Age is clearly just a number for action star Jackie Chan, who despite turning 62 in April this year, continues doing his own stunts in blockbuster action flicks.
Most recently, the martial artist and actor stunned the Internet when a published video showed him filming a fight scene atop the Sydney Opera House.
In the video shot on Aug 3, Chan can be seen sparring with Australian actress Tess Haubrich 67 metres above Sydney Harbour. Both actors did not appear to be wearing any harnesses at the time.
The Hong Kong star appeared undaunted by the building's height, and was spotted laughing and taking photos in the wind.
Chan and Haubrich were filming a scene for Bleeding Steel, which also features actors Nana Ouyang, Show Luo and Erica Xia-Hou.
The new Chinese action flick is expected to be the most expensive Chinese movie production ever to be filmed in Australia, Xinhua reported.
At a press conference held in Sydney on July 28, Chan said that he used to live in Australia after moving there with his parents at the age of 13.
Xinhua reported that Chan recalled how he had to learn the English language from scratch, and that his teacher had initially named him Steven.
The name Jack was later given to him when he started work at a construction site. He later changed his name to Jackie when a Feng Shui master told him it would bring better luck.
Since then, Chan has become one of the world's most famous action stars, and has starred in over 250 films during his 54 years in show-business.
