What has playing Lara Jean meant to you?
It’s meant everything to me. I’m the biggest fan of her story and the book franchise [by Jenny Han]. Playing Lara Jean has taught me to be a better person, to be more pure and innocent. She’s so quirky, but she’s never apologetic for her differences, and that has made a huge change in my life. I’m a total weirdo, and because of Lara Jean, I realized that’s OK. When people come up to me and say how much she meant to them, I’m not surprised because she means the same exact thing to me.
