With honey-colored eyes and luscious brown hair smoother than Thai silk, Damita Chan is not only a Southeast Asian bombshell but also an industrious and assertive woman with a dynamic attitude for life. Beauty, hospitality, and kindness are what describe Damita, a film and glamor sensation from Bangkok, Thailand. Fluent in English, Thai, Spanish, and conversational Italian and Mandarin Chinese, she's a cosmopolitan figure in Thai society that has influenced her surroundings for the better.
I had the pleasure of meeting Damita during my last trip to Southeast Asia and became enamored by her desire to mix business-savvy qualities while striking a pose for the camera. Last week, Le Prestige interviewed the pearly-white skinned beauty on her career, travels, and aspirations.
I'm really friendly, outgoing, down to earth. I believe in having an open-mind while being cheerful, funny, playful, optimistic and frank. I love people who have kind hearts and are honest. I do not like to lie or to be lied to: I respect all people equally, A rule of thumb I live by is to never judge people by their appearances or wealth but by their souls. I am a firm believer in treating people the way you want to be treated.
I feel the following quote definitely defines me:
"Being authentic doesn't mean pretending to be perfect, it means expressing yourself with class and honesty."
I love to get to know new places, arts, music, movies, people, food and desserts. Traveling is my passion, and always will be.
2) Why did you become interested in the modeling industry?
I was asked to go for castings several times while I was living abroad and when I was in Thailand, but I never gave myself the chance until I moved back to Bangkok almost 2 years ago. I finally gave myself the opportunity and I started to love it.
I've been to too many places in this world! Some of these include the United States, South America, the Caribbean, and many parts of Europe: I think that I'm a very lucky person. My favorite place to live would be Italy, the whole country. I love the food, the fashion, the romantic places, and, of course, I think the guys there are very gorgeous!
4) In your opinion, what is unique about the Thai fashion industry?
Well, for Thai fashion, it will be obvious that what constitutes a trend is basically having 3-5 people dress similarly to you. Go to places like the Siam Square area in Bangkok and you will know what fashion means to Thais.
I'm currently working as the Assistant Manager in a 6 star hotel business in Bangkok, so i believe my goal is to be on top of the position while maintaining the heart for the film industry when time permits: I always go for it. Regardless, when you work full-time, you have no time to go to a casting: you are either too tired to go or don't have the time at all to go. Also, I don't really advertise myself as a fashion model or film-type: I try to keep a low-profile. It's really only those close to me that knew about my experience, until now!
6) Any advice you'd like to give other aspiring models/artists/fashionistas?
To me, whatever you do, just do your best so you won't regret it later. Never take anyone for granted. Just stay still, be who you really are and never, ever change because of what somebody else says.
