How the Stars of The Kissing Booth & Sierra Burgess Became Real-Life BFFs
Starring in a Netflix Original Movie isn’t the only thing that Shannon Purser and Joey King have in common; the two actresses have actually worked together before! That’s right, the pair met in 2017 while filming the scary movie Wish Upon. Not only was it the first time the girls met, but it was also Shannon’s first-ever feature film!
The two play close friends in the production, but it seems like they are also close in real life. According to the Riverdale star, both of them got along really well immediately.
“She is amazing. She is so funny,” she tells Clevver, exclusively. “We just bonded super fast.”
We all know that days on set can be super long and tiring for the actors involved, so it is not unusual for them to fall asleep in random places. But, according to Shannon, she and The Kissing Booth actress would actually nap together!
“There would be nights when we were shooting and we would just, like, fall asleep on each other,” she admits. “She’s precious.”
From pics taken on set, it looks like the two are pretty tight!

“She’s a really good friend and a great actress,” according to Shannon. “She’s very much her own woman.”
We are so here for the girl power!
