Thanawat Wattanaputi (Nickname: Pope) is a Thai actor.

He was born to a family with two children, he has one older sister. Pope received an undergraduate degree in Communication Arts and Design from King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology. He worked as a graphic designer prior to pursuing a career in acting, which explains his talent in drawing and passion in teaching arts to students. Pope also teaches children soccer. Shortly after his promising career as a graphic designer, in 2006, Pope decides to audition for a leading role in a drama for Channel 9. He won the audition and immediately starts practicing for the role, and resigns from his graphic designing career.

Two years of hard work and practicing, the project was cancelled. Sometime later, Pope earned a minor casting role in the Legend of King Naresuan and was able to put the horse riding and fighting skills to use. The opportunity to play a leading role finally follows as he is cast for the silver screen in "October Sonata", but the movie did not resonate with the public at the time.

Pope was pursued for a role as Nat in the lakorn called Dok Som See Thong, and although he was a supporting actor, his performance was etched in fans’ minds as well as producers alike. He was then signed with Channel 3 and featured as another supporting cast in Tawan Duerd as Nai Singh, a rough around the edges character, but beloved by the fans with his puppy dog eyes and chemistry with co-star Mint Chalida. Pope received additional roles thereafter as Dr. Wattana in Game Rai Game Rak and a playboy in Buang. No matter the role, he is very popular, and amazingly so among his fans' eyes even for his non-leading roles.

Pope's most famous role was in the hit lakorn "Bpoop Phaeh Saniwaat", which was the highest-rated Thai drama of 2018.
