Just as how K-dramas have amassed a loyal international fanbase, Thai series are also starting to gain traction overseas, including here in the Philippines. If you’re in dire need of a new show to binge-watch, then you’ve probably had friends recommend you the Thai series called Girl From Nowhere.

The supernatural thriller revolves around a character named Nanno, impressively played by Thai actress Kitty Chicha Amatayakul.

If you’ve finished the series (it’s available for streaming on Netflix, FYI) already and can’t get enough of the 26-year-old actress, we did the Googling so you didn’t have to. Here are a few things to know about her:

She’s named after Hello Kitty.

Nope, ‘Kitty’ isn’t a nickname she just adopted, it’s really part of her birth name and it’s given to her by her dad. “Many people thought that I made it up,” Kitty shared in a Thai show called Loukgolf's English Room.

“When my mom was giving birth to me, my dad was actually in Japan,” she added. “And when he was flying back, he tried to pick up a gift. And he learned that, at that time, Hello Kitty was very popular. So he decided that maybe it might be a nice name for a girl.”

She’s into scriptwriting.

As you read on, you’ll start to realize that Kitty is multi-talented. Aside from being an actress, she also dabbles a bit in writing scripts.

She used to be part of a girl group.

Before officially pursuing a career in acting, Kitty was part of a five-piece Thai girl group called Kiss Me Five. Some of their songs include “One Last Chance” and “Sensitive”. But in the future, Kitty hopes to work on music again and release solo projects that’s a bit different from what she did with her former group.

A role she’d like to take on in the future is Joker.

If there’s anything to learn about her from her portrayal of Nanno in Girl Of Nowhere, it’s that Kitty doesn’t like to play it safe with her roles. In an interview with Lifestyle Asia, Kitty shares that, in the future, she’d love to portray the role of Joker. “I feel that it’s every actor’s dream role. It’s really amazing!”

Just a little fun fact, Kitty is Instagram mutual with the former One Direction member.

Kitty says Nanno is like the voice in her head.

In the same interview with Loukgolf's English Room, Kitty likens Nanno to ~that~ voice in everyone’s head. She shared, “She’s like everyone’s ego. She’s the one inside your mind who knows what’s wrong and what’s right. She’s like everyone’s dark side.”

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
