This week actor Lewis Tan returns to the podcast to talk about his role as a lover and a fighter in Wu Assassins: Fistful of Vengeance. (Netflix). Tan is best known for his roles on AMC’s Into the Badlands, Marvel’s Iron Fist, and of course, his starring role as Cole Young, the descendant of Scorpion in the 2021 Mortal Kombat reboot.
In this interview, we discuss why Netflix decided to shorten Wu 2 to a movie instead of a series, the complexities of shooting action in a pandemic, and what it was like baring it all to film his first love scene ever, with Queen of Sono star Pearl Thusi. (I also get to the bottom of what happened to Jenny).
Tan spoke to me via Zoom from Budapest, Hungary, where he is currently shooting Shadow and Bone Season 2.
