5 Reasons Why Lana Condor is a Star

If you haven’t watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before at this point, you must be hiding under a rock. For those that don’t know, it’s a sensational Netflix original (and one of their best I have watched thus far). Regardless, I’m sure you’ve heard of the TATBILB star, Lana Condor, who plays Lara Jean in the movie. I fell in love with her watching the movie and knew there was something special about this actress, seeing as how she is able to play Lara Jean so naturally. I know that Lana Condor is going to be popping up on our TV screens a lot more in the future, so why not get to know this talented star now? Here are the top five reasons why Lana Condor is an absolute star:

1.  Lara Jean’s geniality

I can’t imagine replacing Lana Condor with any other actress as Lara Jean because I believe no one could play her as genuinely and sincerely as Lana did.


2. An Instagram icon

Talk about relatable, Lana’s Instagram stories are the most genuine pieces of content on the internet. My favorites are her love for breakfast burritos and how she’s always getting stuck in traffic on her way to work, usually waiting for a train to (slowly) cross the tracks.


3.  A fierce fashion sense

If you’ve been keeping up with her constant photo shoot sessions, you will know that Lana has been working (both fashionably and financially) her way onto some top magazine covers with the sleekest outfits. Not only that, but she looks absolutely stunning in every single clothing item she shoots in.


4.  A wickedly talented actress

If you’ve seen TATBILB, then you know that Lana’s character, Lara Jean, is a shy, energetic, caring, hilarious, quirky bundle of a high school student. Currently, Lana is in the process of filming Deadly Class, a new TV series based on a comic book series of the same name, which comes out on January 16, 2019.


5.  Loves sharing pictures of good food as much as she loves good food

I myself love to bake and cook, but I don’t think I have or ever will be able to make food as delicious as Lana Condor. Her Instagram is just swelling with photos and videos of delectable food, some from restaurants, but the majority coming live from her kitchen. I’m definitely going to have to find a way to get her recipes.


Lana Condor is an idol (for obvious reasons listed above)! She’s very truly one-of-a-kind, and I can only sit patiently on my couch for so long hoping she’ll be hitting the big screen with her next movie soon (fingers crossed Lana signs on to star in a film…like tomorrow, because I am not that patient).
