Richey Ormrawadee just graduated from Varee Chiangmai School last month but she already has a bright future ahead. She has accepted a place at one of Thailand’s top universities, Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, and she will be appearing in cinemas across Thailand as the lead actress in the new version of the classic Thai love story, Koo Gum (Ill Fated Lovers). In this movie she plays alongside Thai actor Nadech. The story follows the paths of a Japanese soldier and a young Thai women during the Second World War. The story has been produced as a movie and a television series on numerous occasions but various cinema critics are suggesting that this version will be the best so far.
The movie is sure to be a big hit and all the students and teachers from Varee Chiangmai School wish Richey Ormrawadee all the greatest success for the future!
