Vithaya Pansringarm http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3307918/

Vithaya was born in Bangkok, Thailand. Although he started studying accounting at a Thai university, his passion was for the arts. He went to New York City, changing his major and graduating as a graphic designer in 1985. He moved back to Bangkok in 1987.

His acting career started when he was discovered by Australian cinema photographer Wade Muller who invited him to act in his short film. Wade later recommended Vithaya to the casting director of a Hollywood production shooting in Thailand thus making his international debut in film in 2009. Then director Tom Waller asked Vithaya to lead in the Thai film “Mindfulness and Murder” for which he was nominated for best actor and for best screenwriter at the Thailand National Film Awards 2012.

After roles in several international productions shot in Thailand Vithaya was cast in the leading role of police lieutenant “Chang” aka “The Angel of Vengeance” in “Only God Forgives “, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, co-starring with Ryan Gosling and Kristen Scott Thomas which world premiered in competition at the Cannes Film Festival 2013. Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura discovered him in this film and invited him to appear in “Lupin the Third” as General Narong.

Vithaya Pansringarm just won Best Actor at the 17th Shanghai International Film Festival 2014 for his lead role in “The Last Executioner” (directed by Tom Waller) as the rock ‘n roll musician who became the last Thai to execute prisoners by machine gun.

Vithaya is an active environmentalist and member of the Executive Committee of the Wild Animal Rescue Foundation of Thailand (WARF). He is a martial artist holding a fifth degree black belt (Go Dan) in Kendo.
