Who is Jason Statham?

Jason Statham is an English actor and film producer. Typecast as an antihero, he is known for his action-thriller roles and portraying tough, irredeemable, and machiavellian characters. He was born on 26 July 1967 in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, England.

Statham began practising kung fu, kickboxing, and karate recreationally in his youth while working at local market stalls. He was selected by  Britain’s national diving team to compete in the 1990 Commonwealth Games for being an avid footballer and diver. Shortly after, he was asked to model for French Connection, Tommy Hilfiger, and Levi’s in various advertising campaigns. Statham’s past professional history working in market stalls inspired his casting in the Guy Ritchie crime films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) and Snatch(2000).

The commercial success of these films led him to star as Frank Martin in The Transporter trilogy (2002-08). After starring in a variety of heist and action thriller films such as The Italian Job (2003), Crank (2006), War (2007), The Bank Job (2008), The Mechanic (2011), Spy (2015), and Mechanic; Resurrection (2016), he established himself as a leading actor in Hollywood. However, he has also starred in such commercially and critically unsuccessful films as Revolver (2005), Chaos (2005), In the Name of the King(2007) by Uwe Boll, 13 (2010), Blitz (2011), Killer Elite (2011), Hummingbird (2013) and Wild Card (2015).

He found further commercial success as a part of the ensemble action series The Expendables (2010-14) and the Fast & Furious franchise. In the latter, he has played his character, Deckard Shaw, in Fast &Furious (2017) and in the spin-off, Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw (2019) which is also his debut and only work as a film co-producer.
