The son of a lounge singer/street vendor and dancer, Jason Statham’s childhood was filled with street performing and sports. A talent for diving landed him on Britain’s National Squad for 12 years and earned him 12th place at the 1992 World Championships. He was spotted by a modeling agency scout while training in London and worked for French Connection. Around the same time, he was introduced to Guy Ritchie who cast Statham in his first two films, “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” and “Snatch,” which opened the door to Hollywood. His martial arts training allowed him to perform most of his own stunts in “The Transporter” franchise (2001, 2005, 2008) as well as other action hits like “The One,” “Crank,” “The Bank Job,” “The Italian Job,” “The Mechanic” and “The Expendables” series. Statham, who dated model Kelly Brook for seven years until her dalliance with Billy Zane ended their relationship in 2005, is currently involved with Victoria’s Secret model/ “Transformers” actress Rosie Huntington-Whitely. They made their relationship public at the 2010 Coachella Music Festival. After a small cameo at the end of “Fast & Furious 6,” he will move into the main antagonist’s role in the seventh installment of the street racing franchise.
