Lana is featured on Bustle’s website in a new article called ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Star Lana Condor Is Ready To Be Your Girl Next Door. You can view all of the photos in the gallery and read the entire article at Bustle.com.
What’s so revolutionary about To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before isn’t that it features an Asian American lead, it’s that being Asian American isn’t Lara Jean’s main character trait. “There are stories where you specifically focus on race, and then there are stories where you just tell someone’s life,” Condor explains. To All The Boys is definitely the latter, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not an important film for Asian Americans. “I want to represent our community, but also represent us Asian Americans in a way where it’s like, ‘Look, we are just like you! We’re not this other entity. This is your girl next door,” Condor says.
Another new project for Lana! She has been cast in a new TV pilot for Syfy called Deadly Class. The show is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Wes Craig, about a teenager recruited into a high school for assassins.
Lana was cast as Saya, a mysterious and guarded girl with a deadly reputation, who was banished from one of the top Yakuza clans in Japan and sent to the School for the Deadly Arts to redeem herself. She will star alongside Benjamin Wadsworth, Benedict Wong, Maria Gabriela de Faria, Luke Tennie, Liam James, and Michel Duval.
Congrats to Lana!

Lana has a new project coming soon, titled “Summer Night.” She posted the picture below with one of her co-stars, Hayden Szeto, to Instagram this week. I don’t yet have any details on the release date of the film, but when I do I’ll share it!
Lana has been cast in the upcoming Netflix movie adaptation of the book, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, written by Jenny Han. Lana will play the role of Lara Jean Covey, a girl whose love life is turned upside down after secret love letters written to her old crushes are sent out. She will star alongside John Corbett, Janel Parrish, and Noah Centineo.
Congrats to Lana for landing this great project!
