This Picture of Lana Condor Helped Get Her The Part of Lara Jean in 'To All The Boys I've Loved Before'

A lot of times, pictures can tell us a thousand stories – but one picture of Lana Condor told just one to author Jenny Han – and that was Lara Jean’s story in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Jenny opened to Teen Vogue in a new interview about her love for Lana, who she was a fan of even before they met.

Turns out that one particular picture Lana posted on her Instagram helped her a lot in securing the role of Lara Jean for the Netflix film, out today.

“She posted a picture of herself at a soda fountain, a ‘50s-style soda fountain counter, and the picture was really pastel and all sherbet-y colors, and she was wearing a headband, and she just looks so sweet and charming,” Jenny says of the pic, which was taken in 2016, and you can see below.

The whole picture screamed Lara Jean to Jenny too.

“I think that she’s a throwback kind of a character,” Jenny says. “She likes vintage, she’s romantic, she likes Americana. When it came down to making the moodboard, I said that her style is like ‘60s meets ‘90s meets Asian streetwear.”

She adds that Lara Jean is “someone who goes to the vintage store to look for clothes; she’s also somebody who’s looking at Asian streetwear blogs of people just walking around Tokyo or Seoul or Hong Kong.”
