The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before Stars Reveal Things They Did for Love
This week marks a very important time in representation. Not only is Crazy Rich Asians performing SPECTACULARLY with audiences everywhere, but another Asian-led production was just released that we need to discuss: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
The romantic teen film, based on the 2014 young-adult novel of the same name by Jenny Han, hit Netflix today, and it’s already got people talking. Here’s the plot:
Lara Jean writes love letters to all her past crushes, letters meant for her eyes only. One day, the letters are sent out to her previous five loves, and her life is thrown into chaos when they confront her one by one.
The lovely young woman is played by 21-year-old Lana Condor, a Vietnam-born actress who made her movie debut as Jubilation Lee/Jubilee in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse. Do you know how rare it is to see Asian talent — particularly female Asian talent — leading a film?! Go ahead, we’ll wait while you mull it over… See, this is a HUGE deal.
So, when we got the chance to speak to the cast of this groundbreaking production, you can bet that we took it. And the flick’s two leading stars, Lana and Noah Centineo, are breaths of fresh air. We chatted about the craziest things they’ve done for love, working with their fellow cast members, plus we played a game of Guess the Rom-Com. Watch above!
