Joan Lin (born 30 June 1953), or Lin Feng-jiao, is a retired award-winning Taiwanese actress.
Lin was the second child out of five children. She dropped out of school at the age of 12 due to her family's poverty.
In 1972, at age 19, she starred in her first film, The Hero of Chiu Chow (poster) / Hero of Waterfront (onscreen), a kung fu film. Many of her films are based on the novels of Chiung Yao.
She met Jackie Chan in 1981 and they married in Los Angeles the following year. Their only child, a son Jaycee Chan (now also an actor and singer), was born the day after they got married. Lin has since retired from the film industry.
