(Thailand, 1942). He is one of the most famous film directors in Thailand and is undoubtedly one of the most representative figures in Asian cinema. The son of his Royal Highness Prince Anusorn and Mom Ubon Yukol, he is one of the most distinguished members of the Thai royal family. He studied at Geelong Grammar School in Australia and later went to UCLA in Los Angeles where he did his PhD in Geology. From a very early age he was surrounded by films as his parents were pioneers in Thai cinema. His father made his first film, Lavo Motion, in 1938, four years before the prince was born. Chatri Chalerm Yukol began to work as a cameraman on several films by his father and other Thai directors before making his debut as a director in series made for television where he worked as a producer and scriptwriter. The first feature film he made was Out of the Dark followed by Doctor Karn which won him the Best Thai Director's Prize. One of the most important Thai actors, Sorapong Chatri, appeared for the first time in this film. Since then Prince Chatri Chalerm Yukol has directed more than twelve films and has won several prizes at international festivals. His latest film is the huge historical epic fresco The Legend of Suriyothai
