Today is (according to Wikipedia) the birthday of Thai actor and martial artist Yanin “Jeeja” Vismitananda. She’s been in a bunch of action movies since her starring role in the 2008 movie Chocolate, where she played an autistic teen who teaches herself muay thai and gets into increasingly intense shenanigans while trying to pay for her mom’s cancer treatment.
It’s pretty great:
Anyway she does all her own stunts and is super cool and should be in all the movies. ALL OF THEM.
Happy birthday to Jeeja Yanin and happy Day Threading to you!
