Something about a sword that's a greenish, and some people who fight and think fighting is cool because of honour and all that.

Natasha Liu Bordizzo is cute* and I wondered if she was a multi-ethnic hybrid. It turns out she's half-Chinese and half-Italian. And Australian. Cast because she's cute, and Chinese-enough to pass.
