Breaking Barriers: Coconuts ladyboy list winner lands primo Hong Kong film role

Treechada “Poyd” Petcharat – who topped our recent list of the Top 10 Hottest Ladyboys on Instagram – has been cast as a drug lord’s daughter in Hong Kong action movie “The White Storm.” 

Was it her Coconuts list supremacy that landed her the role? We’d like to think so.

Earlier this year, Benny Chan – the Hong Kong veteran director of such blockbusters as “A Moment of Romance,” “New Police Story” and “Divergence” – came to the Kingdom in search of a Thai actress for his big budget production. Chan finally chose 26-year-old transgender Treechada  – winner of the 2004 Miss Tiffany’s Universe and Miss International Queen – to play the Thai-Chinese daughter of a huge drug kingpin and a wife of a Narcotics Bureau inspector, played by Nick Cheung.

“The White Storm,” which is slated for a late 2013 launch, was filmed in Hong Kong, Macau, and Thailand, and is expected to perform well at the box office. The film’s trailer and official poster were first introduced at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Three highly praised actors – Louis Koo, Sean Lau and Nick Cheung – have reportedly helped in attracting many international film distributors.
