Ann Kok (simplified Chinese: 郭舒贤pinyin: Guō Shūxián, born 11 January 1973) is an actress from Singapore. She started her acting career as a finalist in Star Search Singapore 1993 where she won a contract with TCS8, then the Mandarin channel of MediaCorp TV.

Regarded as San-jie (the third most popular actress in Singapore) in the 1990s, she received many lead roles in this period. Ann also produced three solo albums. She went overseas (she signed on to another artiste manager who was a Hong Konger) in 2000 to expand her career, but the move proved relatively unsuccessful. She returned to Singapore's MediaCorp in Year 2005.

In the annual Star Awards 2006, Ann was nominated for the Best Leading Actress award for her performance as Jiang Ruqing in Love Concierge. The role was that of an evil and scheming woman who later suffered from depression. It was the first Best Actress nomination in her 13 year career, and she was tipped as the favourite to win the award. However, Ivy Lee bagged the award instead.

Ann has since received much more challenging and substantial roles to date, such as the 2008 drama La Femme where she played a career minded lady who neglected her family and later suffered from breast cancer.

Her recent performance in the highly acclaimed drama Housewives' Holiday where she played the lead role Alice Zheng, a materialistic and show-off housewife, has generated numerous praises and positive reviews from the audience. Many felt Ann had a large breakthrough in her acting skills in this series. Housewives' Holiday is the Highest Rated Drama Series for Year 2009, where ratings peaked at 23.4%. Ann is currently one of the few hot favourites to win the Best Leading Actress Award as well as Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes award in the upcoming Star Awards 2010.
