Sandra Oh on Simu Liu being named one of the most influential people of 2022: 'He's our superhero'

Time recently revealed that actor Simu Liu is one of the five cover stars of the publication's annual Time100 issue, which highlights the 100 most influential people in the world.
Edward Felsenthal, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Time, described this year's list not only as a showcase for influence, but also as a study in how influence can be harnessed.
"The spectrum of leaders on this list, making an impact in so many ways, reminds us that we all have the opportunity to use our powers for good," Felsenthal wrote.
Each person added to the Time100 list is assigned to one of six categories: Artists, Innovators, Titans, Leaders, Icons and Pioneers. In addition, Time handpicks guest writers to write about these individuals.

Liu belongs to the Artist category and was paired with fellow actress Sandra Oh, who gushed about the Marvel star's authenticity and versatility in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
"I was so pleased to see Simu hone his comedic skills, his fighting skills and his gravitas," Oh wrote. "I love his ability to make fun of himself. And of course the guy looks great in a suit.”
Oh also commended Liu for his fearless support of the API community.
