Action hero Jackie Chan
flew to Australia on Saturday to attend his father's funeral - six years after the death of his mother. The Rush Hour 3
star's father Charlie died in a Hong Kong hospital on February 26 after battling with prostate cancer. He was 93.
Chan brought his father's body to Canberra, Australia - where his parents had lived together - so he could be laid to rest beside his mother Lee Lee Chan, who died in 2002.
Hundreds of mourners including the U.S. ambassador and Chinese deputy envoy attended the funeral - messages of support were read out from former U.S. vice president Al Gore
and film director Quentin Tarantino
The movie star and his son Jason led mourners from the service carrying a large photo of his father before traveling to the cemetery, where roses and fishing mementoes were placed alongside the casket.
He said, "It's a hard day. I loved my father so much because he did so much for me when I was young. We had a very poor family and he left Hong Kong to support himself. He was just the greatest father for me."
The stunt man's father lived in Australia for more than 40 years - but spent most of his final years in Hong Kong with his actor son following the death of his wife.
