Thai transgender actress, Poy, surged in popularity among Chinese viewers after her steamy appearance in The White Storm <掃毒>. Poy has recently signed with Hong Kong’s Universe Artist Management.

The Thai transgender actress will join Gallen Lo (羅嘉良), Elanne Kwong (江若琳), and Jeremy Tsui (徐正曦) under the agency’s talent wing, reports Jayne Stars.

Earlier this week, Poy took a direct flight from Thailand to Hong Kong to sign the management contract with Universe executives.

Due to her busy schedule in Thailand, Poy only stayed in Hong Kong for half an hour. 

Poy allegedly signed a five-year management contract with Universe and will receive a salary of at least $1 million HKD per year.

Poy has also been cast as the lead actress in an upcoming film directed by Oxide Pang (彭順).

The 27-year-old Poy, also known as Treechada Petcharat, was a male at birth.

At the age of 17, he underwent sex reassignment surgery to fulfill his dreams of becoming a woman. Holding a bachelor’s degree in law, Poy speaks fluent English aside from her native Thai.
