Chiao Li Na or Lisa Chiao Chiao, often credited Chiao Chiao (Chinese: 焦姣; pinyin: Jiāo Jiāo; born 6 March 1943[1]), is a Taiwanese film actress best known for her work in Hong Kong cinema. She was employed by the Shaw Studios between 1966 and 1972, where she appeared in films such as A Cause to Kill in 1970.

In 1972 she briefly returned to Taiwan, where she made some television appearances. She then went on to appear in several Hong Kong films in the 1980s and 1990s, with her last appearance in the 1998 picture Bishōnen, making some 50 appearances between 1964 and 1998.

In 1963, Chiao married Huang Tsung Hsing, and after his death in 1976 she worked more extensively behind the scenes, most notably as a dubber. She later remarried to Hong Kong actor Kenneth Tsang.

In 2009, she appeared in Prince of Tears directed by Yonfan. It showed at film festivals in Venice and Toronto in 2009.[2]
