Acting careerEdit

Since the 1980s, Charoenpura has acted in numerous roles on Thai television and in films.

As an actress, she's best known for her role as 'Pring' in Khon Rerng Muang (Thai: คนเริงเมือง). She made the role her own so much so that she played 'Pring' twice in two different made-for-TV remakes consecutively in 1988 and 2002.[2] She came to international notice for her portrayal of the villainous Lady Srisudachan in the 2001 film, The Legend of Suriyothai, directed by Chatrichalerm Yukol, and released theatrically in the United States in 2003.

In 2010 Charoenpura appeared in the anthology horror film Die a Violent Death, alongside Akara Amarttayakul and Supaksorn Chaimongkol.[3]

Among her other movies are Memory and Meat Grinder.
