About

Yaya Urassaya Sperbund, the half Thai/Norwegian actress is the hottest breaking star at the moment. She entered the industry in 2008 but it wasn't until 2010 where she gained immense popularity and created a name for herself with her portrayal of the fearless, daring Jeed in Duang Jai Akkanee (4 Huajai Haeng Koon Kao). Her acting and pairing with co-star Nadech Kugimiya captured the hearts of so many fans across the country where the two are now the most popular "koo kwan" of this generation. Before, Yaya could only speak 30% of the Thai language because she attended international school since childhood where most of her friends were American. After being discovered by Pa Tue and signing a contract with Channel 3, Yaya motivated herself to learn the language until she was proficient. And along with the help of a special tutor, she became fluent.

Until today, she still remains to be the darling and beloved heartthrob of the Thai industry. Her popularity stems from various facts, one being that she is sweet, caring and down to earth to everyone she encounters whether it's her fans, producers, directors, co-stars, fashion designers etc. Everyone who has worked with her can vouch for her on being ethical and professional with her job, making her an easy person to work with.

Yaya has the reputation of an adorable lead actress who is very prim and proper and never has had scandalous news, therefore she is considered to be a good role model to all viewers. Furthermore, her perseverance to simultaneously work and finish her BA at Thailand's #1 top university, Chulalongkorn University, while maintaining at least a GPA of 3.3 has gained her the admiration of many people within the showbiz. She is well known as the angel of the entertainment industry as well as the Queen of Presenters with a total more than of 210 commercials, the highest figure in the history of Thai entertainment.
