Bio
Jet Li (LI Jet / 李连杰) is a Hong Kong actor, born on Friday, April 26, 1963, in Peking, China.
Trivia
  • Won Chinese national championship in the acrobatic martial art wushu when he was 11; his prize was a trip to Washington D.C. to meet President Richard Nixon.
  • He studies English with a tutor for 4 hours a day.
  • Jet & wife Nina Li Chi became parents to a 6 lb. 13 oz. daughter, Jane. [19 April 2000]
  • Was originally cast in the role of the character Li Mu Bai in Ang Lee's martial arts blockbuster Wo hu cang long (2000) (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), but turned it down. The decision was prompted by a promise to his wife Nina Li Chi that he would not work while she was pregnant. The role of Li Mu Bai went to actor Yun-Fat Chow. Li said this himself during an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (1992) promoting Kiss of the Dragon (2001).
  • Other than providing voice-overs for Kit Yun in Rise to Honor (2003) (VG), he also did the motion-capture for his fight scenes.
  • Injured his foot while escaping the tsunami that followed a 9.0 earthquake in the Indian Ocean. Li and his four year old daughter were on vacation in the Maldives on December 26th, 2004. The two were in the lobby of their hotel when the wave came ashore. Scooping up his daughter and running for higher ground, a piece of furniture hit his foot, causing the injury.
  • Has claimed his upcoming martial arts film Huo Yuan Jia (2006) (Fearless) will be his last period kung-fu film, and that he will concentrate on other matters in the future. One of those matters is apparently a documentary about Buddhism.
  • His Mandarin name is Li Lianjie. His Cantonese name is Lei Lin-Git (or Lee Lin-Kit).
  • Has played both real life legend Huo Yuan Jia (in Huo Yuan Jia (2006)) and his semi-fictional student Chen Zhen (in Jing wu ying xiong (1994)).
  • Sustained bruised ribs while filming the fight stunts with Anthony Anderson for Romeo Must Die (2000).
  • One of 105 people invited to join AMPAS in 2008.
  • Chinese Director Jing Wong worked with Jet on 4 films. They were: Last Hero in China (1993), Kung Fu Cult Master, (1993), The New Legend of Shaolin (1994) and High Risk (1995).
  • Worked with Chinese Director Tsui Hark on 5 films. This was: The Master (1989), Once Upon a Time in China, Once Upon a Time in China 2, Once Upon a Time in China 3, Black Mask.
  • Has played both an attempted assassin of the First Emperor of China (in "Ying Xiong"), and the First Emperor of China. (In Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor).
