R.I.P. Alan Sit Chun-Wai, Hong Kong stuntman from Jackie Chan films

If the name doesn’t ring a bell, the face will. The long-haired stuntman known for his parts in Rumble in the Bronx and Thunderbolt passed away on July 17th, 2011. This post comes a bit late but I came across some of his work and thought it a shame that little had been mentioned of his death.

Alan’s most memorable role was in Rumble in the Bronx, where he stood off against Jackie in the film’s major fight scenes. Below are the best ones, with Alan doing some great visual gags. You can tell Jackie trusted him, which is the gold standard for any stuntman. Alan also headed up the mechanic shop fight in Thunderbolt. A comphrensive list of his films can be seen here. R.I.P Alan Sit, you’ll be missed.

  1. It is so sad to learn about his death today. I knew him since we were kids.He was a great person. He was a great friend and loved by many. He started his career when he was 16 in Hong Kong. He was chosen among 2000 candidates as he was very handsome and tall. He loved his job ever since. He started working to support his family as he was the elder son. He has 2 younger brothers and 1 younger sister. He was loved and respected by his family too. He was married to his wife for over 20 years.
    He was always proud that he was working with Jacky Chan.
