James Jirayu’s friends blame him for harassment from his fanclub
He became a superstar overnight, so the news also comes rushing in for “James Jirayu,” therefore we must ask James has his popularity made him harder to get a hold of?
It’s not hard to find me. I’m still at the lakorn set. I haven’t run off anywhere far.
Do you go into shops?
I haven’t had a chance to walk around. I’d want to go too. There are many things at this point I want to do.
Is it harder to conduct yourself around your friends at the University?
No, not that much. The friends I know, are the same ones. They told me I’m making things difficult for them though, because people keep going up to them asking about getting to know me. They criticize me for it.
With the overnight popularity you’ve gained, are you afraid of forgetting your roots?
I still have all the elders…whether it be P’Pik or other senior actors that are here to remind and teach me everyday to concentrate on my work. They attempt to make me not get infatuated with the things that passed. Nowadays, on the lakorn set, I’m still getting criticized everyday. Everyone still sees me as a kid.
How do you feel about the constant news that like to compare you to others?
Honestly, I’m just another kid who still wants the opportunity and a lot more time. Personally I see all of them as my idols.
We see that you’re getting a lot of endorsements. Half of them once belonged to Nadech
It’s not up to that extent.
Someone said you broke records
That would be rather up to P’Pik.
One time you had 9 magazine simultaneously
That’s up to P’Pik to work on my queue. My only responsibility is to work.
