For Kwan and for Capcom, these two versions of Chun Li are different people with years of life experiences that provided Chun Li with opportunities to grow and mature in their own ways. As such, Kwan wanted to convey something new with the character that would reflect her development while retaining the vital essence of her personality.
Beforehand street fighter 6Kwan is best known for her roles as Suki in Avatar: The Last Airbender and Sam Woo on the NBC sitcom California dreams. Suki is a fighter who is part of the Kyoshi Warriors, a group created by Avatar Kyoshi of the Earth Kingdom to protect her homeland, the island of Kyoshi. In addition to her hand-to-hand combat skills, Suki is also proficient with weapons such as war fans and katanas. Coincidentally, there are some similarities between Chun Li and Suki.
Both characters exude maturity and also specialize in hand-to-hand combat. And since then, Chun Li has had to deal with one of them street fighterKwan has been M. Bison’s main antagonist for many years and thinks the character has a more villainous personality compared to Suki. Chun Li is extremely disciplined and is often the voice of reason in groups. Despite her down-to-earth demeanor, she sometimes acts rashly when criminals insult her pride as a police officer, which can cause her to lose her better judgment—especially when fighting Bison, the man who murdered her father.
Start with Street Fighter III: 3rd StrikeWhen Chun Li meets Li-Fen for the first time, she appears friendlier and more helpful. In street fighter 6however, Chun Li takes on the role of the teacher and calms down a bit.
On the other hand, and in a completely different role, Kwan says that Suki still had a lot to do as she grew up avatar Series since she was young and still going through her own journey. Both characters are interesting because they are allowed to change over time, just like people do in real life.
Kwan brings the same variety of perspectives to the roles she plays. She states that she has been able to act in TV shows, films, animated films, and video games, impersonating a variety of different characters. “As an actress, the business has been up and down for so long,” she continues. “I was very fortunate to be able to cross all genres. Not everyone can do that.”
I’m looking forward to
At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Capcom brought Kwan to the on-site spotlight street fighter 6 Stood and gave her a tour where she could see people playing the game in real life. A shiver ran down her spine. She says it was surreal to see people play as Chun Li and hear her own voice.
Even after all these years, Kwan is still trying to find the original contract for the old Chun Li voice sample because the character ended up being so popular. As an actress, she says she has to remember that there are always ups and downs in the entertainment industry. Little did she know an audition decades ago would be like this.
Chun Li is a badass, strong and determined fighter by every measure, and Kwan says she gets emotional knowing people are looking up to her. “I only see her in street fighter 6“Even when it comes to the little bits, there’s a kind of calm before the storm about her, that she’s able to persevere and just persevere,” says Kwan. “She has enough courage and strength not to back down, which is pretty impressive and I admire that too.”
