Joanne Peh is rather decent looking, and has a sweet expression that probably appeals to many people. However, I personally feel that the looks required in the beauty and modelling industry does not relate to the skill of acting. While she looks pretty decent and sweet, her ability to act is questionable at times.

Most of the times she can act quite well, but in some of the dramas she has acted in, I have found on numerous occasions that she had a lack of portrayal of expression and at times I felt she was reciting her lines and not acting her part out. Sure she has her good moments in drama, but I feel that the occasional holes in her playing of her part seriously affects her name as an actress, despite her apparent versatility in taking on different roles.

As a variety show hostess, she is not too bad. She is able to bring out just enough live to the show, but sometimes, her comments or jokes do not fit the background mood of the show, which then questions the wittiness of the content of the commentary. In conclusion, I feel is an actress with pretty decent looks but need much improvement in terms of her acting and hosting although they are already of quite a good standard.

Deep inside no matter how much you love an actress or actor, you know that there is a part of them that is fake, and no doubt as professional actors, it is easy to be deceived by the false impression that have painstakingly crafted to fool the audience.

Joanne Peh, however, is an exception. Like many others, she tries very hard to create an ideal celebrity image, but fails miserably because her acting just isn’t up to the mark, both on screen and off screen. She tries to be sexy and alluring, no doubt appearance wise she has succeeded, but from the way she talks and her mannerism, it’s a little too obvious she’s coming across as trying-too-hard.

Every time it’s her scene, my face turns sour and I excrete intestine-long criticisms. (sorry for the gory reference) Spokesperson for advertisements – hot body, plastic face. Emcee? Strong command of English - fair enough. Always hitting headlines with her gossips and change of relationship statuses - scripted and deliberately dramatized. (what’s new?) What seems absolutely incomprehensible is how she managed to clinch even a supporting role in local dramas. Dear Joanne Peh, brush up your acting skills and at least I’d say you are a successful pseudo.

I recalled flicking my television on at 9pm to tune into 'The Little Nyonya'. I was instantly greeted by Joanne Peh acting as a mentally unstable patient who was serenaded by a sea of cockroaches. Impressive. I will certainly never, ever so ever agree to be swamped by an ocean of insects no matter the species. It still irks me whenever I chance upon even a plastic replica of those repulsive looking creepy crawlies.

Frankly, I thought Joanne Peh would not stay on screen permanently. She exuded a queer vibe; like her acting career was a part time situation that enabled her to quench her boredom. Hence, I was taken aback when she began plopping back onscreen via both TV shows and commercials. Lots of it. She brought along a mysterious sense of memorability towards the items that she endorsed. Walk to the left, the right, front and back. I'd see her face plastered everywhere accompanied by a gigantic bottle of Lux. Oh no, it doesn't end there. Her commercials conquered the advertising sector onscreen too. They're repeated a gazillion times till viewers like me had the knack of memorising those commercial lines of hers.

Singapore's best actress

Joanne Peh really brings out the better side of local television. A good command of English, a talented actress and of course, stunning good looks. Be it a drama series or a reality show, Joanne Peh can make any show come to life.

Her work in Code of Law was simply the best I have ever seen in any local production. She really showed the more matured side of her in the show and literally could be in comparison with any American produced TV series. She was one of the reasons why Code of Law was made one of the more successful local production.

She also brought up the more youthful and energetic side of her while hosting Sasuke Singapore. Always putting on a beautiful smile in front of the camera whilst cracking witty jokes, she really makes the show more entertaining, A talented actress indeed!

While she has a memorable face, I think the only show that I've caught with her acting would be the little nonya. In that particular local production, I think that her character was the hardest to portray - not only did she have to cry pitifully at certain scenes, and she did well I must add, she had to also be sweet-tempered and kind despite circumstances.

On-screen, she seems like a likable personality, however, I'm not too sure with her off-screen character. Gossip is that she broke up with her ex-boyfriend Bobby Tonelli and went together with Qi Wu - and that's all I know about her.

Maybe she might not be as appealing in other local dramas, but I do know that her character in the Little Nonya won me over. Maybe I'll leave my judgement on her acting based on her future dramas - if I catch them on Channel 8.

My mum is always going gaga over the fact that Joanne Peh has such a sweet smile, looks cool, is a born beauty! Yes, whenever she catches Joanne Peh on the screen, she goes "wooooo"!!

Yes, I am not arguing on any of the above points simply because I agree with her. Of cause, not so to the extend of going gaga with my mum. Instead, I would say that Joanne Peh's proving herself well with all the shows and commercials that she's taking up. And I must say that she has acted very well in The Little Nyonya.

I love the sunshine in her. You can't miss those darlie smiles!

One of the most popular actresses in Singapore, I feel that Miss Peh has come a long way since her days of Miss Singapore Universe. Blessed with good looks and charisma, she caught the eye of the judges in 2002, and has not looked back since.

Although I personally like Felicia Chin and Fiona Xie more, I feel that Joanne Peh is a powerhouse in her own right. She showed how versatile she was as an actress she could be in The Little Nyonya, and has won numerous awards since her debut. I hope that she can expand into the regional scene into the near future; she is simply too talented to be stuck in Singapore.

Joanne Peh is one of the only few remaining talented actresses in Singapore.

Charismatic and gorgeous, she has taken the Singapore media industry by storm and contributed towards the revolutionizing of television after some programmes went awry and some actresses and actors failed to do their part.

Her performance in Code of Law is simply splendid, truly magnificent. Gifted with beauty, brains and talent, she puts them to good use and never fails to deliver.

With her sunshiney good looks and killer figure, she's one to watch out for.

Appointed as the ambassador of Jetstar, Laurier and many more, Joanne is literally everywhere! She is best known(in my opinion) as the mentally unstable Huang Yuzhu in The Little Nyonya, which granted her a Best Actress award in 2009. She then further proved her acting chops when she won the same award in 2012.

12 awards at the age of 28. Looks good for a resume/portfolio, I would say! Although I'm not really a fan of her, I enjoy reading her blog. She hasn't updated her blog in months, though, she's still active on other social media sites like Twitter and Instagram.

Possibly the next Ah Jie(of course including Rui En and Jeanette Aw), Joanne is the second Mediacorp actress to have won two Best Actress awards. The other actress is none other than the lovable Chen Li Ping, aka Miss Ai-Yo-Yo" (哎哟哟老師).

Other than acting, Joanne has also ventured into hosting. She has hosted the President's Star Charity 2005 and The Activist Journey.

She has such a beautiful look and devilish figure women would kill for to have.
On top of that, Joanne Peh can be considered a veteran actress as she has starred in many films before - Channel 8, Channel U or Channel 5; the effectively bilingual individual has put up great performances in shows that receive high views from the public.

She used to be one of my favourite actress - that sunny and congenial disposition of her emanates an comfortable aura that paints her to be one of those approachable and amiable person. I love her smile - the dazzling pearlie whites are highly appealing.

However, it is recent (or maybe not so recent) that reports on Joanne Peh's disrespectful behaviour has undeniably and inadvertently spoiled the once perfect image of her in my mind. Maybe it's simply me and my inaccurate assumption based on unfounded theories and reasons, I've observed some transformations in her character and personality.

I shall not comment further, lest her fans come after me. However, it is undeniable that she is a talented star that deserves recognition from the rest of us.
