    Though Ananda Everingham now resides in Thailand and is considered as a Thai citizen, but he is half Laotian and Australian. I think his family is from the Luang Prabang region.

    were u looking for thai influenced laotians [i might word this incorrectly, but i mean they are producing/acting for thai entertainment] or stars that only performed in laos?

    the 2 previously listed are popular in thailand, but i believe there are movies and lakorns made with lao people, however i doubt it's recognized by anyone here unless they are in laos because i don't think it gets broadcasted to people in the states, but then again, i can be wrong.

    I read it somewhere that his parents were seperated by the Laotian government in the 70s. If I remember correctly, his dad (John Everingham) was the journalist who brought his wife to Thailand by swimming across Mekong. Their story was actually made a movie called "Love is Forever"

    "Based on true events, Michael Landon portrays real-life journalist John Everingham who, while working in Laos in 1977, is accused of espionage by the repressive Cambodian government. He is tortured and expelled from the Communist-controlled country, but he cannot forget Keo Sirisomphone (Moira Chen), the Laotian woman he loves.

    well some lao actors and actresses are in lao movies, but lao people don't have that great of an acting skill.
