I think Yaya managed to shine on her own very well in Kleun Cheewit and even in NNS. She definitely has the talent and screen presence to do so but I feel that the problem is that her characters in her previous lakorns with Nadech have always been 2 dimensional with barely any depth or character development. Biggest example of that is GRGR which is one of my absolute fav lakorns of her and Nadech but if you watch it, you can see how much Nadech's character develops and changes in the story while Yaya's character stands still with no movements whatsoever. I honestly blame the script writers and director for this because no matter how talented Yaya is, she cant shine without a dynamic role that shows depth and character development throughout the story.From the sound of things, Yaya's lakorn with Act Art will open production before the one with James Ma since that one is scheduled for mid next year. It'll be a win win situation to have Nune and Yaya in the same series but heck I don't want Tik with any of them. At least with Nune, she's already such a skilled and established actress that she can manage to shine on her own without the help of a praek but the same cannot be said about Yaya. I'd rather watch Shakrit, Ken T, Oil or whoever within that generation over Tik who has completely lost his passion for acting.
For me personally I preferred Mark and Yaya chemistry too. I tried watching DJA and GRGR but could not finish it, even though it's slap-kiss. I don't know I just don't see the chemistry that NY FC are talking about. That aside I do like NY individually. But I will try to watch their new lakorns to see if I change my mind.
I'm probably the only one looking forward to Tik-Yaya lol.
