The fact that Jackie Chan is not only an actor and singer should have become clear to the last European, at the latest after he contributed the title song to his blockbuster “The Foreigner” with Pierce Brosnan. Now Jackie Chan wants to conquer the musical stages of the world with a play based on his life.
That actor Jackie Chan is a fan of fast cars is proven by his blockbuster “Thunderbolt” from 1995, in which he has to win a race to save his family. There are also great chase scenes with luxury cars in the new film “Kung Fu Yoga” (2017). But Jackie Chan’s career as a racing driver began in 1984 on a semi-professional level thanks to Mitsubishi.
There were some key characters in Jackie Chan’s life who paved his way to becoming a superstar. But none of them had as much influence on Jackie Chan’s success as his best friend, manager and mentor Willie Chan. The sad news of his death hit fans and friends hard.
In the West, Jackie Chan’s image is cultivated as a cheerful, naive, but funny action comedy star. It is also known that he has been married since 1982 and has a son named Jaycee who is also active in the entertainment industry. But as in any good family, the Chans had a crisis when it became known in 1999 that Jackie Chan was going to be a father again.
