Etta Ng Chok Lam is best known for being the estranged daughter of Jackie Chan, the result of his affair with Elaine Wu. Etta stirred a lot of controversy online after releasing a YouTube video in which she accuses her mother of homophobia.
Early life, family, educational background
Etta Ng Chok Lam was born on 19 November 1999, in Hong Kong. She was mostly raised by her mother, Elaine; Jackie Chan admitted everything about his relationship with the former beauty pageant winner, except responsibility for the child. Although Etta was raised solely by her mother, the two didn’t have a good relationship, Etta even claiming that her mother abused her.
After Etta came out as a lesbian, her mother along most of her relatives disapproved of and disowned her. As a consequence, she dropped out of high school and was even homeless for a while.
Little is known about Etta’s professional life. Aside from working her way to social media celebrity, we do not know whether she has another job or not.
Personal life, father Jackie Chan and wife Andi Autumn
Because she’s lesbian, Chinese society frowned upon her, and nobody helped her. In a YouTube video she posted, she mentions that she had to live under bridges because nobody would offer her any form of aid.
Her family turned their back on her, as well as the local LGBTQ community, so she had to resort to asking for help online.
Regarding her relationship with her father, she stated in an interview in 2015 that she would never recognize Jackie as her father. Although he was unfair to her, she doesn’t feel resentment or hold any grudge against him, but concluded her statement saying that she doesn’t ever want to meet him.
World-renowned Jackie Chan, born Chan Kong-sang, is a Chinese actor, stuntman and director, best known for his unusual fighting style which is often both humorous and dangerous.
He first became famous in Asia, and then he brought kung fu films into mainstream in the US as well.
He was born into a poor family in Hong Kong. His parents moved to Canberra, Australia when he was six, but he was soon sent back to China to attend a very strict boarding school, which trained young people for jingxi. Until he was 17, he studied acrobatics, martial arts, mime and singing, skills which were essential in his later success.
Lo Wei, an independent film producer, hoped to find Bruce Lee’s successor, so he cast Jackie in several kung fu movies between 1976 and 1978. His first successful movies came only later, in which he developed his comedic fighting style: ‘Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow’ and ‘Drunken Master’. In 1979 he wrote his first film – ‘The Fearless Hyena’ – in which he also starred.
The next year, he partnered with production company Golden Harvest, which he eventually transformed into Hong Kong’s largest film conglomerate, for the movie ‘The Young Master’. Afterwards, he tried to move into the international movie scene by switching from traditional martial arts to modern action and adventure movies. Thus, his stunt choreography and directing talent was showcased in the movies ‘Project A’ in 1983, and ‘Police Story’ in 1985. As his stunts became increasingly more dangerous, he almost died from a fall on the set of ‘Armour of God’ in 1986, which impaired his hearing and fractured his skull.
In the early 1990s, Jackie Chan finally became a well-known presence in the American movie market. In 1995 he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from MTV, and by the end of the same year ‘Rumble in the Bronx’, a blockbuster, was released in the US, as well as some of his early work done in Hong Kong. His US success continued with the release of ‘Rush Hour’ in 1998, in which Jackie starred alongside Chris Tucker; they later released two sequels in 2001 and 2007.
In the past two decades, Jackie’s most notable roles have been in ‘The Forbidden Kingdom’ in 2008, ‘Karate Kid’ in 2010, and ‘The Foreigner’ in 2017.
He also did an astounding job as a voice actor in the popular animation film ‘Kung Fu Panda’ series, ‘The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature’, and in ‘The LEGO Ninjago Movie’. In 2016, Jackie Chan became the first Chinese actor to obtain an honorary Academy Award for his outstanding international career.
Andi Autumn is a Chinese online celebrity, born under the zodiac sign of Scorpio on 3 November 1987, known for her Barbie-like appearance and style. She has developed a large audience on Instagram, which has over 110,000 followers, but she also posts YouTube videos in which she acts like a doll.
After graduating from Westdale Secondary School, she went to McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Prior to meeting Etta Ng Chok Lam, her current partner, she had a relationship with Shui Hing Ho in 2008.
