Kore Asian Media challenged Lana to do a 10-minute Lego challenge. Watch how she did below!
Check out a new interview Lana did with NBC Asian America! She discussed To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and the lack of Asian lead roles in rom coms. There’s a new production still photo from the movie!
It’s been more than two years since Lana Condor got the call that jumpstarted her dream career, and now the 20-year-old actress is seeing another dream come true.
“A few months ago when I was on a plane, I was daydreaming about how fun it’d be to act in a romantic comedy, because I don’t know of any rom-coms where Asian women are the leads,” Condor told NBC News. “And now here we are.”
That “here” is “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” an adaptation of Jenny Han’s three-part young adult novel, that stars Condor as Jean Song Covey, a half Korean, half white teenager who lives with her widowed father and two sisters. The novel chronicles Lara Jean’s suddenly complicated love life, after letters she’s written to the boys she’s loved and hidden beneath her bed are found and sent.
The film, which wrapped in early August and doesn’t yet have a release date, will also feature Janel Parrish of “Pretty Little Liars” and Anna Cathcart as Lara Jean’s sisters – a casting choice that author Han praised, posting online after the movie’s announcement: “That is truly groundbreaking. I haven’t seen Asian American women centered on the screen since Joy Luck Club, which was nearly 25 years ago.”

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!
