Our interview with Josie Ho: the acclaimed rock singer, actress and producer from Hong Kong everybody should know.
If you like k-rock and j-rock, you might’ve heard of Josie and The Uni Boys: the indie rock band from Hong Kong is currently involved in their first-ever Asia tour (Go Bezerka!, beginning in Tokyo) for its 10th anniversary.
But Josie Ho, the vocalist and frontwoman, has a long list of artistic experiences: she’s a prolific actress, with more than 30 film credits since 1999, exploring a great variety of roles (also without a script, as happened for Exile), receiving nods at the Golden Horse and Hong Kong Film Festival.
Josie co-founded the production company 852 Films in 2008.
