The New Paper

"Caldecott Queen" just a label to Joanne Peh


She may not look it, but Joanne Peh is into her 10th year of showbiz.

In that time, the 29-year-old local actress-host won countless acting and popularity awards, became the face of multiple products and services, and stirred up quite a number of controversies too.

In an interview with The New Paper on Wednesday, Peh said she hasn't thought about what she'll be doing in the next decade and if she'll be Caldecott Hill's reigning Ah Jie by then. She's not out to stake a position, she added.

However, one thing she would definitely like to explore is script-writing.

She said: "I think I'd start with a screenplay first, since a movie is shorter than a drama series. It'll probably be a romance, but I'm always preparing for a role or filming, so there's no time to write."

In the meantime, Peh reminisces about her top 10 milestones and her highs and lows in the last decade.

Let's see whether she is fit for the role. She has only two small pears.

Geee... tot its her devilish tom-boy + feminine style that actually kills billions of tadpoles dehydrated in tissue paper or drown in toilet bowls??? :p :D

It's "Show Time"and those narrow-minded please keep their comments to themselves, the world of creativity has no place for them. I am very, very sorry for them...alas!

i'll be very surprise if anyone here raise their hand and admit he was offended by nudity

Chill...the nudity is just in the context of playing a stripper's role in Eric's movie. Those who are easily offended by nudity can always skip the movie.
