Jackie Chan gives his first public talk in Australia

Hollywood actor and Kung Fu master Jackie Chan will be talking about his career and life in a one-off talk at Sydney Opera House. Chan is taking a break from filming sci-fi thriller Bleeding Steel, the largest-budget Chinese production to be shot mainly in Australia since Mr Nice Guy 20 years ago.

Chan will run through his craft and movie career from New Fist of Fury to Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon. The all-round performer has been singing and acting since age seven, and now he’s an ambassador for UNICEF/UNAIDS and the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation, which supports young people in Hong Kong. In 2008, he funded and opened the Jackie Chan Science Centre in Canberra as a tribute to his late parents, who lived and worked for 46 years in Canberra.
