Priyamvada Krishnan chose the Summer of 2019 to walk into the hearts of Malayalis. Her expressive eyes and delectable smile, perfectly garnishing her stellar performance from her debut movie,Thottappan, was a sight to see. She flawlessly conveyed an array of emotions through Sara Koch, a character that touched a million hearts. She even won the Kerala State Award’s Special Jury Mention for best actress. In fact, she has a nomination for Best Debutant (Female) at the 2019 SIIMA awards. The Miss Reina Intercontinental-India 2019 title won by her is just another feat to her long list of achievements.
Thrissur is home to numerous talents, and now Priyamvada Krishnan has secured her spot on the list. When asked about why she wanted to become an actor, her answer intrigued me;
“I wanted to experience a lot of things. And I realised, being an actor would give me the opportunity to live a thousand lives in this one lifetime.”
Being an outsider in the film industry, Priyamvada was not without her share of doubts and inhibitions. But she strongly believes that hard work, consistency and passion will lead the way to her dreams, a motto her parents remind her of, often. She also draws inspiration from other actors who have made it into the industry with sheer passion and hard work.
Priyamvada’s strong screen presence and her ability to capture emotions with ease earned her a potent character like ‘Sara Koch’, a huge win for a debutant.
“Becoming Sarah Koch was a huge learning experience for me. First of all, it’s my debut role and also Sarah Koch is the complete opposite of Priyamvada. She has inspired me to be strong no matter what life throws at you,” she says.
Besides her passion for acting, this Ladki Beautiful also has a secret habit of writing poems and songs which she prefers to keep to herself. As COVID loomed into our lives, little miss multi-talented turned this into an opportunity to channelise her energy into doing something creative. Priyamvada discovered her love for self-portrait photography. Since then, she has created several mind-blowing concepts with the same, all of which adorns her artistic Instagram feed.
