Statham in 2018 Jason Statham ( ; born 26 July 1967) is an English actor and martial artist. He is known for portraying characters in various action-thriller films who are typically tough, gritty, or violent. Statham has been credited for leading the resurgence of action films during the 2000s and 2010s. His film career through 2017 generated over $1.5 billion (£1.1 billion) in ticket sales, making him one of the film industry's most bankable stars.

Statham began practising Chinese martial arts, kickboxing, and karate recreationally in his youth while working at local market stalls. An avid footballer and diver, he was a member of Britain's national diving team and competed for England in the 1990 Commonwealth Games. Shortly after, he was asked to model for French Connection, Tommy Hilfiger, and Levi's in various advertising campaigns. His past history working at market stalls inspired his casting in the Guy Ritchie crime films ''Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels'' (1998) and ''Snatch'' (2000).

The commercial success of these films led Statham to star as Frank Martin in the ''Transporter'' trilogy (2002–2008). After starring in a variety of heist and action-thriller films such as ''The Italian Job'' (2003), ''Crank'' (2006), ''War'' (2007), ''The Bank Job'' (2008), ''The Mechanic'' (2011), ''Spy'' (2015), and ''Mechanic: Resurrection'' (2016), he established himself as a Hollywood leading man. However, he has also starred in commercially and critically unsuccessful films such as ''Revolver'' (2005), ''Chaos'' (2005), ''In the Name of the King'' (2007), ''13'' (2010), ''Blitz'' (2011), ''Killer Elite'' (2011), ''Hummingbird'' (2013), and ''Wild Card'' (2015). He regained commercial success as a part of the ensemble action series ''The Expendables'' (2010–2014) and the ''Fast & Furious'' franchise, playing Deckard Shaw in several films, including the spin-off ''Hobbs & Shaw'' (2019).
