He was raised in Hong Kong an only child, but with four half-siblings, by his father Charles and his mother Lee-Lee who fled amidst the Chinese Civil War. The family was very poor, and Charles and his wife often had to borrow money just to go to the doctor.

Jackie studied at Nah-Hwa Primary School, but after failing the first year, his parents decided that he would be homeschooled. In 1960 when he was six, his father moved to Canberra in Australia, after being invited to work as a head cook for the Chinese Embassy, and so Jackie was thus sent to attend the China Drama Academy in Beijing. He excelled in acrobatics and martial arts, and eventually obtained a black belt in hapkido under Jin Pal Kim, a grand master; some of the other styles Jackie has practiced include Jeet Kune Do, Tae Kwon Do and Karate. Upon matriculating in 1972, he moved to Canberra to be with his parents, enrolled at Dickson College and worked at a construction site. On the site, a colleague builder called Jack took care of Jackie who was then nicknamed ‘Little Jack’ before it was shortened to ‘Jackie’ thus his professional name.

He appeared in his first movie “Big and Little Wong tin Bar” aged five, thanks to his parents who drove him to the audition. Jackie began attracting attention aged 17, when he performed stunts in movies which starred Bruce Lee such as the hits “Enter the Dragon” and “Fist of Fury”. He became famous after he played the lead character in the 1978 martial arts action comedy movie “Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow”, which was also the beginning of the movie genre ‘comedy kung fu’. After his lead role in the 1978 action comedy martial arts film “Drunken Master”, Jackie was already known worldwide. He went on to star in various critically acclaimed movies, such as the 1985 “Police Story” which turned into a franchise, the 1995 martials arts drama “Rumble in the Bronx”, and the 1998 action comedy “Rush Hour”, which made Jackie a Hollywood star.

Jackie has been very active in the film industry to this day, and revealed in 2018, his movies have grossed over $5 billion worldwide.

He’s also a successful musician, who has been performing since the ‘80s and has released around 20 albums in several languages, including English, Japanese and Cantonese. At the closing ceremony of the 2008 Summer Olympics, Jackie sang the song “Hard to Say Goodbye”, together with Wakin Chay, Liu Huan and Andy Lau.

He married the popular Taiwanese actress Joan Lin in 1982, and she gave birth to their son Yaycee Chan in the same year. The two faced issues after Etta was born, however, Jackie and Joan decided to go on living together, and not to split.
