Jet Li


Jet Li was Wushu (a martial art) national champion in China several times. He got his first part as a shaolin disciple in the film Shaolin Temple. His first attempt at directing, Born to Defense (1988) (Born to defend), met with failure. It was good film regardless, because it was the first time Li directed and had more realistic fight scenes.
