...and now Lana Condor has said goodbye to Lara Jean. In a touching new tribute, the actor shared just how much playing Lara Jean Covey has meant to her.
Beginning with a quote from the third novel, she wrote, "'One day all of this will be proof, proof that we were here, proof that we loved each other. It’s the guarantee that no matter what happens to us in the future, this time was ours.' — Always and Forever, Lara Jean."
"It’s been 16 days since the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise wrapped shooting movies 2 & 3," she continued. "I’ve been really struggling how to put into words my feelings towards this ending...words will never be able to describe my love for Lara Jean. Her family, her friends, Peter."
"Words will never be able to describe the long nights on set where it would suddenly hit me, like a ton of bricks, that I was getting the honor of portraying a girl so fiercely determined in love, who represents strength in softness."
"Words will never be able to describe my gratitude to YOU, for loving her as much as I do. For tying your hair up in a scrunchie and saying 'Let’s do this.'”
"Thank you from the very bottom of my heart, you’ve made me feel like the luckiest girl alive. Always & Forever, your Lara Jean," she concluded.
Welp, there goes my emotions!
Even though I'm sad it's coming to an end (in several, several months, thank goodness), I'm so glad we had someone as awesome as Lana Condor to do the character of Lara Jean justice.
