Without Lana Condor,”To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before,” wouldn’t have been the same!

In a recent interview, the 21-year-old star of the Netflix hit-film opened up about the auditioning process and how she snagged the coveted role of Lara Jean Covey!

From chemistry reads with other actors to feeling the pressure of being a lead, Lana doesn’t hold back when talking about what it took to get the role. She even reveals a hilarious story about co-star, Noah Centineo, and how she thought he was going to hate her after they first met!

“They were really thorough. I went to pre-reads — it’s the audition to see if you’re worthy enough to get the real audition. You read sides. I wanted this part so bad, I literally told myself before going in, ‘You can’t let anyone take this away from you.’ It’s not often I get an opportunity like that.”
