Hitting our screens in all its glory on December 12th, Netflix’s latest endeavour is the 10-part drama series Marco Polo. To mark it’s impending arrival, we caught up with one of the show’s leading stars Zhu Zhu, who plays Kokachin. She told us what we can expect of the show and her character – and how much she already knew about the real life incidents and people that inspired this exciting new series.

All ten episodes of the Netflix original series MARCO POLO will premiere on Friday, December 12 at 12:01 AM PT, exclusively on Netflix.
