| One of the most popular film personalities in the world, Jackie Chan came from a poverty-stricken Hong Kong family — so poor, claims Chan, that he was almost sold in infancy to a wealthy British couple. As it turned out, Chan became his family's sole support. Enrolled in the Chinese Opera Research Institute at the age of seven, he spent the next decade in rigorous training for a career with the Peking Opera, excelling in martial arts and acrobatics. Billed as Cheng Lung, Chan entered films in his mid-teens, appearing in 25 productions before his 20th birthday. Starting out as a stunt man, Chan was promoted to stardom as the potential successor to the late Bruce Lee. In his earliest starring films, he was cast as a stone-cold serious type, determined to avenge Lee's death. Only when he began playing for laughs did Chan truly attain full celebrity status. Frequently referred to as the Buster Keaton of kung-fu, Chan's outlook on life is a lot more optimistic than Keaton's, but in his tireless devotion to the most elaborate of sight gags and the most awe-inspiring of stunts (many of which have nearly cost him his life), Chan is Keaton incarnate. From 1978's The Young Master onward, Chan has usually been his own director and screenwriter. His best Hong Kong-produced films include the nonstop action-fests Project A (1983), Police Story (1985), Armour of God (1986), and the Golden Horse Award-winning Crime Story (1993) — not to mention the multiple sequels of each of the aforementioned titles. Despite his popularity in Europe and Asia, Chan was for many years unable to make a dent in the American market. He tried hard in such films as The Big Brawl (1980) and the first two Cannonball Run flicks, but American filmgoers just weren't buying.At long last, Chan mined U.S. box-office gold with 1996's Rumble in the Bronx, a film so exhilarating that audiences never noticed those distinctly Canadian mountain ranges looming behind the "Bronx" skyline. Chan remained the most popular Asian actor with the greatest potential to cross over into the profitable English-speaking markets, something he again demonstrated when he co-starred with Chris Tucker in the 1998 box-office hit Rush Hour. In 2000 Chan had another success on his hands with Shanghai Noon, a comedy Western in which he starred as an Imperial Guard dispatched to the American West to rescue the kidnapped daughter (Lucy Liu) of the Chinese Emporer.

- Sing Lung means "Already a Dragon."
- Prefers to do action films with strong humour streaks and physical clowning like Buster Keaton.
- In the act of performing his own stunts, he has broken his nose three times, his ankle once, most of the fingers in his hand, both cheekbones and his skull.
- Not only does he do his own stunts, but he is a lead-from-the-front kind of guy and expects the actors & actresses in his movies to do their own stunts as well.
- Has a son, Jaycee Chan (b. December, 3, 1982).
- Has a daughter with former Miss Asia (Hong Kong), Elaine Ng.
- Most often dubs his own voice for the English release of his Asian films. He also dubs his Asian films in Mandarin.

- In 1989, he was awarded an M.B.E.(Member of the Order of the British Empire) for his services to entertainment.

- Spokesmodel of the "got milk?" campaign.
- Has a permanent hole in his head from a stunt accident.
- Admits he did Cannonball Run II (1984) just to fulfill his contract with Warner Brothers.
- His Opera Academy "brothers" include Sammo Hung Kam-Bo, Biao Yuen, Corey Yuen, Wah Yuen and Yuen Man Meng.
- He has his own stuntman team, known as the Sing Ga Ban, or Jackie Chan Stuntman Association. Members of the team appear as extras in Jackie's films. Members include Andy Kai Chung Cheng, Chung Chi Li (Nicky Li) and Bradley James Allan.

- Despite the minimal formal education he received, he was made an honorary doctor of social science of the Hong Kong Baptist University, and an honorary fellow of the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts.
- In his action scenes, his punches and kicks actually connect with their targets. He has his actors wear special padding in their feet and body to prevent serious injury.
- Has a great, long lasting relationship with Mitsubishi Motors. The company has donated many of their automobiles for his films.
- Underwent plastic surgery in 1976 to re-shape his eyelids, giving him a more "Western" appearance. The final film with the old-look Chan is Shao Lin mu ren xiang (1976).
- His parents worked at the American Embassy in Canberra, Australia. Jackie lived with them there for a while after one of his attempt in the movie business fell through.
- His stunt team is trained to perform the way he does. They must match him move for move, speed for speed, and so on. Because of this, many other actors have trouble working with him. For example, Ron Smoorenberg was doubled in "Who Am I?" (1998) because Jackie couldn't keep up with his movements and didn't trust him.
- According to Jackie Chan's production diary on the official Shanghai Knights (2003) website, the producers of Shanghai Knights wanted to throw him a birthday party, but he asked them not to since his mother had recently died and Chinese tradition dictates that you should wait 3 to 12 months after a death to stop the mourning period. The producers threw the party anyway, and Chan did not object because, he said, "it is an important part of the American culture to celebrate birthdays."
- He sings in the Chinese version of Mulan (1998). He sings the Chinese version of "I'll make a man out of you".
