Transgender Thai actress Poy catapulted to fame thanks to her searing romance with Nick Cheung (張家輝) in the recently released The White Storm <掃毒>, as well as her alleged relationship with costar Louis Koo (古天樂). However, recently uncovered photographs suggest that, despite her claims of being single, Poy is already married to her childhood sweetheart.
Though Poy is featured in only a few scenes in The White Storm, the sensationalist headlines surrounding the 28-year-old beauty have pulled her into the limelight. At a recent promotional event in Hong Kong, reporters seemed to focus more on her than on her costars, and staff members flocked around her, hoping for a photograph with her.
Poy gamely responded to the media’s questions with her gentle voice, but the situation took a downturn when reporters produced photographs of her vacationing with a man in Paris, presumably for a honeymoon. According to rumors, the man is Poy’s first love, Juskin, with whom she tied the knot prior to her leap to stardom.
“They got married long ago,” an inside source revealed. “At the time, Poy was an unknown, so when a man with pretty good qualifications accepted her, she grabbed on and didn’t let go!”
The couple reportedly enjoys a stable relationship, although Poy has continued to keep the marriage a secret, in order to further her climb to the top of the entertainment industry.
When faced with the photographs, Poy awkwardly said, “My ex-boyfriend…” After a reporter asked if she would go public with any marriage news, Poy said that would be a joint decision between both parties in the relationship.
Despite suspicions regarding her marital status, Poy’s onscreen appeal, combined with the power trio of Nick, Louis, and Sean Lau (劉青雲), as well as a bevy of heart-stopping action scenes, has undeniably been a major factor behind the success of The White Storm. The film, directed by Benny Chan (陳木勝), reached $10 million HKD in Hong Kong and broke 100 million RMB at the mainland Chinese box office in just four days.
