Than Thanwa disheartened by CH 7; No contract or lakorns
He’s another rising star that many consider will have a bright future, but “Than Thanwa” reveals that Channel 7 has yet to approach him about any new projects. Same goes for his contract, whereas others have already made the step to extend their contract, he’s still clueless on his own contract. He pouts saying it’s something that Channel 7 and his personal manager “Ae Supachai” would have to negotiate. He also pleads for people not to compare his popularity with “Porshe Saran” stating that people have different styles.
Other channel 7 actors have already signed new contracts, how about you?
I have no knowledge of it. A contract negotiation is between the elders at channel 7 and P’Ae Supachai. How many years left in the contract, I’m not sure either. But to this day, I’m with channel 7. As for lakorn work, there has been no new offer, I have no idea either. I’ve only heard vaguely of it myself.
Baan Sai Thong?
I don’t know the title of the lakorn yet. I’m busy with school myself. I also have the short movie to promote.
Are you disheartened that you have such few lakorns released?
Of course there’s some of that. But I’m use to it now. Right now I’m having fun with school. Any free time I have, I return home to visit my parents.
You want to graduate first then solely focus on work?
Probably not up to the break. If the station gives me the opportunity to act in lakorns, I’ll gladly welcome it because I like acting and very fond of it too.
How long has it been since your last lakorn work?
4-5 months now, since ending “Saeb Salup Krua”
Abandoning lakorns for this long, are you afraid of people forgetting your face?
I have work in the provinces often. The feedback from the last lakorn was really good. No matter where I go there’s people constantly asking me when I’ll have my next lakorn. I’m use to it now.
Have you spoken to the elders about your work?
Yes I have. They tell me I’m still number one in their plans. I’m still waiting for that chance.
Has the elders given you reason as to why they haven’t been giving you lakorns?
They told me to wait for my opportunity. As for improving my acting skills, that’s my duty. I’m trying best to continually improve my skills.
What does P’Ae have to say about this?
P’Ae is concerned. He asks me about this and that when I see him. He’d ask me about my health, because it’s been a while since we’ve seen each other.
How do you feel when your friends from the industry like “Porshe Saran” outshine you?
I say that us people we’re not the same. It’s better not to make a comparison. We’re all different, different styles.
