is just like an occupation. If I have to think that being an actress is like this and that is going to be exhausting for me. So, I just think that this is just like another occupation that I have to do my best to bring happiness to viewers. I admit that I like being an actress and I am happy every time receiving a new role, but I am not familiar to shows or events. I am not use to moments that people think, oh this is a celebrity. I am just a normal celebrity that I become just like an ordinary person.
But there are news that you are demanding, arrogant and hard to reach.
Sometimes, just because I don’t smile, talkative or playful doesn’t mean I am too confident but it’s because I lack confidence. I don’t know who to smile to, and if I smile too much, am I faking it? Those are what I think in my mind. But I reaffirmed that I never fall into the spotlight and fame. I am still the same person who has responsibility as an actress, as a student, a daughter to my parents, and a friend to my friends.
The word celebrity or fame isn’t everything in life. I even think that I am not suitable to be a celebrity but since I advance to become an actress, I dare say that I will try to improve myself. As for people saying I am not pretty and suitable to be a nang’ek, I’m okay with it. I can’t stop their thinking.
Have you ever been annoy?
No, because my character isn’t a pretty one. Someone has even tease me that I am an ugly nang’ek. I happily admit to it because that’s how I am. I am a woman who doesn’t read magazine, watch fashion and do like most women do.
