Ario Bayu is one of Indonesian talented actor who had successfully stolen Indonesian film lovers. This Javanese actor started his career as a model in Indonesian magazines like Esquire Indonesia Magazine. He also had played in several qualified films in Indonesia.

When he was a senior high school in New Zealand, Ario Bayu didn’t really like science or math, the interesting subjects for him were only drama and music. His dream to become an actor came true when he was selected from 4200 students Young Talented Shakespeare competition. This competition also brought him to United Kingdom to follow the workshop for 2 months, until he decided to become an actor in his homeland, Indonesia. He got his first role as a supporting actor in Bangsal 13 (Ward 13). In this film, he played with Indonesian Superwoman Luna Maya, and Indonesian Supermodel, Endhita.

After he played in Bangsal 13, the opportunity for him to act in many films was getting bigger and bigger. He played in Belahan Jiwa (Soulmate) with many Indonesian best actresses who got the Citra (the most prestigious trophy in Indonesian film or we can call it as ‘the Indonesian Oscar’) like Dian Sastrowardoyo, Marcella Zalianty, Dinna Olivia, Nirina Zubir and Rachel Maryam. He also palyed in Pesan dari Surga (Message From Heaven, with Luna Maya, Vino G Bastian, Rianti Cartwright, Lukman Sardi, Catherine Wilson and Indah Kalalo), Tarix Jabrix, In The Name of Love (with Vino G bastian, Acha Septriasa, Luna Maya, Christine Hakim, Roy Marten, Cok Simbara etc), and also as mature Lintang in Laskar Pelangi (Raibow Troops, with Ikranagara, Cut Mini, Lukman Sardi, Mathias Muchus, Tora Sudiro etc). But from all of his films, he still thinks that his best film is KALA. Trough that film, he could go to Korea to attend the BUSAN Film Festival and from 37 festivals in the world, KALA won in 5 festivals.

Ario feels that living in Jakarta is very complex, and complex word is the best word to describe him at this time. He has lived in Jakarta since 5 years ago, his dad, mom and sibling still live in New Zealand. From the age of 19, Ario has made a target for his life and it supposes to be reached at the age of 25. But his target is getting bigger and bigger. If he has enough money, he will go to Australia to continue his study about film industry. He is a natural thinker and also a dreamer. He can dream for 24 hours a day, but he said that live in Jakarta is so hard.

In the year of 2009, Ario’s career is getting brighter. Beside he plays in many films (Pintu Terlarang, Macabre, Merah putih etc.), he also gets some awards that can support and raise his name in Indonesian film industry such as The Best Supporting Actor Nominee in Indonesian Movie Awards 2009 for the film Laskar Pelangi and Actor of the Year 2009 by Elle Indonesia Magazine. He also widens his career as a model for video clip.
