BiographyEdit

Cris was born on July 5, 1980 in Bangkok, Thailand. Cris started her career in the entertainment industry at the age of 14 in advertising. She attended Ruamrudee International School and studied dance at Aree Dance Arts School in Bangkok, Thailand. Her parents decided to allow her to study abroad after the 1997 economic crisis. Subsequently, she graduated with a Bachelor's degree from Walnut Hill Performance Arts School in Boston and later went on to study advanced ballet at the California Institute of the Arts in the USA. After completing her college degree at CalArts, she returned to Bangkok, where she became a dance teacher at the International School Bangkok (ISB), and also worked as a DJ at Fat Radio.

She caught the eye of producer, Tom Yutthalerd, who convinced her to take a role in the romantic comedy movie "E-Tim tai nae " as "Ma Khin".
