Daphne jointed CATCHPLAY in 2012 and oversees the full array of businesses which originally started from film distribution. Observing growing opportunities in the digital world, Daphne took the initiatives and led CATCHPLAY to embark on its expansion into the digital content industry and launched the CATCHPLAY+ service in Taiwan, Singapore and Indonesia in 2016. To date, CATCHPLAY+ has built a 6-million user base across the three markets.
Daphne has also extended the company’s reach upstream into co-production investments and financing. The recent years’ projects include The Revenant and Assassin’s Creed with Hollywood studio New Regency and Silence by director Martin Scorsese. In 2019, CATCHPLAY ventured into the distribution of drama series with its first two projects, The World Between Us (in partnership with Warner Media’s HBO Asia) and The Making of An Ordinary Woman (in partnership with Taiwan’s CTS) highly rated as the top two Mandarin-speaking shows of the year. In July 2020, Daphne expanded CATCHPLAY’s investments further and established the company’s production subsidiary, SCREENWORKS ASIA. Jointly backed by Taiwan government’s National Development Fund, SCREENWORKS ASIA targets to produce 100 hours of premium content a year including films, mini-series and factual entertainment.
Daphne holds an M.A. in Theatre Production from the University of Hull (UK). Prior to joining CATCHPLAY, Daphne had extensive experience at international advertising agencies followed by nearly 8 years as the Vice President of Marketing at Taiwan Mobile.
