Taylor Zakhar Perez Didn't Play Guitar Before 'The Kissing Booth 2'

Taylor Zakhar Perez is dishing on the audition process for The Kissing Booth 2!

The actor is stealing hearts across the world as Marco in the just released Netflix sequel.

Taylor recently opened up about auditioning for the movie, and how he didn’t even know how to play guitar beforehand.

“I was immediately spooked,” he told Glamour about the role. “In the casting breakdown it said, ‘Please submit professional singers and dancers. We would love to consider Eurovision or American Idol stars,’ or something like that.”

“I didn’t think I’d have time to learn a song or the choreography the way I wanted to,” Taylor added. “Plus, this role was for a guy who played guitar, and I have never played guitar in my life. I grew up playing piano.”

After he landed the role, he said, “It was like, ‘You start dance and guitar rehearsals next week!’ Did we ever. We practiced dancing for hours. Hours! I wish I could bold and italicize and put that in 150 font. That’s how much we practiced.”

Joel Courtney Was Afraid of Failing in 'The Kissing Booth 2'

Joel Courtney admits he was nervous to go back for The Kissing Booth 2!

The 24-year-old actors stars as Lee in the movies and he recently opened up about stepping back into the role.

“I’ve never been in the position where I’ve gotten to pick a role back up. I’ve never done like, a Season 1 of a TV show and then gone back for Season 2,” he told Elite Daily. “I remember actually being a little nervous to fail because there’s so many fans that love this character and this friendship.”

Joel then added that getting back to work with Joey King was just so easy and natural.

“Day 1 on the set with Joey for The Kissing Booth 2 [was] like, ‘Oh yeah, we’re back,’” he said. “It was like putting on your favorite jacket. It just like, slips right on and you know how to wear it.”

Joey King Explains Why 'The Kissing Booth' Is Not a Movie for Critics

Joey King Explains Why 'The Kissing Booth' Is Not a Movie for Critics

Critics weren’t too kind while reviewing the first The Kissing Booth movie and the film’s star Joey King isn’t bothered by what they think!

The 20-year-old actress opened up about the negative reviews while appearing on Variety and iHeart’s The Big Ticket podcast.

“I understand that critics weren’t all over this movie, but that’s the thing — it’s not meant for critics to be like, ‘Wow, what a movie!’ It’s meant for people to watch and have a great time,” Joey told podcast host Marc Malkin. “I’m thankful that I got to do The Act, where critics were like, ‘Oh, that’s awesome.’ But also not everything you do has to have critical acclaim. It doesn’t mean it’s not successful. And it doesn’t mean it’s not one of my favorite projects I’ve worked on. And just the fan reaction to it is all the criticism I need as far as just the way it fills my heart.”

While the movie has a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes, it was a smash hit for Netflix and was the streaming service’s most re-watched movie of 2018. Clearly fans didn’t care about the reviews!

FYI: Joey is wearing a Sotos Natkis overalls, Jeffrey Campbell shoes, and Lillian Shalom ring.

'The Kissing Booth 3': Joey King Hopes It Will Happen!

We’re still a couple days away from the release of The Kissing Booth 2, but there’s already chatter about a third movie happening in the future and Joey King is sharing her thoughts!

The 20-year-old actress made a virtual appearance on The Today Show on Wednesday morning (July 22) and talked about the possibility of making another movie in the franchise. Joey says that she think the sequel is even better than the first, which was Netflix’s most re-watched movie in 2018.

So, will there be another movie?

“Well, me and the cast have been talking and we want that so bad and we’re kind of relying on the fans to help us out. They loved the first one so much and they’re the reason that we got a sequel. So if they love this one and they make it known to the world and to Netflix, our fingers are crossed that Netflix will give us a third movie because that’s what we want really badly,” Joey said.

FYI: Joey is wearing a Materiel jacket dress, Gianvito Rossi shoes, Melinda Maria earrings and Lillian Shalom rings.
