Career of Jadyn Wong
Jadyn Wong had joined up for a local talent agency while studying business at the University of Calgary and frequently sneaked into auditions for the theatre department, but she was disqualified from earning a role after it was revealed that she was not a theatre major. Despite this, she was able to go through the first round on numerous occasions, allowing her to speak with the directors, one of whom urged her to pursue her passion. She won a role in the Emmy-winning miniseries ‘Broken Trail’ in 2006 after only six months on the job. She first auditioned in Cantonese for the position, but she was required to learn and speak Mandarin for the part. The miniseries gave her the opportunity to work alongside seasoned actor Robert Duvall, which helped her make the decision to postpone her college studies.
She only had a few guest appearances for almost a decade, including two episodes of ‘Caprica’ and six episodes of the Canadian drama series ‘Being Erica,’ where she played Rachel. Meanwhile, she made her cinematic debut in 2009 with a small part in ‘Space Buddies,’ and has since acted in a number of American, Canadian, and Mexican films. Her major break came in 2014, when she was cast as Happy Quinn in the American action drama series ‘Scorpion,’ which is partially based on the life of computer specialist Walter O’Brien. Even though her character is based on a real genius – who is, in fact, an older guy — the show took creative license in introducing her in his place.

While it was quickly apparent that she was just babysitting her friends’ pets, some admirers began to read more into her posts than she probably intended: some speculated that she was method playing her character in the TV show, while others speculated that it could be a hint at something in her life.
