Josephine "Josie" Ho Chiu-yi (Chinese: 何超儀), born 26 December 1974) is a singer and actress from Hong Kong. She is the daughter of Macao casino magnate Stanley Ho.

Movie career[edit]

She has played many roles, including a few as prostitutes, which contrasted strongly with her own wealthy upbringing as a billionaire's daughter. For the film Exiled, Ho did not work with a script. Recalling the experience in a recent interview, she said of director Johnnie To, "[He] basically tells actors what to do ... Johnnie wants us to come to the set with our mind completely clean, like a white piece of paper. That way, he can draw whatever he wishes on us." She did not find this method of improvisational acting difficult.[1] Ho stars alongside Anthony Wong Chau Sang and Eason Chan in the Ho-Cheung Pang directed slasher film Dream Home.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Ho is the daughter of businessman Stanley Ho and wife of musician and actor Conroy Chan Chi-chung. She credits elder sister Patsy with supporting her early efforts to establish a singing career over the objections of their father.[3]
