After Movie Found Its New Tessa Young — & She’s Katherine Langford’s Sister!

By  | 

After, the movie based on Anna Todd‘s best-selling fanfiction-turned-novel, is set to start filming in just over a week, but, up until this point, the lead actress was not known. Julia Goldani Telles, who was originally set to play Tessa Young, dropped out of the film last week, citing “scheduling issues” as the reason. But good news, guys! They already found the 23-year-old’s replacement.

Let us introduce you all to Josephine Langford, the younger sister of 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford, who’s about to enter Hollywood in a big way.

“I’m so excited to be joining After as Tessa and to be able to bring her character to life,” the Australian beauty tells Deadline of being cast as Tessa. “After-nators have been waiting so patiently to see this story and I’m thrilled to be a part of telling it.”

But that’s not the only exciting piece of casting news coming from After today! Actor Swen Temmel is joining Josephine and Hero Fiennes-Tiffin (Harry Styles Hardin Scott) as troublemaker Jace.

“I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be playing the role of Jace in After,” Swen wrote on Instagram. “Can’t wait to get started. Gonna be something huge guys!”

Really enjoying reading all your comments. Thank you After fans from around the world! Love your support and welcoming to the After family. I can’t wait to bring the character of Jace alive for you guys.
