Jirantanin “Guzjung” Pitakporntrakul was born in Bangkok, Thailand as the only child to a Thai mother and a Thai/Chinese father. Her mother and father divorced before she was born and her mother and aunt raised her.
Her childhood dream was to become an actress and she spent countless hours acting out characters in front of a mirror before she was 10 years old. When she was 12, she won her first role in a small Thai horror film.
Her first big role in Western film came as the female lead in “Elephant White”, starring Kevin Bacon and Djimon Hounsou released in 2011 and produced by Millennium Films. She went on to star opposite Mira Sorvino and Dermot Mulroney in “Trade of Innocents” (2012)
