Before Joanna became an actor she had spent a year in college as an art major, been married and divorced, and modeled in San Francisco.  She had a number of small acting roles, but it was not until she played Zhora, the stripper/snake charmer in Ridley Scott's Blade Runner (1982) that she made her biggest impression.

Joanna continued getting supporting roles in various features, notably as Bob Hoskins' long-suffering barmaid girlfriend in Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988).
