Nam Ron was born in Perlis and is a graduate of the National Arts Academy. Having collaborated with directors such as Yasmin Ahmad, Dain Said, Adman Salleh, James Lee, Tan Chui Mui, Woo Ming Jin and Amir Muhammad, he is also one of the most accomplished theatre and film actors in Malaysia today. While his acting talents make him one of the most sought-after actors of his generation, he is also a passionate filmmaker of immense promise. To date, he has made several short films, telemovies and one independently funded feature length digital movie entitled ‘Gadoh’. Nam Ron’s penchant for rich visual symbolism and deep concern for social politics makes him one of the most interesting new filmmaking voices in Malaysia. Currently, other than acting in a number of commercial and independent films helmed by some of the country’s best directors, he is writing his second feature film, which is expected to go into production in 2010.
