Sean Kaufman takes on his first series regular role in the new Prime Video series The Summer I Turned Pretty!

The actor can be seen in the new show as Steven Conklin, the brother to Lola Tung‘s Belly.

The Summer I Turned Pretty is of course an adaptation from Jenny Han‘s book of the same name. She’s also a writer, executive producer and co-showrunner on the series.
