Apart from the numerous Thai celebrities who hold high degrees in education, there are also many sons and daughters of the rich entering show business.
Yet, many of them keep a low profile, leaving fans surprised when they discover their idols’ connections to prominent families.
曾因出演泰國戲劇《名門紳士》的男星James Ma當藝人多年從未談過家世，直到他進行兵疫的體檢照流出，粉絲驚訝他的姓氏竟是泰國富豪Assarasakorn引爆熱議，他才出面坦承他的確是億萬富翁Smit Assarasakorn的親兒子。
Thai actor, James Ma, is one such celebrity. Known for his work in the “Gentlemen of Juthathep” series, Ma has never publicly mentioned his family or parents.
When his physical examination to join Thailand’s mandatory military service was suddenly leaked, however, fans came to realize that his last name is the same as billionaire Smit Assarasakorn.
Assarasakorn has a significant presence in Thailand, mainly in the jewelry and real estate industries, so James could be said to have been born with a golden spoon in the mouth.
After the trivia was revealed, fans were shocked to learn of the fact as James’ attitude is always modest and has always kept a low-profile.
In addition, he had not mentioned his family background in his years as a public figure, which eventually shows that he had a very good upbringing.
As one of the most popular actors in Thailand and a height of 183 centimeters, he is undeniably an attractive celebrity.
His first role as the male lead in “Gentlemen of Juthathep” saw his career pick up and in 2016, he began attracting even more attention with his performance in “When a Man Loves a Woman.”
There is, therefore, little wonder that he was named the “National boyfriend of Thailand.”
