There is very little diversity in major blockbuster films and even less if you just factor in the number of Asians in lead roles so it's amazing when an Asian role is opened up for Asian actors to be considered for.
Kris Wu is a 26-year old actor, model, singer-songwriter who is a pretty big name in China. But he was also raised in Canada which is why he's fluent in English. His 5 released movies have been box office hits in China and he has roles in upcoming Hollywood films namely xXx: Return of Xander Cage and Valerian City of a Thousand Planets. He is successful in several fields which shows his versatility and adaptability, for example: he has walked the runway for a major fashion brand, Burberry and played basketball in the NBA Celebrity Game. He has received support and praise from various respected seniors in both Hollywood and China namely Joe Russo (of Captain America fame), Rob Moore (former Paramount Vice President), Luc Besson (of Fifth Element fame), Stephen Chow (of Kung Fu Hustle fame), Tsui Hark (of The Blade fame), Feng Xiaogang (of Aftershock fame), Guan Hu (of Mr. Six fame) and countless others.
Kris Wu is fluent in Mandarin, English, Korean and Cantonese. He has acted in 10 movies, playing different roles and bringing his movies to success. He is tall, handsome and very adept in sports. He has little martial arts training but he is a good archer and basketball player. He has also needed to do stunts in movies and he is more than willing to do what the role requires of him. He is dedicated and willing to make sacrifices for his job.. he learned cello in under a month for his first movie and shaved his head completely bald for the lead role in his upcoming movie made by Tsui Hark and Stephen Chow. He is perfect for the male lead role (or any role) in Mulan.
