Lana Condor Just Read The Book To Prepare For 'To All The Boys I've Loved Before' Role

Lana Condor probably got asked how she prepared herself to play Lara Jean Song Covey in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before a million times – and her answer is right in front of everyone’s eyes.

“I read the book a million times,” the 21-year-old actress shared with The Cut, adding that she got “really lucky” that she had a “preexisting source material because half the work is done for you.”

Lana continued, joking that she’s “a horrible actor’s actor. Some people make a moodboard, do the journaling, and sit in a dark room and figure it out. I don’t do that, I wish I did.”

She also spoke about how much she connected with the Lara Jean that author Jenny Han wrote.

“I felt lucky because in high school, I was similar to Lara Jean,” she says. “Now I’m more of an extrovert, but that’s a learned personality trait. I have never played a normal girl before. As an actor, if you’re in an action movie, you can hide behind the hair, makeup, and production. When you’re playing a normal girl, it’s you. You’re a lot more exposed.”

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is streaming now on Netflix.
