Jason Statham is an English actor. Typecast as an antihero, he is known for action-thriller films and portraying tough characters. Statham began practising martial arts in his youth while working at local market stalls. 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). He gained more success as a part of the The Expendables (2010–2014) and the Fast & Furious franchise.
Jason Statham has been praised for leading the resurgence of action films during the 2000s and 2010s. According to a BBC News report, his film career from 2002 to 2017 generated an estimated $1.5 billion (£1.1 billion) in ticket sales, making him one of the film industry’s most bankable stars.
Statham played the lead in the 2018 action-horror film The Meg. In order to prepare for scenes wherein he swims in shark-infested waters, Statham swam with bull sharks in Fiji. The film would go on to gross $527.8 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing U.S.-Chinese co-production of all time.
