Lana is featured on the cover of Southwest: The Magazine for February 2019! I’ve added some scans from the feature to the gallery, and you can read a little of the interview below.
After premiering on Netflix last August, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before became an instant hit and finished 2018 as the streaming platform’s second-most rewatched original title. Lana Condor plays Lara Jean Covey, an introverted high-schooler whose love letters are accidentally mailed out to her former and current crushes. Here, she dishes on the film’s success, her new role as a teenage assassin, and why rom-coms can be good for us all. 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.
Lana was featured in an article for the NY Times, where she learns how to make sushi. I’ve added some photos to the gallery.
Inside a bitsy fish store in Brooklyn, Lana Condor switched the blowtorch on. “Power!” she said brightly on a cold Friday morning, as a blade of butane flame shot from the canister. “Oh yeah.” Ms. Condor, 21, who wields a sword as a teenage assassin in the new Syfy action series “Deadly Class,” is an enthusiastic home cook. During a break from promotional rounds, she had signed up for a sushi class at Osakana, a tiny temple devoted to locally sourced fish in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. She had no idea that it would include weapons training. She clearly didn’t mind. “Holy cow!” she said as the skin on slices of golden tilefish began to sear and crackle.
