    Datuk Fang Shilong was born April 7, 1954 as Chan Kong-sang and known professionally as Jackie Chan, is an actor, director, martial artist and stuntman from Hong Kong known for his burlesque acrobatic fighting style, his comedic timing and his innovative stunts, which he usually performs on his own. Chan has been acting since the 1960s, appearing in over 150 films. He is one of the most popular action movie stars of all time.

    Chan is one of the world’s most recognizable and influential film personalities, and he has gained a large global following in the eastern and western hemispheres. He has received stars on the Hong Kong Avenue of Stars and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It has been featured in various pop songs, cartoons, movies, and video games. He is an opera-trained singer and is also a star of Cantopop and Mandopop, having released a number of music albums and sung many theme songs for the films he has appeared in.

    Chan is also a world famous philanthropist and was named one of Forbes Magazine’s Top 10 Most Charitable Celebrities. In 2004, film scholar Andrew Willis said Chan was perhaps the “world’s most recognized movie star”. In 2015, Forbes estimated his net worth at $ 350 million, and in 2016 he was the second highest-paid actor in the world.

    Since 2013, Chan has been a pro-Communist politician, member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. After Hong Kong’s electoral reform in 2021, Chan became a member of the electoral committee and was able to vote for the chief executive.

    In 1982, Chan married Joan Lin, a Taiwanese actress. Their son, singer and actor Jaycee Chan, was born the same year. Chan’s extramarital affair with Elaine Ng Yi-Lei gave birth to a daughter named Etta Ng Chok Lam, who was born on January 18, 1999. It turned into a scandal in the media. Although he allegedly gave Elaine HK $ 70,000 each month for her living expenses and HK $ 600,000 when she moved to Shanghai, the transactions were later declared non-existent by her lawyer. Although he regrets the outcome of the case, Chan said he had “made only one mistake that a lot of men in the world are committing.” During the incident, Elaine said she would take care of her daughter without Chan.

    Chan speaks Cantonese, Mandarin, English and American Sign Language and also speaks some German, Korean, Japanese, Spanish and Thai. Chan is passionate about football and supports the Hong Kong National Football Team, the England National Football Team and Manchester City. He is a fan of the Italian duo Bud Spencer and Terence Hill, from which he drew inspiration for his films.
