Sarina asked Simu what it was like finding out he had bagged the role of bad-a** superhero Shang Chi.

Simu described the whole experience as, "pretty insane."

He revealed he was in the middle of shooting season four of his show Kim's Convenience when he found out.

The Hollywood actor was supposed to keep it a secret, but he really struggled with this.

Eventually, he ended up pulling his Kim's Convenience co-stars into his dressing room one by one to tell them the good news.

Later in the interview, Simu spoke about how exhausting a shoot day on Shang Chi was.

"There are a lot of stunts in this movie," he said.

"I always say, if an ordinary human being had gone through what Shaun goes through... they would be in a hospital."

"Like dead or in a coma or something and I feel like at least somewhere along the way, a bone would have been broken..."

Sarina also caught up with Fala Chen who plays Jiang Li in Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

She shared how she felt watching the film on the big screen; why being a part of this film meant cutting her honeymoon short; and how she continues to question her place in Hollywood as an Asian American actress.
