English actor Jason Statham is the latest celebrity to arrive into our shores.

This is after the Shirebrook, Derbyshire, 49-year-old jetted in via an Air New Zealand flight yesterday.

He is believed to be spending some quality time here in a well known island property.

He is also reported to be in the company of two other good friends.

A big fan of the actor, Inise Kalouarai who met the actor at the Nadi International Airport was overwhelmed.

She asked the former model and competitive driver for a selfie, which he approved.

“He looks cool as he did not shy away or refused the selfie,” she said.

“This is a good memory for me and it is on my Facebook page too. Welcome to Fiji Mr Transporter.”

Mr Statham is best known for his roles in the Guy Ritchie crime films such as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), Snatch(2000), and Revolver (2005).

He has also appeared in films such as the action thriller The Transporter trilogy (2002–2008), the heist film The Italian Job (2003), the black comedy-action film Crank (2006), the action film War (2007), the science fiction action thriller Death Race (2008), the crime film The Bank Job (2008), and the action series The Expendables (2010–2014).

Last year Mr Statham starred in the latest entry in the The Fast and the Furious franchise, Furious 7, and is set to reprise his role in the upcoming film Fast 8.

He is well known for usually performing his own stage combat and stunts,  and is noted for being typecast as an antihero.
