Unlike her peers who enjoy playing with toys, nine-year-old Jesse Jane McParland prefers to "play" with swords.

Despite her age, Jesse Jane is already a world champion kick boxer, with an astonishing 117 martial arts titles under her belt.

Her first movie Martial Arts Kid, also starring Cynthia Rothrock and Don 'The Dragon' Wilson, will be released this year, and in July she will start filming Awakening with teen heartthrob Zac Efron.

She is also hoping to add the title Britain's Got Talent winner to her collection after impressing the judges and audience with her incredible sword-wielding audition.
