Cornelio Sunny

He is a half Mexican-Indonesian descendant and was born in the cultural city of Indonesia, Surakarta. He left the country when he was really young to study in Toronto, Canada. After the death of his father, he grew up in a hostel. He loved films and acting since he was involved in a school play as a child, but his love for films became real when at his early 19 he worked as a recruiter with Sterling Life Sciences, a company based in Toronto, Canada. There he met some friends who helped him getting inside a private acting theater class. In 2008, he returned to Indonesia; at first it was for his cousin sister’s wedding but then he fell in love with the country. He decided to stay and pursue his acting and film career in Indonesia. For him, films are made to entertain people regardless of moral or political perspectives and values involved. Based on that and the personal challenge, he makes a decision to work as an actor for a film. He believes in playing more diverse roles and tries not to repeat the same characters he played before, and so far he enjoys the diversities. He once played as a gay male prostitute in the film The Sun, The Moon & The Hurricane and a shape shifting dog in the film Another Trip to the Moon. He also plays as the main lead of an action silat film of Indonesia entitled Tiga – Alif, Lam, Mim. He has experiences working for international productions in Japanese film Taksu/Yokudo and the series Halfworlds by HBO Asia.
