Three and a half years ago, Lana Condor was 18 years old and had no idea how to be famous. She’d never been to a splashy industry party, worn designer clothes, or signed an autograph. Every time a flashbulb went off, she flinched.Read more at Cosmopolitan.com!
At this point, she’d just finished shooting her first role (a small part in a big X-Men movie), but it hadn’t come out yet, and she wasn’t sure if acting could be a real career. She’d finished high school and thought she kinda might want to be a journalist like her dad. But at the end of the summer in 2015, her publicist snagged her an invite to a party for Emmy nominees in Beverly Hills, Lana’s first big event. She wore a bright orange minidress, a high pony, and a sparkly clutch. She looked like an impossibly chic tangerine.
“Oh my god, I’m so cool,” she thought as she posed for photographers.
And then, just like in our dreams (and at least 80 percent of Sex and the City episodes), Lana had That Moment. She locked eyes with a tall, shaggy-haired guy at the bar. Later, she felt a tap on her shoulder and turned around. It was him.
“Hi, I’m Anthony,” he said with an outstretched hand and noticeably sweet eyes. “I thought I would make a friend.”
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.Read more at Southwest: The Magazine
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.”Read more at NYTimes.com
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.
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!
