'The Sun Is Also a Star' Director Is 'Delighted' to Be Working With Charles Melton & Yara Shahidi

Charles Melton smiles as he waits to film a scene for his upcoming film The Sun Is Also a Star on Thursday (June 22) in New York.

The Riverdale actor wore a gray suit with Nike sneakers and was joined by his co-star Yara Shahidi.

The two young stars just began filming a few days prior and shared a behind the scenes photo. Check it out if you missed it!

Director Ry Russo-Young dished on working with the actors.

“I’m delighted to be working with Yara and Charles on this heartfelt love story, which is both timeless and timely,” she said. “[Author] Nicola Yoon has given us a beautiful story to tell and we all couldn’t be more excited to make the streets of New York City, where I grew up not that long ago, our stage for the next few weeks. I fell in love with these characters and I know Yara and Charles will bring them alive and make this movie their own. I can’t wait to see what they do.”

Check out the first pic of Charles Melton and Yara Shahidi in their new movie, The Sun is Also A Star!

The flick just started production with Ry Russo-Young directing.

The film centers on college-bound romantic Daniel Bae (Melton) and Jamaica-born pragmatist Natasha Kingsley (Shahidi), who meet—and fall for each other—over one magical day amidst the fervor and flurry of New York City.

Sparks immediately fly between these two strangers, who might never have met had fate not given them a little push. But will fate be enough to take these teens from star-crossed to lucky in love?

With just hours left on the clock in what looks to be her last day in the U.S., Natasha is fighting against her family’s deportation as fiercely as she’s fighting her budding feelings for Daniel, who is working just as hard to convince her they are destined to be together.

The Sun Is Also a Star will hit theaters in 2019.

Yara Shahidi Reveals What She Wants to See on 'grown-ish' Season 2!

Yara Shahidi is reflecting on season one of her hit show grown-ish!

“I feel like the end of the season really got into those more political topics like safe spaces that I really appreciated,” Yara told Deadline. “I also love the fact that by the end of the season, Zoey has more of a certain opinion. It seems as though she has her life together, temporarily. I guess I’m looking forward to having some more episodes to play with—the more mundane conversations, and going to class.”

grown-ish has already been picked up for a 20-episode season 2.

“It’s time to choose her major,” Yara continued. “I’m looking forward to the more academic pressure of it, her thinking she has her social stuff figured out from Year 1, once you become a sophomore and feel like you’ve gained all this wisdom. She should take on a freshman mentee, and guide her in all the wrong ways.”
