Col stars in Thai TV drama!
Well not exactly star – actually mostly you only see the back of my head – but i’m there! And J co-starred in the race – spot the big flysurfer!
The show is a primetime Thai TV drama watched by a lot of people, and the stars are very well known. A few of Na’s friends called her and said ‘I saw your husband on TV!!’ Proud moments for Na, and of course very proud for me.
The plotline basically is the stars are at the beach for the weekend and 2 of the main stars learn kitesurfing and have a race together. Unfortunately the wind didn’t appear until right at the end, when only J and I could get out to race. So i couldn’t teach them, but we had great fun ‘acting’ kitesurfing. Notice in the real show the determination on their faces in the close-ups, and the complete lack of hair movement. Anything’s possible in a movie!
There’s a regular show following the stars, and the making of the drama. Skip to 10:20 to see the kitesurfing section. Spot Na in there too!
The main drama aired a few weeks after that – here’s our starring episode! Skip to 04:08 to see the back of my head again, and of course a Col-style double thumbs up, and the real race starts at 05:38.
Thanks to J for waiting around for ages to race with me, thanks to Na for being the translator as usual, and thanks to Tuey for being – well Tuey.
