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.

Acting career

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."[1] Ho starred alongside Eason Chan in the Pang Ho-cheung directed slasher film, Dream Home.[2]

In 2009, Ho along with husband Conroy Chan, and Andrew Ooi, co-founded 852 Films, a film production company.[3]

Personal life

Ho is the youngest daughter of businessman Stanley Ho and Ho's second wife Lucina Laam. She has 3 elder sister and 1 younger brother Pansy, Daisy, Maisy and Lawrence.

In November 2003, Ho married musician-actor Conroy Chan Chi-chung in Australia.

She credits her eldest sister Pansy with supporting her early efforts to establish a singing career over the objections of their father.[4]
