Lana Condor rose to super stardom when To All The Boys I ’ve Loved Before dropped back in 2018. She’s the girl that had everyone buzzing on the Internet: finally, a fresh take on romcoms where Asians weren’t the geeky sidekick. In To All The Boys I ’ve Loved Before, Lana Condor plays Lara Jean, a hopeless romantic whose love life finally gets a start when her love letters to her former crushes are sent. The Internet was obsessed with everything the film had to offer; an Asian lead, the gestures that ’ll give you butterflies and outfits to die for. “I was in the subway and I met all these girls and I was like, ‘Hey you kinda look like you’re dressed up as Lara Jean!’ and the girl was like, ‘BUT I AM! I want to dress like her.’,” Lana excitedly recalls. “Being here, meeting these girls and being able to let them know how beautiful and important they are has been the greatest gift in my whole entire career,” says Lana.
Another thing that made the movie so loved was the chemistry Lana had with her co-star, Noah Centineo, who plays Peter Kavinsky. “When he wrapped [shooting a couple weeks prior] I wrote him a frickin’ love letter cause I felt like it was appropriate,” she laughs, “I basically said that I could not imagine being on this crazy journey with anyone but him. He’s a really really great friend of mine and now I can say that I do love him a lot so I don’t know what life would’ve been like if it wasn’t Noah Centineo playing Peter,” says Lana.
