An Update on the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before Sequel by Lana Condor
Adopted from: elle.com
Updated:7th January 2019
Speaking about the upcoming sequel, Condor has confirmed that there will be a love triangle.
In the first film Lana plays the role of Lara Jean Covey who is Peter Kavinsky’s true love. The TATBILB sequel will show Peter some serious competition.
“There’s going to be a major new love interest,” she told ELLE.com at the BAFTA tea party in Los Angeles on Saturday. “The first one was with Josh and Peter, but in the second movie it’s going to be a major new character that’s going to challenge Peter quite a bit and fight over me, which is not a bad thing.”
While fans suspected this love triangle could be a thing since it’s in P.S. I Love You, the second book of the Jenny Han trilogy the films are based on, it’s hard to believe anything could challenge the adorable Peter/Lara Jean situation. But Condor assured us, “It’s not a joke, it’s very real.”
She goes further to say the following about the interloper, “I do know that we’re working really hard to find someone that’s perfect and just as charismatic as Peter, which is hard to do.”
We figure finding this as-perfect-as-Peter person could take a while, which might be a relief for Condor, who confessed to being a bit freaked out by the potential fan backlash when her character gives Peter the runaround. “I actually have that fear,” she said. “I’m scared.”

TATBILB’s Lana Condor on Her Biracial Family, Noah Centineo Thirst, and Israel Broussard’s Tweets
Updated: August 31, 2018
Everyone is really into this movie! Do you think it’s because we are finally seeing a teen guy treat a teen girl well on screen?
The reaction to the movie has been completely insane. We had all hoped it would be this positive, but we never in our wildest dreams thought it’d be this wildly popular. It’s been quite a dream come true. Yeah, the movie depicts wholesome family life and teen romance, and I think it shows a positive partnership between a guy and a girl. I think there are not as many movies showing really good wholesome teen stories. My cousins are around the age of our audience and I’m glad we finally have a movie that isn’t over-sexualized, that isn’t inappropriate.
But are we giving Peter too much credit? Are we seriously this wowed by the fact a boy was nice to a girl?
It’s funny, because I was just reading a tweet saying, “Guys, we gotta step up our game because now every girl wants a Peter Kavinsky.” Well, you guys should already be Peter Kavinsky. So yes, absolutely. I’m happy they have someone to model that you should treat women like this, but they should already have been treating women like this.
How did you feel about the fact that you got to play a girl next door? We as Asian-Americans historically never got to be the Jennifer Love Hewitts in teen movies.
My hope is this character will change the way writers decide to depict Asian-Americans. We get pretty much the same roles of being the nerd or the awkward person. I think Lara Jean just being your average girl…we’re not focusing on the way that she looks. She is a universal character; she also happens to be Asian. We’re normalizing it. We’re not making us an “other” anymore.
Did you ever get Noah and Israel mixed up? I mean, everyone always confuses Asians because they think we all look the same. But those two guys really look alike!
[Laughs] I’ve heard people say, “Wow, they look really alike.” I didn’t get them mixed up, but I would often call Noah “Peter” and Israel “Josh,” and vice versa.
I know you were adopted from Vietnam. I was adopted from Korea, so I wanted to ask if this role spoke to you or touched you as an adoptee. In some ways, being Asian can be even more confusing when you’re adopted and representation can mean even more for us.
Oh wow, you were?
Yeah! When I was three months old. What about you? How old were you?
Four months. I have an adopted brother, too. We aren’t related or from the same adoption agency or anything, though. So, people don’t know how to talk about adoption. They don’t know how to approach me, because they think it’s a sensitive subject. However, I love to talk about it. I like to make people feel more comfortable, and it’s great to have this platform and be able to shed light on adoption and how it’s a beautiful thing, instead of being tiptoed around. It’s been exciting for my parents as well. I hope that other girls who have been adopted are watching the journey. We can celebrate it. It’s a gift.
Did you relate to Lara Jean in some ways?
I did relate to Lara Jean’s character, because she’s from a biracial family. I never considered it, but I’m from a biracial family because my parents are white and my brother and I are both Asian.
The scene with my dad in the diner when he takes me out and talks to me about my mom—I could relate to that. I honestly felt like I was talking to my real dad. When I first read the scene with John [Corbett], I got really emotional because I did think of my birth mother, and not knowing who she is and where she is and what she’s doing and if she’s alive. That triggered me more than I thought it would.
I toned it down in the scene, but it snuck up on me. I for sure was able to use those emotions in that scene where I was talking to John. It’s funny because I don’t think about my birth mother a lot because I never knew her. Those moments are when you’re accidentally forced to bring your real life onto camera.
So that was a real scene, real emotions, a real moment.
That was a very real moment for sure. I was thinking to myself, my [adoptive] mom is my mom, and I love her to the end of the world. But I just never thought of my [birth] mom as Asian. When I saw the picture of my mom in the scene it really took me by surprise.
So the movie scene was the first time it was really laid bare for you that in real life, you also have a mother who is Asian.
Yeah, it was.
Were you in touch with your heritage growing up in Chicago?
Yeah, my parents would dress us up in traditional Vietnamese clothing to go to school for heritage day. We have a Vietnamese nanny that my parents wanted us to have so we could stay in touch and know where we came from. They tried to have us eat Vietnamese food. Now, I love it. But I was also a vegetarian so I didn’t have much to eat.
My parents tried their best to educate us on where we came from. The way that I grew up was that your experience is your experience. I think there’s a misconception that all Asian-American experiences are the same. My experiences with my family and the way they wanted me to know my culture are not the same as others. My adopted brother is 21, four months older than I am.
