3.Entry into Hollywood
Since childhood, she has been a die-hard fan of the MCU series. She randomly came across a group chat where there was a need for an actress who has command of two languages (Mandarin and English). It was accepted by her as a challenge. She believed that this role was made for her and that she could bring diversity to the cinematic universe. In an interview, she told that at first, she did not tell her parents that she has signed NDA with Marvel Cinematic Universe but when she told them they were surprised and did not believe it.

4.Journey during Shoot
She has fulfilled one requirement of the role that was speaking both languages i.e. English and Mandarin but for this role, she needs to have command of martial arts which unfortunately she did not have. She said that she had a hard time during training for martial arts, but she enjoyed it. She had to do early training compared to her fellow actors due to a lack of martial arts background. The training required hard work and extreme workouts. On the first day, she was very excited that she will get her trainer, a proper meal plan, and much more. Afterwards, she realized that it was not much simple. She had sore legs and arms, even at one time she was so tired that she did not want to talk to anyone. She also had cravings for fried chicken and other junk items then her partner in crime(Simu) took her for a cheat meal. The most difficult training was the rope kunai dart shadow training. She trained for 4 months to master the art of rope kunai dart shadow.
In the movie, there are fighting scenes with Simu (who played the role of her brother in the movie). She once punched him hard in the face accidentally. It is not her favourite memory, but she enjoyed every moment that was spent on the set. This moment was caught by the camera. She has this clip shared on Instagram.
She also added that working with Tony (who played the role of her father in the movie) was her dream come true. Tony has impressed her in many ways. She admired Tony’s devotion to work. He has also helped her with many things on set.

Marvel has proved very lucky for her. She found her soul mate while working on the set. She got both fame and a spouse on the set.

Fate brought them together when he decided to pursue acting. She happily told me that when I entered the movie I was single but did not leave the set as single. They did not propose to each other, but rather they had a vibe and they just decided to go for the wedding. They had no preparations for the wedding.
