Lin, together with Charlie Chin and Chin Han and Brigitte Lin, were the biggest names in the Taiwanese and Hong Kong cinema industries in the 1970s. Dubbed the "Two Chins, Two Lins" (二秦二林) by the media, they were known for starring in several box-office hits, many of which were adaptations of Chiung Yao's novels.
Joan Lin met Hong Kong actor Jackie Chan in 1981 and they married in Los Angeles the following year. Their only child, Jaycee Chan, was born the day after they got married. Lin has since retired from the film industry.
