Twenty-two-year-old Stephanie Ho (何雁詩) is gaining wider recognition after her role in TVB legal drama Raising the Bar <四個女仔三個BAR>.

Entering the entertainment industry through her participation in the first season of TVB singing competition The Voice <超級巨聲>, Stephanie’s musical career has not taken off, but her popularity has been on the rise after shifting her focus to acting.

Raising the Bar <四個女仔三個BAR> features Grace Chan (陳凱琳), Jeannie Chan (陳瀅), Moon Lau (劉佩玥) and Stephanie as good friends and trainee lawyers who work in two law firms led by Ben Wong (黃智賢), Ram Chiang (蔣志光), and Elaine Yiu (姚子羚).

Although Stephanie is the only one out of the four women who did not come from a beauty pageant nor modelling background, her bubbly and chirpy personality greatly appeals to viewers. Stephanie’s role in Golden Chopsticks <食為奴> showcased her cute looks, but television forums have been buzzing with activity since Raising the Bar aired.

Many netizens even found Stephanie to be the prettiest among the young actresses in Raising the Bar. There were also other netizens who brought up Stephanie’s past as a competitive golf player, admiring her for being multi-talented. Stephanie had, in fact, represented Hong Kong at the 2010 Asia Games in golf and was ranked 26th out of the 30 shortlisted competitors!

      These newbies are getting younger by days! She’s ok, but easier on the eyes than Grace (her features are sharp!).

          As an audience , I don’t care whatsoever about her height, her performance alone is enough to main praises from me compared to the rest of the other young cast members. I really enjoy watching her in this series, however jeannie on the other hand… She has the same facial expression in most scenes, she’s very wooden to me and unnatural at times. Moon comes off as natural but plain and wooden too but it’s he first drama so I didn’t expect too much. Grace is just Grace, she doesn’t stand out to me just yet, she’s suppose to be one of the lead, but she doesn’t give me that vibe at all.

          @kingma of course not its just a siily joke of me,look at wong cho lam he is even shorter and uglier and can be first lead. what really matter is if you really are such a talent that even uglieness and shortness cant hold you back from being a first lead.

          Athena Chu, Noel Leung, etc. were on the shorter side, but then they had talent. I think height doesn’t matter that much in comparison to looks. Even better with talent.

          In the entertainment industry, it is predominately about looks, so yes, height of a person does matter.

        Totally agree!!

        TVB is heavily promoting Grace Chan/陳凱琳. Why? Because they gave her a contract and the product ain’t selling itself. It’s all hype.

        So now, TVB must use Stephanie Ho/何雁詩 to promote the drama.

          I disagree absolutely. I am thoroughly impressed with Grace in episode 10 (I think, the latest) where her every gesture is so natural and so seamless, doesn’t feel like a newbie. She handled certain scenes with grace and to me she is one of TVB’s best newcomer in years. I hope she keeps improving and the momentum and be as natural as she is in her performance. For those who feels she is hype, I feel perhaps pls rewatch the series. I am very excited about TVB again because for once a newcomer Miss HK who is a natural in front of the TV. Absolutely mesmerising. As for Stephanie, yes she is cute, she is good but that’s the difference. Nothing indepth right now.

      I’m a fan of Stephanie… She is pretty and talented.
      Just a tad short though so leading roles might be limited.

        Thank goodness I am not an actress then because I am even shorter than her. I never knew an actrsesses height mattered,but maybe it does nowadays?

        As for me I think height isn’t the problem, because ppular korean actress Song Hye Kyo is also 5’2. Her problem is that she still has a baby face. As for her acting though, I think it’s very natural. Won’t be surprised if she makes it big and hopefully she will!

          Isn’t Athena Chu, Jolin Tsai, Ariel Lin, 5’2 as well? There are plenty short actresses out there.

        Personally I think a good actress for 1st lead roles needs to be at least 5’3″. Lots of girls are over 5’5″ now. Look at those tall ones, such as Myolie Wu, Linda Chung, Leanne Li, etc. Anyone under 5’2″ is considered a bit short to take 1st lead roles, at least in TVB.

          I don’t height should have any bearing whether that person should be lead or not unless role requires a tall or short girl.

          It works on shortie too if she has super good acting, but the chances are not as good.

      Out for the 4 I do like Stephanie the best! She’s so cute & her acting is easy to watch. My least favourite would be Moon Lau her acting is plain & looks wise she’s okay so I’m a bit surprised TVB is choosing to promote her.. But I don’t mind watching her in future dramas!

      Idk my most favorite but my least favorite is Jeanie chan I think she always act like she’s all that. And she’s ugly it’s just annoys me. She’s another wanna be Eliza Sam Trying to act cute and try to make it look like they can act

        it’s true, Jeanie seems a little stuck up but we can’t judge someone based on one tv drama

          This is not Jeanie’s first TV drama series. She was acting Flora Chan’s young aged character in “Never Dance Alone”.

      Her only competition should really be just Grace. Jeannie has an unfortunate b.itch face that makes it very hard to sympathize her and plus her role is not as likeable. Moon is too plain to promote. So that leaves Grace. But I do quite like Stephanie in here – low maintenance, stupidly smart, easy to blend with others and happy/cute all the time.

      I’m really enjoying the drama so far.

      Stephanie – She’s fun to watch and her relationship with her mentor (Duncan) is hilarious. She’s cute and she definitely has talent.
      Grace – Her acting is similar to her acting in Overachievers, but she is still so much better than Rebecca Zhu, Oceane Zhu, and Christine Kuo.
      Jeannie – I think she’s the prettiest of the four of them. She definitely has the least likable character however she is able to convince me as a spoiled brat. I would love to see Jeannie in a role of a kind character.
      Moon – I dislike Moon and her character the most. Her acting is the worst of them all and her looks are…plain. I don’t see her lasting long in the acting industry unless she improves in either department, unless she’s Toby Leung who has the connections.

        So far I like all of them with grace being mu guilty pleasure. She is an absolute joy to watch. Very natural. Stephanie is cute but cute doesn’t make her a wonderful great or good actress. She is competent. Moon is the gentle girl? I like her. I think she fits her role. I am annoyed with Louise bas skin. He needs treatment pronto.

      i also like Stephanie Ho the most among the four main actress (or most probably i think i only like to watch her and none of the other three) … the theme song that she sang also sounds very nice, bubbly and high spirited … love to watch more of her scenes … she is really attractive and outstanding.

      I think she has potential. She can be better. I like her character. She’s bubbly, cute, and naive with a heart of gold. I do like how Steph is portraying her. However, she does get OTT sometimes. IDK this character requires too much to portray. It’s pretty similar to the one in Glided Chopsticks. At least she doesn’t shout and scream as much as this one. Add oil!

      i think grace did a great job , even though she has only been in the industry for less than 3 years . her performance has been improving. remember when chermaine sheh fisrt debut people also make bad remarks about her. Look where she is standing now. Everything takes time. TVB is now budding new talents to replace the older generation ones. So lets just support as there are many with talents .

      I think Jeannie is pretty but unfortunately stuck with the btch role. Moon Lau is forgettable. Grace isn’t that great imo. So, yes, Stephanie Ho is the best atm.

      Stephanie was cute and all, but her acting is not there yet. Still have alot of room for improvement and so are the other girls.

      I also think Stephanie Ng is pretty, but is too short. However, she seems to have acting talents! She did well in “Gilded Chopsticks”. It is usually harder to act in ancient drama series than in modern ones. I give her lots of credits in her debut.
