Joanne Peh (born 25 April 1983) is a Singaporean actress and contracted artiste under MediaCorp.


After winning the title of Miss Elegant and Miss Personality in Miss Singapore Universe 2002, Joanne was signed on as an artiste with MediaCorp. Despite having to juggle both work and her university studies at the same time, she won both the Most Popular Newcomer award and the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes award at the Star Awards 2004, an annual Singaporean award ceremony for TV personalities.

Joanne was educated in Temasek Secondary School where she was head prefect and Victoria Junior College. After her graduation with a mass communications degree from the School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University, Joanne continued her acting career with the station as a full-time actress.[1] She impressed audiences with her natural acting in drama serials such as Like Father, Like Daughter, The Golden Path, The Little Nyonya and A Tale of 2 Cities. Her compelling portrayal of Yuzhu, the ill-fated girl with a heart of gold in The Little Nyonya, earned her rave reviews, as well as a Best Actress award nod at Star Awards 2009.[citation needed]

Joanne's foray into movies started as early as 2004, when she acted in Jack Neo's movie The Best Bet. In 2011, she proved her versatility and potential as a movie actress in Raintree Pictures' highly successful festive blockbuster, It's A Great Great World.[citation needed]

Effectively bilingual and well known for her eloquence and intelligence, Joanne is also a competent host for variety shows and specials, including President's Star Charity 2005 and The Activist Journey, which won her the Best Info-ed Programme Host award at Star Awards 2011, edging out veterans like Mark Lee and Bryan Wong for the award.

She won her second Best Actress at the Star Awards 2012 for her performance as a spoilt girl trying to find love in A Tale Of 2 Cities. This is a feat only matched by fellow MediaCorp actress Rui En. Joanne scored a rare double nomination in the Star Awards 2015 for her roles as Zhang Hui Niang in The Journey: Tumultuous Times and Police Inspector Leow Xin Yi in C.L.I.F. 3, in which she won the Best Supporting Actress.

A highly sought-after celebrity for commercial endorsements, Joanne has lent her face to numerous immensely successful campaigns, including Lux and Jetstar.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Peh had a highly public relationship with Bobby Tonelli for four years, after meeting on the set of The Little Nyonya. The couple regularly appeared on television shows and commercials with one another before their split.[2]She is a pretty women

In April 2013, Peh began dating co-star Qi Yuwu.[3] They were married in a private ceremony on 9 September 2014 at The Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa. [4] On 28 January 2015, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child.[5] On 7 August 2015, she gave birth to a baby girl.[6]
