BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Nasution was born in Jakarta, Indonesia on 1 June 1984.[1]

Beginning in junior high school, Nasution joined the national training camp for the Indonesian martial art pencak silat.[1] She later attended Swiss German University, majoring in information technology.[1]

In 2003, during her university studies, Nasution was offered a chance to become a runway model.[1] She accepted as she thought it would be an easy way to earn money, but soon discovered that she lacked the confidence to do it professionally; in a 2011 interview with The Jakarta Post she said her thighs were too big, making her body "defective" for modelling.[1]

Acting careerEdit

After retiring from modelling, Nasution was cast in several TV movies.[1] She was later cast in Ifa Isfansyah's 2011 movie Sang Penari (The Dancer) as the lead female character, Srintil,[1] after two casting sessions; when her first audition failed, she read the original novel by Ahmad Tohari and decided that she could not take no for an answer.[2] To prepare for the role, she spent time as a ronggeng in Banyumas, Central Java, practising dancing and learning the language spoken there; she also spent a period eating less to better portray a malnourished rural girl.[1]

As of January 2012, Nasution is playing in the TV series Laskar Pelangi – The Series (Rainbow Warriors – The Series), based on the novel by Andrea Hirata.[1] She is also writing an original screenplay about parallel lives in the 1940s and 2010s.[3]
