Li Lian Jie (born April 26, 1963), better known by his stage name Jet Li, is a Chinese martial artist, actor, film producer, wushu champion, and international film star who was born in Beijing, and has taken up Singapore citizenship in 2009.

After three years of intensive training with Wu Bin, Li won his first national championship for the Beijing Wushu Team. After retiring from wushu at age 17, he went on to win great acclaim in China as an actor making his debut with the film Shaolin Temple (1982). He went on to star in many critically acclaimed martial arts epic films, most notably the Once Upon A Time In China series, in which he portrayed folk hero Wong Fei-hung.

Li's first role in a Hollywood film was as a villain in Lethal Weapon 4 (1998), but his first Hollywood film leading role was in Romeo Must Die (2000). He has gone on to star in many Hollywood action films, most recently co-starring in The Expendables (2010) with Sylvester Stallone, in The Forbidden Kingdom (2008) with Jackie Chan, and as the title character villain in The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor (2008) opposite Brendan Fraser. He also appeared in the Hong Kong film Ocean Heaven (2010), directed and written by Xue Xiaolu.

    As a child I watched all his movies I was hooked. He brought Kungfu to America like Bruce Lee. Lin xeng xin reminds me of Jet Li they portray characteristic of a Gentleman, very traditional and charistmatic on screen I loved to see him fight taken the bad guys it was always captivating.

    I grew up with his movies and I just love him. Handsome man, humble, generous and adorable.There are not many action stars that look so elegant, charismatic and majestic on screen, his martial art is just beautiful. I love watching his movies, and he's actually one of the few action stars that can act as well.
    He really looks sick in his latest pictures. Please get well soon and live a long, healthy and content life. Luv you, Jet!

      In East Asia, the person's surname usually comes first. So the site has probably tried to conform to the Asian style of writing someone's name, I presume.

      Yeah, he was called "Jet" during his earlier days when he competed in national tournaments because of his immense speed. The singaporean media later picked it up and it became his official stage name.

      Only Asian (or should I say only Taiwanese, Korean, Japanese and Chinese) dramas and movies are listed here.
