Jackie Chan

 

 

Born on April 7th, 1954

Chinese actor and specialist in martial arts

 

Jackie Chan learned Kung Fu at the Beijing Central Academy of Drama and started his career as a stuntman with his model, Bruce Lee. He quickly became enormously popular in China, but breaking into the U.S. market proved much more difficult. It was only with the very successful Rush Hour that he finally triumphed.

Jackie Chan does most of his stunts himself. His inspiration comes mainly from the films starring Buster Keaton, a comic actor star who was also known for his stunts. Jackie can be found in the Guinness World Records book under the heading "Most Stunts by a Living Actor," which also points out that "no insurance company will underwrite Chan's productions in which he performs all his own stunts." He has suffered injuries on numerous occasions. Over the years he has dislocated his pelvis and broken his fingers, a big toe, his nose, cheekbones, hips, sternum, neck, one ankle, and his ribs, all of which has earned him the nickname of the 'man with a thousand fractures'.
