Statham worked as a model before being introduced to director Guy Ritchie and was cast in the 1998 crime comedy Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
He worked with Ritchie again in Snatch (2000) and was cast in the lead role in the action film The Transporter (2002). He reprised the role in the sequels.
Over the years, the actor established himself as a bonafide action star with roles in several action movies, including Revolver, Crank, Death Race, The Expendables, The Mechanic, and Killer Elite.
Statham was added to the ensemble cast of the Fast and Furious franchise in 2013, playing the vengeful brother of Luke Evans' character. He would reprise the role in a sequel and a spinoff, the latter alongside Dwayne Johnson.

"I've spent all those years learning how to do certain skills, and then that competitive spirit kicks in and you want to do the stunts. Basically, it's the male competitive ego at work."
"Growing up where I did, you met a lot of colorful characters whose business was on the other side of the law, or more likely you didn't know what they were up to, and you never would. So playing those kinds of characters now, I can draw on that. The rest of it, you can practice or learn from books. But mostly, I draw from my experiences. That's all I have, you know."
He is well trained in martial arts and is an expert in kickboxing.
Has worked with Chris Evans and Jessica Biel twice; in Cellular (2004) and in London (2005).
He enjoys wakeboarding, jet skiing, wind surfing, and rock climbing.
