Jackie Chan biography

The Chinese actor and singer Jackie Chan was born as Chan Kong Sang in Hong Kong on April 7th, 1954. He grew up in poor conditions. He enjoyed his training at the renowned Beijing Opera School, where he was taught acrobatics, dance, singing and martial arts, among other things.

Jackie Chan had his first role in a film in 1962 at the age of seven. More than 30 years would pass before his breakthrough in Hollywood. In the meantime, Chan worked as a stuntman and was also successful as a singer in China.

He made his breakthrough in America in 1994 with "Rumble in the Bronx". Since then, Jackie Chan has been known worldwide as the most famous actor in the Material Arts films, a special direction of action films in which breathtaking acrobatics and Far Eastern martial arts are shown.

To date, Jackie Chan has appeared in more than 80 films. He has suffered numerous injuries and now has some stunts done by specially trained stunt men.

Nevertheless, his popularity remains high - for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing (China) he sings the official countdown song "We are ready".

Well-known films with Chan from the recent past are "Rush Hour 1-3" (1998 to 2007), "Shang-High Noon" (2000 with Owen Wilson and Lucy Liu), "Around the World in 80 Days" (2003) and " Rob-B-Hood "(2006).

His latest project is the film "The Forbidden Kingdom", which will be shown in theaters in 2008. In the same year, the film "The Shinjuku Incident" appears.

Due to his extensive knowledge of languages ​​(including English, Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese), Jackie Chan dubbed his films for several countries himself. In Germany, the voice actor Stefan Gossler has been doing this job for a number of years.

The actor has been married to the Taiwanese actress Lin Feng-Jiao since 1982. The two have a son together. Chan also has an illegitimate daughter from an affair.

He is intensely committed to social projects and donates a lot to charitable institutions.
