Henwick has appeared in several major franchises - from "Star Wars" and "Game of Thrones" to Marvel - throughout her career and, speaking to NME, she admits joining just prestigious movies is "trippy."
"I grew up watching these films," she says. "The first time Keanu (Reeves) spoke in character and said Neo's lines, Yahya (Abdul-Mateen II) and I shared a look like, 'Oh my god, it's happening!' "
Her character in the new movie has yet to be disclosed, but she tells the publication that, as with the rest of her jobs, she made a conscious effort to ensure the character wasn't stereotypically Asian.
"I want to create roles that I don't see enough of on screen," insists Henwick. "I just really felt a pressure from myself to not create any more stereotypes than Asians already face."
She goes on to note that, looking back on her filmography, she has "a lot of roles where being Asian had nothing to do with them or their ethnicity was not defined in the script."
"I just want to create roles that I don't feel I get to see enough of on screen," explains the Brit. "I want to tell stories that I feel haven't been told... that's really what it's all about."
