'The Perfect Date' Producer Reveals Why Camila Mendes & Laura Marano Were Perfect For Their Roles

'The Perfect Date' Producer Reveals Why Camila Mendes & Laura Marano Were Perfect For Their Roles

The Perfect Date premiered this weekend on Netflix and it’s hard to keep count on just how many times JJJ has tuned in.

Producer Matt Kaplan recently chatted with ET about the flick and opened up about the roles played by Camila Mendes and Laura Marano, Shelby and Celia.

“Laura is Laura. She’s such a charismatic, likable young woman who had all the attributes we were looking for in Celia,” he shared, while talking about all the ways that she was perfect for the part.

“She came in and auditioned and it permeated across the entire film and on set,” he added. “She carries herself so gracefully but has such a light, sarcastic tone that we felt would be a great match with Noah. Obviously, they had already had their relationship [on Austin & Ally] but now, seeing them as grown-ups felt like was a perfect match.”

As for the role of Shelby, Camila pretty much owned the role and was always the first choice for the part, too.

“We needed someone who could hold her own with Laura, and they felt different but both have such strong qualities that she was the perfect casting,” Matt says. “Again, it was a wish list and Camila is a very busy person with Riverdale, so we had to work around schedules but when we were able to make it work, I think everybody — from Chris Nelson, the director, to myself, Noah and Laura — were really excited to have her.”

Noah Centineo & Laura Marano Can't Stop Gushing Over 'Perfect Date' Co-Star Camila Mendes

Noah Centineo & Laura Marano Can't Stop Gushing Over 'Perfect Date' Co-Star Camila Mendes

It’s safe to say that the cast of The Perfect Date love each other.

In a new interview with Access, Noah Centineo, Laura Marano and Odiseas Georgiadis couldn’t say enough good things about Camila Mendes.

“She’s so awesome,” Laura said. “And she came kind of in the latter half of filming, so we had already gotten really close and this great rapport. You never know. You kind of feel bad when we’ve had a lot more time to connect, and first day — legitimately first day — we’re in Noah’s room talking until 6 a.m.”

Noah also says that “Cami’s super intelligent. She graduated from NYU and she went straight from there to Riverdale, which is such a crazy coincidence with Cole Sprouse. And I think another person on Riverdale as well graduated from NYU, so they were all in the same school, so she’s really, really intelligent and she’s also deeply talented.”

“She’s just awesome through and through, and I’m like, I wish she lived in L.A. more because she films all the time in Vancouver. So I’m just like ‘I love you.’ She’s awesome,” Laura added.

Camila also loves her cast just as much as they love her.

In another interview with Teen Vogue, Cami swooned over working with them on the movie.

“It was really fun. I love Noah, I love Laura. The first day we met, we all stayed up in our hotel room until 8 in the morning,” she recalled. “We were talking about everything, and it was such a beautiful conversation, just a great way to get to know each other. That kind of set the tone for the rest of the film.”

She continues, “It was a really good group; Odiseas [Georgiadis, who plays Murph] too — he’s super cool and I’m really excited for him to be discovered. We all bonded very quickly.”

The Perfect Date premieres on Netflix on Friday, April 12th!
