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. Her acting and pairing with co-star Nadech Kugimiya captured so many fans across the country where the two are now the most popular "koo jin" 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 P'Tue and signing a contract with channel 3, Yaya motivated herself to learn the language. She had a special teacher to tutor her at home until she became fluent. Until today, she still remains to be the darling and beloved heartthrob of the Thai industry. Yaya has the reputation of an adorable lead actress who is very prim and proper and never has scandalous news, therefore she is considered to be a good role model. Furthermore her perseverance to simultaneously work and finish her BA at Thailand's #1 top University, Chulalongkorn 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.
