Jackie Chan

Jackie Chan MBE is one of the most recognisable and well-known faces in world cinema.

He's a favourite of the British Armed Forces thanks not just to his popular movies but to his fantastic fitness work ethic.

In this rare archive interview, Forces Radio BFBS broadcaster Hal Stewart spoke to Jackie about his greatest achievement in cinema and the iconic stunt-filled 'Police Story'.

He also chats training regimes and delivers his message of support to those serving in the British Military:

Now 64 years old, the Hong Kong born superstar can list a range of titles to his ever increasing and overly impressive C.V.

He has been a martial artist, actor, director, producer, screenwriter, action choreographer and singer.

His most memorable job for anyone who has ever witnessed any of his early work though has to be his work as a stunt performer.

Hal Stewart, who conducted the short interview with Jackie in the mid-2010's said:

"I knew I wouldn't have a long time to talk with him, he's such a busy man but he's so kind, generous and eager to please. He couldn't have been nicer. They say never meet your heroes but this time it all turned out perfectly. He even indulged this movie nerd when I told him my favourite of all his films was a niche kung-fu flick from 1978!"

You can hear Hal broadcast on Forces Radio BFBS every weekday 1-4pm on DAB+ in the UK, online, the BFBS radio app, freesat786 and Sky 0211.
