The Eternals star Kumail Nanjiani offered some advice to his fellow Marvel Studios actor Simu Liu, who portrays the titular hero of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 line-up will include feature films such as The Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. While The Eternals has wrapped production, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is gearing up to start filming in Australia early this year.
Among the many cast members of The Eternals is Kumail Nanjiani, who stunned the internet with a photo of his new and improved physique for his role as Kingo. During an interview with etalk, Kumail Nanjiani was asked if he had any advice for Simu Liu before the actor begins filming Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. While Kumail Nanjiani noted that Simu Liu was already in great shape, The Eternals star advised the Shang-Chi actor to remember to have fun with the role:
“Well, Simu was already in really good shape. Not that I wasn’t- Simu is already in great shape, and he’s going to get in better shape. We met him, we met him at Comic-Con, he was very, very nice. I would suggest, have fun, just enjoy it. It can be very hard when you’re doing a big thing like that to really like- you want to focus, but it can be hard to sometimes not enjoy it while you’re doing it. So that would be my advice to him, just have fun.”
