Washington: Hollywood actor Awkwafina, who is generally known for her comical timing in films, recently shared some interesting insights regarding her character in the upcoming Marvel film ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings’, where she has played a different role.
In the upcoming movie, proving her versatility, Awkwafina portrays the character of Katy. Decoding her role, the talented actor said, “Katy is what I would love to be as a friend, which is loyal. I think she really trusts Shang-Chi. At the same time, in a world where he is wary about who he lets into his life, she doesn’t really judge him for his past and trusts him.”
Awkwafina further added, “She’s a really good friend, and also useless — I think there might be some luck involved in certain aspects of her life. So it’s fun that she gets to tag along. She gets some action. There is a pole scene … well, it’s scaffolding. You know, we’re not in the club.”
