    Noah Centineo (AKA Peter K.) Was In The "Havana" Video And Here's What He Told Us About It

    "We danced and we laughed and we talked and got to know each other."

    It's been a pretty massive week for Noah Centineo β€” star of To All the Boys I've Loved Before and therefore the new crush of pretty much everyone in the world!!!


    But there's one thing you might not have realized about him β€” he starred in Camila Cabello's "Havana" music video, aka the Video of the Year at the VMAs. So, um, this really is HIS FREAKIN' WEEK.

    Noah, ooh na na.

    When Noah came to the BuzzFeed office, he told us all about the amazing experience. Here's what we learned:

    He found out about the opportunity while he was on set of The Fosters.


    "I got a phone call from my manager when I was on set of The Fosters, and he says, 'Hey man, so we have an opportunity for you to work on a music video. I'm not sure you're going to want to do it....'"

    His sister had introduced him to the song earlier that week, so he freaked out when he got the news.

    "...I say, 'Well, who's the artist?' and he says, 'Camila Cabello.' And I say, 'WHAT?! Oh my god! What's the song?' and he goes, 'Havana.' And I'm like, 'Dude, you don't even understand. My sister just showed me this song a week ago. Yes, yes, yes, a million times! I'm in.'

    He had the best time with Camila on set...

    "She is the kindest, sweetest, most energetic, tiniest little person that I've ever met. And we had an amazing time. We danced and we laughed and we talked and got to know each other. It was a lovely experience."

    ...and he even asked her why she chose him to be a part of the project, which all came down to *fate*:

    "I don't know. I honestly don't know. I asked her that. I said, 'Why did you pick me for this?' And she said, 'I don't know. They showed me a few pictures of options, and you just seemed like the right one.' It was incredible. Serendipity."

    To summarize, it was an ideal experience for all involved and now we're blessed with even more Noah:
