Eindra Kyaw Zin (Burmese: အိန္ဒြာကျော်ဇင်; also spelt Eaindra Kyaw Zin) is a Myanmar Academy Award winning film actress and TV commercial model. Kyaw Zin, an amateur painter, is one of the most successful and recognized stars of the Burmese entertainment industry. She is best known for winning the 2004 Myanmar Academy Award as best actress in the film Flirtatious Sky (မျက်နှာများတဲ့ မိုးကောင်း​က​င်).[1]

Early life

Eindra Kyaw Zin was born to a well-to-do family in Yangon. She is a granddaughter of Bo Zeya, one of the Thirty Comrades that founded the modern Burmese Army, a niece of Dagon Taya, a well known writer, and a first cousin of singer Hayma Ne Win and singer and film star Yaza Ne Win. Kyaw Zin graduated from Yangon's elite Dagon 1 High School.

Career

In an interview with The Myanmar Times, Kyaw Zin admitted that film was not her initial choice of a career. Rather she envisioned herself as an independent artist or a doctor but had to reevaluate her options after getting sub-par grades in school. Her first foray into the entertainment industry came by way of a local beauty contest. She won the Miss Kokkine contest in 1998, and then went on to win Miss Christmas that same year. For the next two years she appeared in magazines and modeling shows. In 2000, she scored her big break as an actress in the film Pyaw Lai Kya Ya Aung (Let’s Have Great Fun) as the lead actress.[1]

Ironically, her film career in the early 2000s was handicapped by the top leading man of that day, Yaza Ne Win, her first cousin. In 2003, she spoke to Chiangmai-based Irrawaddy Magazine that "I have limited opportunities to act in current popular movies. In the movies, I can only perform sibling roles with my first cousin and we can not shoot love scenes." As it is leading men who score big at the box office in Burma, and being cast aside male superstars is an actress’s best chance at fame.[2]

Kyaw Zin won the 2004 Myanmar Academy Award, playing a villain role in the movie, Flirtatious Sky (မျက်နှာများတဲ့ မိုးကောင်း​က​င်). She continues to act in films and model for commercials. Although she is over 30, she is still a top model and actress in an industry full of young starlets.

Political views

Eindra Kyaw Zin is also known for her conspicuous patriotism. When the Thai film Bang Rajan—which featured scenes of Burma’s 18th century invasion of the Thai kingdom—was screened at a Pan-Asian film festival in France in early 2001, Eindra Kyaw Zin stormed out of the theater before the film’s end. Its director, Thanit Jitnukul, who took home the festival’s Best Director award, recounted meeting Eindra Kyaw Zin that day. "She was very friendly at first," Thanit said. "Then she asked me about my movie. I told her its name, and she refused to talk to me again."[2]

Social work

Eindra Kyaw Zin is socially involved with the community and various Burmese charities and is considered by her peers to be a good role model for young women in the country.[1]
