Actress Awkwafina, Star Of ‘Shang-Chi,’ Says Being Part Of First Asian Superhero Film ‘Feels Historic.’

Actress Awkwafina took to the set of Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” where she faced a few firsts.

The actress told, “Good Morning America” that being a part of the first Asian superhero picture “feels historic” in addition to trying archery and learning to drive — and even drift.

“It’s been a long time coming,” she added, “and I believe I was seeking for Shang-Chi for a long period when I was growing up.” “It’s a significant film, and it’ll only contribute to the greater collection of what we refer to as Hollywood representation.”

In a video with Shang-Chi star Simu Liu, the actress, who has become widely recognized for her comic timing in earlier roles, showed off her funny side as Katy.

“I didn’t perform any stunts for this movie, not at the level Simu did,” the actress explained, “but one thing I did do was fall backward on a pole and I’d come to set every day and be like, ‘hey guys, check out my pole work.'” “By the third day, nobody was laughing.”

“I’m a pretty aggressive driver — it was incredibly fun, I enjoyed it,” Awkwafina said of her stunt driving.
Aside from her impending film role, the “Nora from Queens” actor said she’s “very pleased” with the successful TV program, which is about to enter its second season.

Disney, the parent company of ABC News and “Good Morning America,” owns Marvel Studios.
