Phuwin Overwatch

Phuwin has proven his talent goes beyond just on-screen acting!

Best known for his roles in BL series such as Never Let Me Go and Fish Upon the Sky as well as other series like The Gifted: Graduation, Phuwin Tangsakyuen has established himself as a skilled actor, and even singer with his original song เพื่อเธอแค่หนึ่งเดียว (Living For You) from Never Let Me Go as well as covers of songs such as Ford Allan Asawasuebsakul’s อีกนิด (Come Closer). Most recently, he has expanded his range of talents into voice acting as the voice of Bua Niran Pruksamanee, or Lifeweaver, Overwatch 2’s latest support hero. The character speaks both English and Thai in-game and is the game’s first Thai character.

Being a support hero, Lifeweaver’s abilities focus on assisting the team rather than eliminating foes. For example, he can create a Petal Platform to move allies into desired positions or opponents into unfavorable ones and heal allies using his Healing Blossom. His ultimate ability is the Tree of Life, which gives healing to multiple teammates, as opposed to his Healing Blossom’s single-target nature.

 

Additionally, it was confirmed by Overwatch 2’s lead narrative designer, Gavin Jurgens-Fyhrie, that Lifeweaver is an openly pansexual character, making him the game’s first. A clip of Lifeweaver flirting with fellow Overwatch 2 support hero Baptiste has even gone viral after being uploaded onto Twitter by Overwatch 2 streamer Hoshi.

In terms of lore, the character has a history with the damage hero Symmetra, meeting her during his time enrolled at the Vishkar Architect Academy. He uses biolight, which is similar to Symmetra’s hard, incorporating plant life into his abilities. The character hails from the province of Chiang Mai and is a brilliant scientist and an activist. As he traveled the world, he saw the broken state it was in and resolved to use his skills to fix it, leading to his creation of the biolight as mentioned earlier, which has medical properties.

 

Are you excited to play as Lifeweaver in Overwatch 2 with Phuwin as the voice actor? The character will be released along with Overwatch 2’s fourth season on April 11, 2023!
