New Zealand Actor Ego Mikitas Appears in Blockbuster Film, Bad Genius, directed by Nattawut Poonpiriya, 2017
Ego Mikitas’ successful acting career is based on his magnificent skills capturing the nuance of each and every line. He is a riveting presence on screen enveloping his character from within, and industry professionals and audiences are taking notice. Being part of the action-thriller film, Bad Genius is the second time Mikitas (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3658494/) has signed on to work with GDH 559 (Gross Domestic Happiness) a film company out of Thailand.
Mikitas’ first role with them was in a movie entitled, A Gift. The actor is thrilled to be working with award-winning Nattawut Poonpiriya (https://prolabs.imdb.com/name/nm5464371/?ref_=tt_fm_dirz) on Bad Genius, which has soared higher than the 100 million Baht box mark within the first week of screening. Additionally the distribution rights to the film have already been sold to all the Asian countries and Australia. Poonpiriya, from Thailand is a top-of-the-line filmmaker respected around the world. Poonpiriya has won numerous awards for his work and is considered the top moviemaker in Thailand.
Mikitas’ appearance (in the second half) of Bad Genius has drawn much kudos from appreciative audiences. Simply put he steals the show. The thespian put the action and thriller into overdrive as he explained crime has a price and consequence even for the younger generation who sometimes believe they are untouchable. His iconic line, “No more games, it is time to pay,” hits home.
In addition to his current repertoire the amiable actor is eager to appear in American films, especially those action-thrillers along the likes of James Bond and fantasy hero themes. Meanwhile, Bad Genius is a fine example of a major filmmaking company combining an incredible screenplay and director with gifted actors, such as Mikitas, raising the quality bar sky high. The prestigious film has been chosen to open the New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) on June 30, 2017. Quite an honor for Mikitas and all involved with the production. No doubt there will be more where that came from.
