Fala Chen, who plays Shang-Chis mom Ying Li, (who also happens to be a new mama!) enjoys that her daughter will “mature enjoying films in where she sees Super Heroes and characters who look like her. That reality alone makes me really pleased as a moms and dad.”

Chen matured in China before transferring to America, and as she describes, “I did see films with faces like mine, however I never ever truly grew up seeing a Super Hero because that just didnt exist, an Asian Super Hero. When I was maturing then later in America, I couldnt discover a Super Hero that I want to dress up as.”

With Shang-Chi, “now not only we have one, but we have multiple characters that kids can grow up enjoying,” continues Chen.
