Ananda Matthew Everingham is a Lao-Australian actor who made it big in the Thai film industry. You may recognize him from his role in the 2004 Asia-wide film phenomenon "Shutter". He was born in Thailand on 31 May 1982 and attended school in Bangkok and Australia.
If you have seen the 1983 NBC Telly movie "Love Is Forever" about an Australian photojournalist who swam the great Mekong River to rescue the Lao woman he loves --here he is, the fruit of an eternal love between a man and a woman. It was in 1977 when America ruthlessly bombed Laos just for the heck of it.

Ananda recently starred in 4 movies this year including the controversial "Me...Myself" about a man who had amnesia and thought he was gay -- or something like that. The movie created a stir in the gay community claiming that the movie gives misleading notions about being gay and didn't give justice to gay life in "reality". --yeah whatever.
Ananda has become one of our region's superstars -- he'll do more movies in the future that will go beyond the borders of Southeast Asia.
