Philippe Joly

Ambassador and Head of Mental Marketing Philippe Joly is a French actor, screenwriter, filmmaker and entrepreneur. Born in Moscow, Russia, for the past seven years Philippe has made Hong Kong his home, where he lives an untroubled life as part of the Mui Wo Mafia. Besides his native French, Philippe is fluent in many languages, including Italian, Russian, Spanish, English, and the filthiest parts of Cantonese and Mandarin. He is best known as an actor for his roles as ‘Zoltan’ in the 2015 film Pound of Flesh with Jean-Claude Van Damme and ‘Decimus’ in Jackie Chan’s epic film Dragon Blade.

Philippe regularly plays the villain in action films in Asia and appeared alongside Chow Yun Fat as a foreign gangster in From Vegas to Macau, and Andy Lau, whom he’s faced twice, first as a killer disguised as a maid in the film Mission Milano, and then as Chief Commissioner in Chasing The Dragon. Recent projects include Juno Mak‘s latest film Sons of The Neon Night (風林火山), and the Chinese sci-fi action film Ultimate Code (终极代码), in which he plays a lead role as the villain alongside a Chinese cast and David Belle.

Since 2018, Philippe’s been recording comedy sketches for RTHK with Sadie Kaye, playing ‘Mr. Meaner’, the perfect foil to her character ‘Miss Adventure‘. The pair are also working together playing Mr. & Mrs. Sharpe-Payne on a sitcom, Meet The New Parents.

An entrepreneur whose expertise and passion for mobile technologies gets him regularly solicited for consultancy work, Philippe has been involved in many projects in the digital space, including developing and launching mobile apps, web portals & social networks. In 2011 he won the Mobile Messaging Award for his venture SafeBox.mobi. He’s the author of non-fiction business book Potemkin, Inc, and is currently writing a second book, 100 Ways To Die. (Well, he’d know. He’s currently in the Gobi Desert getting eaten by a giant monster..!)

As well as being an Ambassador, Philippe has made an invaluable contribution to the design and marketing of Mental Ideas as the platform’s Head of Mental Marketing. He’s a director of Brainstorm HK.
