Jet Li - autographs
Jet Li is a Chinese-born American actor, film producer, martial artist, and director who has starred in some of the most popular action films of all time. He was born on April 26th, 1963 in Beijing, China to parents who were both performers in the Peking Opera. When Jet was just two years old, his family relocated to Singapore so that he could receive better training in martial arts. Jet began training in wushu at the age of eight and went on to become a five-time national champion in the sport.
Jet’s first film role was as a young Shaolin monk in the 1982 film, “The Shaolin Temple.” Jet’s performance in the film caught the attention of action director Jackie Chan, who then cast Jet in his 1984 film, “The Protector.” Jet’s martial arts skills and screen presence led to him starring in a number of other popular action films throughout the 1980s and 1990s, such as “Fist of Legend,” “Black Mask,” and “Romeo Must Die.”
