A transgender sensation and one of the most beautiful women in the world, according to the 25th Annual Independent Critics’ List of 100 Most Beautiful Faces, Treechada is an actress who has transcended both stereotypes and prejudices. She had her sexual reassignment operation when she was only 17 years old and was catapulted into the limelight when she was crowned Miss Tiffany Universe in 2004 at just 19. To date, she is a one of the most relevant personalities in Thai media and a popular ambassador for Thai brands. Treechada has been in several films, both locally and regionally, such as Winter Storm with Nicholas Khoo and, most recently, a small role in a Shaw brother’s film starring bigleague Hong Kong stars Chow Yun Fat and Carina Lau. She has extended her five-year contract with Hong Kong’s Universe Artist Management into a 10-year one and is working on a new series in Thailand, Nang Kaen, so we can expect to see her making a big splash in the Thai entertainment industry very soon. Lastly, Treechada is viewed by her peers and fans as an empowering figure for younger transgenders, representing both beauty and courage in one package.
