UT Arlington Maverick Speakers Series: Simu Liu
As part of the UT Arlington's Maverick Speakers Series, actor Simu Liu will participate in a virtual conversation, moderated by Shaunda Musick, UTA alumni relations coordinator.
Liu is an actor, author, and activist who made his debut this summer as the title character in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and starring alongside Awkwafina, Tony Leung, and Michelle Yeoh, Liu made history as the star of the first Asian-fronted movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
For five seasons, Liu starred in the CBC/Netflix comedy series Kim’s Convenience, the first Canadian television series with an all-Asian lead cast, which chronicles the day-to-day micro-dramas encountered by a Korean immigrant family that runs a corner grocery store.
