Chad Stahelski Wiki: Early Life, Parents, and EducationAlthough he became a star in the last few years, Chad has successfully managed to keep information about his early life hidden from public eyes including the identity of his parents, and whether he has any siblings or not.

Before he became a stuntman, Chad was a part of the Inosanto Martial Arts Academy in California, teaching Jeet Kune Do/Jun Fan.

Chad appeared for the first time in front of the camera in 1992 in the film “Mission of Justice”, but the following year, when Brandon Lee was involved in an accidental shooting on the set of the film “The Crow”, Chad was asked to fill in as a stunt double, as he was Brandon’s trainer and knew how he walked and moved. The film was released in 1994 and became a complete success which encouraged Chad to continue working as a stuntman, and since then he has recorded a number of successful appearances in films that became classics. It was in 1999 that he collaborated with Keanu Reeves for the first time on the film “Matrix”, and the two would later often renew their association, including in “Constantine” (2005), and recent films about John Wick. He gradually built a name for himself, and in addition to actual stunt work, he became a stunt and fight coordinator, and stunt supervisor.
