Biography

Jackie Chan was born on Victoria Peak, Hong Kong (now part of People's Republic of China). Chan is the son of Lee-Lee and Charles Chan, who emigrated to Canberra, Australia in 1960 as refugees from the Chinese Civil War. Prior to leaving China, Lee-Lee and Charles had worked as a maid and butler respectively, for the French ambassador to Hong Kong, with Chan spending his formative years within the confines of the embassy. Chan's Chinese name at birth was Chan Kong-Sang, meaning "born in Hong Kong".

Before he adopted the Westernized name, "Jacky", and later, "Jackie", he was known by a variety of other nicknames. As he was a heavy baby - 5.5kg (12 lb) at birth, he claims to have spent 12 months in the womb - his mother nicknamed him "Pao Pao" (meaning "Cannonball"). Later, while studying at the Peking Opera School he was known as Yuen Lo, as a mark of respect to his master, Yu Jim-Yuen.


In his early stuntman and acting career (prior to New Fist of Fury in 1976) he was known as Chen Yueng Lung (or Chen Yuen Lung). In his autobiography Chan states that he used this name, which is close to his opera brother Sammo Hung's opera name, so that he didn't have to put his name on films he wasn't happy with. He was thereafter known as "Jacky", named by his Australian co-workers when living in Australia in 1976-1977.[1] Working on a building site alongside a labourer named Jack, Chan's co-workers nicknamed him "Little Jack", and later shortened this to Jacky. However, he changed Jacky to Jackie during the filming of "The Big Brawl" and has been known by it ever since. Because his father's family name was originally Fong and was changed only when arriving in Hong Kong, Chan's Chinese name was changed in family records years later to "Fong Si Lung".[2] He has also been listed as "Sing Lung" (meaning "already a dragon" in an attempt to jump out of Bruce Lee's shadow), particularly in relation to his music and it may be no coincidence that his character in the film Fearless Hyena was called "Shing Lung".

Jackie's star status in Asia has been unquestionable ever since his first films in the late 1970s. Translating that success into global stardom has proved much more difficult. In particular, the American market was very unreceptive, due to a combination of bad marketing and bad casting. His first US feature film, Battle Creek Brawl saw him portraying a vengeful loner, a routine which had already been done before by countless actors and was not suited to Jackie's comedic talent. His next American film, Cannonball Run, was a hit, but it was an ensemble piece and did not give a good idea of audience reaction to Chan himself. The Big Brawl was a 1980 movie which marked Jackie Chans first attempt to enter western cinema. ...

A further complication was the restriction to Chan's style of work, enforced mainly by the studios fearful of legal action if their investment were ever to injure himself on set. The lack of actual contact during action scenes removed the intensity which was his hallmark, which added to the frustration.


It was not until 1994 that Jackie finally decided to try the States again, when Rumble in the Bronx was released. When it made almost $10 million on its opening weekend and became the first Hong Kong film to make it to number one at the US box office, he had finally cracked it. Every film Jackie has made since has seen a successful American release, making him a true global phenomenon. Rumble in the Bronx (紅番區; Hong faan kui in Cantonese) is an action-comedy movie starring Jackie Chan and Anita Mui. ...


Early years

Jackie Chan and Yuen Siu Tin in the film Snake in the Eagle's Shadow

Chan was educated at Nan Hua Elementary Academy, but he struggled and his parents felt he didn't fit in at the school because they called him a twinky (yellow on outside white on inside), so they sent him to the Chinese Opera Research Institute (1961-1971) and later, due to financial difficulties, they enrolled him at the Peking Opera School. The enrollment was to last for 10 years, and while there, he was taught skills in acrobatics and kung fu under an extremely strict regime. It was here that Chan joined a number of other students who would become members of the Seven Little Fortunes (the Opera school's best students), and ultimately his Hong Kong film industry compatriots. They included Yuen Wah, Corey Yuen (Yuen Kwai) and Yuen Qiu. He also became close friends with Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao, and the three of them would later come to be known as the Three Brothers / Three Dragons.

Upon finishing at the Opera school, Chan found it difficult to find work, especially due to the declining popularity of Chinese Opera. Like his fellow former students, he found work as a film stuntman on several films including Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon. However, when Lee died in 1973, Hong Kong action cinema went into decline and the studios were forced to release many of their staff, including Chan. Bruce Lee (Traditional Chinese: ; Simplified Chinese: ; Pinyin: Lǐ Xiǎolóng; Cantonese Yale: Léih Síulùhng; November 27, 1940 – July 20, 1973) was a Chinese American martial artist, philosopher, instructor, and martial arts actor widely regarded as one of the most influential martial artists of the twentieth century. ...

In 1975, he was in an adult comedic film called “All in the Family”. “I had to do anything I could to make a living 31 years ago, but I don't think it's a big deal, even Marlon Brando used to be exposed in his movies,” Chan said. The adult scenes at that time were more conservative than the current films however. This remains the only film he has done so far where no fighting or stunts were involved. Marlon Brando, Jr. ...


After a brief spell living with his parents in Australia, working on building sites, Chan received a job offer via his friend, film producer Willie Chan. After some hesitation due to the low pay, Chan accepted and began working for Lo Wei's studio at Golden Harvest, one of the most famous directors in Hong Kong, agreeing a ten year contract. They were looking for a young actor to mould into a star. Lo was desperate to find the new Bruce Lee, but his attempts at making Chan into this character resulted in poor box office returns. Chan did however make his first starring roles in films such as Shaolin Chamber of Death (1976) and Snake & Crane Arts of Shaolin (1978).

Willie Chan arranged to loan Jackie out to rival studio, Seasonal Films. Given greater creative freedom, Chan starred in the first box office hit of his career, Snake in the Eagle's Shadow and his first international success, Drunken Master (both 1978). Both films were directed by Yuen Woo-ping, and both featured Yuen's father (Yuen Siu Tien also known as Simon Yuen) in fundamentally the same role, as a drunken beggar / kung fu master. In the latter film, Chan depicted Wong Fei Hung as a young and mischievous rascal, rather than the venerable Kung fu master that the Hong Kong audiences knew so well. Drunken Master was a radical film for its time and led the way for other international hits. A sequel to Drunken Master, Drunken Master II, was later released 16 years later in 1994.

As his loan period ended, Chan had to return to Lo Wei's studio. Although he was handed his own directorial debut with Fearless Hyena (1979), Chan was still constrained by Lo over both wages and creativity. Willie Chan assisted Jackie by securing a deal for him to work directly for Golden Harvest, breaking his contract with Lo Wei. In response, Lo Wei asked the Triads to force Chan to remain in his employment. Chan escaped briefly to the US, whilst negotiations took place to resolve the issues, and even after his return to Hong Kong, there were interruptions during the filming of Chan's next feature, The Young Master (1980). Eventually the problems were sorted out, with the help of Jimmy Wang Yu, Golden Harvest bought out Lo Wei's contract and Lo subsequently retired from the film industry.[3] This movie is an autobiography about Jackie Chan. ...

1980s

Chan married Taiwanese actress Lin Feng-Jiao (Chinese: 林鳳嬌) in 1983 according to his autobiography, but many Asian sources state he was married on December 1, 1982. His official website states that he “has been married to Lin Feng-Jiao since 1982”. Chan admitted on an interview with Indian Talk Show hostess, Simi Garewal that he married his wife because she got pregnant before marriage.[4] Chan and Lin Feng-Jiao have a son, Jaycee Chan (aka Jo-Ming), who was born on December 3, 1982, although Chan's autobiography lists his son's birth year as 1984.

Stated in Jackie Chan's autobiography, 'I am Jackie Chan', two Japanese fans attempted suicide when a Japanese article printed the marriage of Chan and Feng Jiao. One girl drank poison in front of Jackie's manager, Willie Chan, and other JC staff in the JC Studios based in Hong Kong. She was rushed to a hospital and saved. The other, however, threw her body in front of a subway and killed herself. Since then, Jackie has kept his family in the dark and in a recent interview with UK presenters of the Priory Show, Zoe Ball and Jamie Theakston in August 2001, when asked if there was a 'Mrs Chan' in his life, he replied 'secret' and nothing more. Taiwanese fans have shown aggression towards Jackie and accuse him of being responsible for Feng Jiao's early retirement.


Chan's attempts to break into the American movie industry began in the 1980s, appearing in movies like Battle Creek Brawl, The Cannonball Run, Cannonball Run II and The Protector. The Big Brawl was a 1980 movie which marked Jackie Chans first attempt to enter western cinema. ...

Between 1983 and 1985, Chan enjoyed his most prolific period of acting alongside his opera school brothers. Just after Hung and Biao had made Prodigal Son, all three appeared together in Chan's Project A and the first of Hung's original Lucky Stars trilogy, Winners and Sinners. All three films came in 1983. These were followed by Wheels on Meals in 1984, and the trio were reunited twice more for the Lucky Stars semi-sequels My Lucky Stars and Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Stars, both in 1985. Chan appeared once more with Hung in 1985, in Heart of Dragon. This was something of a golden period for Hong Kong cinema-goers, as three of the nation's most loved stars performed together on screen. In 1988, the last film to star all three together was released, Dragons Forever. Although they have expressed an interest in working together again, as a trio, it has yet to occur.

Chan is perhaps best known for performing the majority of his own stunts, which he choreographs along with his stunt team. Around the time of Project A in 1983, Chan officially formed the Jackie Chan Stunt Team, allowing him to train and work with a group of trusted martial artists and stuntmen for each of his ensuing movies. Chan stated that this makes it easier to choreograph fight scenes as he already has knowledge of his team's abilities. He and his team also undertake many of the more dangerous stunts for the other characters in his films. These are usually shot from behind or otherwise obscuring the faces so it is not obvious to the viewer. The dangerous nature of the stunts make it difficult for Chan to get insurance, particularly in the US, where his stunt work is contractually limited. Jackie Chans Project A (aka. ...

Chan holds the Guinness World Record for "Most Stunts By A Living Actor". The record notes that "no insurance company will underwrite Chan's productions, in which he performs all his own stunts".[5] Chan has been injured a number of times during his stunts, and these are sometimes played amongst the bloopers shown over the closing credits of his later movies. He came closest to death while filming Armour of God (1985), when he fell from a tree in a relatively routine stunt and fractured his skull. Guinness World Records 2007 edition front cover. ...

In his autobiography, Chan says he originally created his screen persona as a reaction to that of the martial artist Bruce Lee, and the numerous imitators who appeared before and after Lee's death (see "Bruceploitation"). Where Bruce Lee's characters were typically stern, morally upright heroes, Chan plays well-meaning, slightly foolish regular guys, often at the mercy of friends, girlfriends or families. However, his characters always triumph in the end. Bruce Lee (Traditional Chinese: ; Simplified Chinese: ; Pinyin: Lǐ Xiǎolóng; Cantonese Yale: Léih Síulùhng; November 27, 1940 – July 20, 1973) was a Chinese American martial artist, philosopher, instructor, and martial arts actor widely regarded as one of the most influential martial artists of the twentieth century. ...

In the 1990s, as well as continuing with his successful Asian film career, Chan still wanted Hollywood success and was offered two roles that would portray him as a villain, but he declined both of them as he didn't want to risk being typecast for further Hollywood roles. His friend, Sylvester Stallone, offered him the role of the criminal, Simon Phoenix, in the futuristic film Demolition Man. When he declined the role, it was taken by Wesley Snipes.

In February 1998, Leonard Ho, Chan's godfather and co-founder of Golden Harvest, died. Although a sad time for Chan, it did afford him the opportunity to take greater control of the films he chose to work on. Chan had a long-held desire to make dramatic films, but was constantly dissuaded by Ho. Ho had always argued that to ensure a successful return on his films, Chan should play to his fanbase by only doing kung fu / action movies and should avoid the love scenes that may alienate certain markets (most notably Japan). Soon after Ho's death, after 18 years with the studio, Chan released his final film for Golden Harvest, Who Am I? (1998). His first Hong Kong film after that move, Gorgeous (1999), was a romantic comedy, and whilst it still contained a few scenes demonstrating Chan's fighting abilities, they weren't the main focus of the film. In the 1980s, most of Chan's films were directed either by himself or by Sammo Hung. In the 1990s, Chan chose instead to work with a variety of successful and upcoming Hong Kong directors, as he sought to learn new techniques. They included Ringo Lam, Tsui Hark, Stanley Tong, Kirk Wong, Lau Kar-Leung and Vincent Kok.

Trademark

  • After filming Cannonball Run, he continued stuntman/director Hal Needham's style of ending each of his movies with a sequence of "out-takes" being shown. This would sometimes include accidents during filming, as in The Young Master, Armour of God, Miracles etc. This practice became so popular that when a later Chan film was released without any out-takes, the Japanese audience complained in such great numbers that the film was re-released with out-takes added back in.
  • Though action orientated, Jackie's films rarely contains any scenes of violence or death. His good natured style of acting had made him a popular figure with the children. He has always maintained that he wanted to be a good role model to the kids, which is why he has never taken the role of a villain.

Language

  • A successful acting career despite the lack of any proper education, had never disillusioned Chan to the importance of it. In fact he was ashamed of that aspect of himself so much so that he named his lack of education his greatest regret in life. He had since assisted in the building up and funding of many educational facilities around the world, like the research institute in Australia, and particularly the funding of many schools in the rural area of China, so that poorer and less fortunate kids could be educated.
  • He sings many of his own movie theme songs. Chan has had a fairly successful career as a recording artist (though not as successful as his movie career). The American versions of his movies do not typically feature the original theme songs, something which his fans find rather irritating. Chan was also featured on the Mandarin and Cantonese soundtracks for the Disney movie Mulan, which includes a video on the DVD version.
  • Since the early 1990s, Chan has always dubbed his own movies. However, in the 1970s and 80s it was not common practice in Hong Kong for stars to do their own dubbing. For much of the early part of Chan's acting career his voice dubbing was done by a single Cantonese voice-over artist, so although the voice wasn't Chan's it was at least consistent from film to film. Chan is quite fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese and often dubs himself in other languages (such as English).

In fact, filming of ‘Genghis Khan’ is also under consideration, but it must be a good script, because a lot of people have filmed this story, and the story itself is complicated and randomized, so up to now, there isn't a concrete plan yet. And [the script for] ‘Ngok Fei’ is nearly completed." He continues, “I think Yue Fei is a man with great sense of loyalty, so am I. I've been loyal to Golden Harvest, to friends and to my country!" Filming will not begin until Jackie finishes filming several other projects (including Rush Hour 3), but he is willing to work for reduced pay so he can work with his son. This is because he believes the box office results will be good. However, Director Tang Jili (唐季礼) says the role of Yue Fei could possibly go to Andy Lau.[14][15]

Jackie Chan is one of the world's biggest box-office draws, and is famous for his mind-boggling stunt work.
Jackie's incredible stunt work (accomplished at a level of difficulty that would make synchronized swimmers blush), his mixture of comedy and drama, and his formula for using lots of action with as little blood as possible, have made him a fan favorite who appeals across many age groups.
Jackie Chan (born Chan Kong-sang) can trace his origins to Hong Kong, where he was born to parents Charles and Lee-Lee Chan on April 7, 1954.
