Sue Thies (Pavita)

Sue joins us as Pavita in the featurette, Righteous. She grew up in a small town in northeast Thailand, about 15 miles from Cambodian border.  Her interest in acting was sparked as a young girl, when she met Dy Saveth, a popular Cambodian actress who came to Thailand as a refugee. Sue was active in her school theater, both as an actor and as a director. After graduating from high school, she studied dressmaking and fashion design in Bangkok.  She then moved to the U.S., and earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from UNC-CH.  Years later, her interest in acting has returned again after her two sons became involved in acting.  Sue started out working as a background and featured extra in many big budget film productions.  

Sue has made more significant contributions, as a costumer and earned supporting roles in numerous indie films as an actress.  She has also appeared in industrial, print, and commercial for both local and national projects.  

With the love of acting and the need to improve, Sue continues to work hard at her craft by studies Meisner technique at Ward Acting Studio and studies American English accent at Pronounced Success. 

She lives in Mebane, North Carolina, with her husband and two sons.
