TVB actress Jacqueline Wong (pic) has reportedly changed her English name and is said to be working as a real estate agent, Guang Ming Daily reported.

In April, Wong was caught kissing married singer Andy Hui, 52 in the backseat of a taxi.

Footage of the affair went viral online and caused an uproar among fans, leading to Wong and Hui taking a hiatus from work.

Having “vanished” for more than five months, it was reported that Wong’s TVB drama Finding Her Voice is set to air in October.

It is also said that TVB will not invite her to publicity events and no one seems to be able to contact her.

Although it is not clear if Wong had really changed career, she was interested in real estate and had invested in the property market.

Besides owning properties in Hong Kong, Wong and her sister Scarlett Wong, 37, bought a 55.74sq m residential property in Vancouver, Canada, in 2016.
