In case you missed it, the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot movie has officially wrapped filming. There's still work to be done, of course, but for now, the actors are basically through with their contributions to the film. While several of the cast members like Ludi Lin and Mehcad Brooks were quick to take to social media to celebrate wrapping filming, Lewis Tan wasn't in the initial wave, but his response was no less thankful or emotional.
"Picture wrap on Mortal Kombat!" Tan shared over on Instagram. "This will take awhile to process before I can put the feelings into words accurately, for now I’m depleted, physically and emotionally, I’m delighted and exhilarated, that is how it should feel at the end, give everything for the art. Risk it all. We made something truly special here. I’m proud."

Picture wrap on Mortal Kombat! This will take awhile to process before I can put the feelings into words accurately, for now I’m depleted, physically and emotionally, I’m delighted and exhilarated, that is how it should feel at the end, give everything for the art. Risk it all. We made something truly special here. I’m proud. The filmmakers and crew were top of their class and beyond professional. Australia delivered unique and breathtaking landscapes. The cast have created a family and bond that will last forever. Thank you @simonmcquoid for your trust and guidance, you are the embodiment of a leader. Lastly, my inspiration. My niece was born with rare a lung disease when she was 3, doctors said she wouldn’t make it, she fought through unthinkable circumstances and impossible odds just to survive. A true warrior. Shes 15 now. This year when I turned down 3 films and 2 TV shows to spend months reading for a huge film that eventually wasn’t for me, she was there texting me support daily, now she sittin in my chair watching me perform as I lead my first studio picture. Never. Ever. Give. Up. #MortalKombatMovie #MortalKombat
It's worth noting here that Tan's role in the film has yet to be officially confirmed. Given that the vast majority of the bigger roles have already been filled, speculation online is that Tan portrays either Johnny Cage or an entirely new character. Regardless, it sounds like Tan had an incredible time with it.
