Ruby Lin Xinru is a Taiwanese actress, television and film producer, and singer. American entertainment critic Derek Elley named Lin as "Taiwan's TV Drama Queen".

3 years after Lin made her acting debut in a TV commercial, she rose to national and regional prominence overnight for her role as Xia Ziwei in the TV series My Fair Princess (1998-1999). My Fair Princess was highly popular in East and Southeast countries; launching Lin as a household name in Asia. She followed the success with other hit series including The Duke of Mount Deer (2000), Romance in the Rain (2001), Boy & Girl (2003), Affair of Half a Lifetime (2004), Beauty's Rival in Palace (2010), The Glamorous Imperial Concubine (2011) and The Way We Were (2014).

Since 2010, Lin has been producing TV dramas and TV films starring herself, both in mainland China and Taiwan. Her production debut The Glamorous Imperial Concubine (2011) won her Best Producer at the 2012 TV Drama Awards Made in China, and her first Taiwanese drama production The Way We Were (2014) won three out of seven nominations, including Best Television Series at the 50th Golden Bell Awards. In 1999, she also began a singing career with her debut album Heartbeat, and has since released 6 albums.

According to Apple Daily, Lin was the third highest-earning Taiwanese drama actress in 2011, and the top-earning in 2012 and 2013.

In May 2016, Lin confirmed her relationship with Taiwanese actor Wallace Huo. They reportedly became romantically involved around Lin's birthday in January 2016. Lin married Huo on 31 July 2016 at the Bulgari Hotel in Bali. Celebrities who attended the wedding included Zhao Wei, Fan Bingbing, Shu Qi, Liu Tao, Liu Shishi, Nicky Wu and Hu Ge. The pair also held another wedding reception in Taipei on 2 August 2016. The couple has a daughter, born in January 2017.
