Stop the presses — After has found its leading lady & man!

Following YEARS of dreamcasting Anna Todd‘s Wattpad-story-turned-bestselling-book-series-turned-movie, things are really starting to progress. Last November, the film, based on One Direction fanfiction, found its director, Jenny Gage. Now, half a year later, the project has a cast! Well… at least the two most important members were cast.

23-year-old Julia Goldani Telles and 20-year-old Hero Fiennes Tiffin have just signed on for the project as Tessa and Hardin (who’s based on Harry Styles), respectively. Writer Anna Todd revealed the news herself:

Julia is most known for her role on the Freeform (formerly ABC Family) series Bunheads, while Hero is probably best known for portraying young Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. You may notice that he has the same last name as HP star Ralph Riennes (a.k.a. Tom Riddle a.k.a. Lord Voldemort) — that’s because Ralph is actually his uncle!

Recently, producer Jennifer Gibgot revealed that Teen Wolf alum Daniel Sharman was offered a role in the flick, but ultimately decided to turn it down.
