'Wu Assassins' star Tzi Ma on 'Superman of Chinatown' Mr Young and season 2 of the Netflix show
Based on the overwhelmingly positive responses that the show has received, there is a huge potential for 'Wu Assassins' to be an iconic show that people will talk about for a long time
The first season of Netflix’s 'Wu Assasins' managed to catch and hold the attention of many Netflix viewers, who are now waiting impatiently for the green light for season two. As the show's star Tzi Ma puts it, with 10 episodes, the series has only got its feet wet, it leaves a lot more to be explored.
Based on the overwhelmingly positive response that the show has received, there is a huge potential for 'Wu Assassins' to be an iconic show that people will talk about for a long time. Not only is it action-packed, but the series also offers something for everyone, and most importantly you will find yourself rooting for at least one of the characters.
“You will fall in love with at least one character from the show because I believe they are so different from one another with a lot of depth. There are the honest ones, the mysterious ones, the charming ones, the vulnerable ones, the beautiful ones, the powerful ones, the socially redeeming ones, etc., etc. We leave no stone unturned,” he tells MEA WorldWide (MEAWW).
Mr. Young, the character that Ma plays on the show, for example, is one that most people who know Chinatown instantly recognize. "He’s the superman of Chinatown," gushes Ma, adding how he is always about “truth, justice, and the American way. A Vietnam war Vet. Kai is drawn to Mr. Young because he will always give him an honest answer. Mr. Young is also the ordinary face of Chinatown that tourists often overlook.”
Ma, who has a whole wishlist for Mr. Young, hopes to return to his Wu family for more seasons, revealing what sets 'Wu Assassins' apart from the other TV shows that he has worked on is the number of Asian American actors in the show who are series regulars. “That’s kinda exciting isn’t it?” he asks.
He further talks about being in a setting where everyone has a shorthand, especially when it comes to martial arts. He explains, “Even when I don’t have any fight scenes, I know what they have to go through and it’s not all fun and games. Doing these fight scenes are like doing triple workout days times 10. You will need to sit in the tub for a bit.”
Fans are definitely appreciating all the hard work and rooting for the show pretty intensely. The first season of the series is available for viewing on the Netflix library.
