Why Grandma From Turning Red Sounds So Familiar

Actress Wai Ching Ho has been a well-traveled actress during her three-decade-plus career. Per her IMDb page, if her voice sounds familiar to you and you’re over the age of 40, that might be because you were a soap opera fan in the 1980s. Ho recurred as Kim on the ABC soap opera “One Life to Live” six times from 1983 to 1990. She took on a number of small roles during the time, even appearing in the 1990 parody of life behind the scenes at a soap, “Soapdish.” 

She appeared on “Law & Order” three times as three different characters — Mrs. Rhee in the 1992 episode “Self Defense”; the Owner in the 1999 episode “Blood Money”; and Mrs. Ngai in a 2001 episode titled “Teenage Wasteland.” She also showed up on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” twice; once as Jane Yu in the episode “Enemy Within,” and once as Mrs. Wong in “Proud Flesh.” She rounded out her “L&O” appearance resume by showing up twice in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” as Gladys Tang in “Lost Traveler” and Susan Guan in “The Inheritance.” 

All of this led Ho to her only other voice acting role, as a pedestrian in the Rockstar video game “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.”
