Lana Condor says fans will be 'conflicted' over this part of the To All The Boys I've Loved Before sequel

Lana Condor has opened up about the one part of the sequel to To All The Boys I've Loved Before that will leave fans "conflicted."

The rom-com adaptation of the first book-and-a-half from Jenny Han's trilogy was released last summer - and soon became a massive hit.

And while the sequel was confirmed late last year, there's still a lot in the air about what's going to happen - although the end-credits scene in the first film is definitely a clue.

In can you need a refresher, it featured John Ambrose McClaren - one of the recipients of Lara Jean's letters - turning up on the Covey's doorstep. With flowers.

We would imagine his reappearance is going to throw a bit of a spanner into Lara Jean's romance with Peter Kavinsky...

Now, Lana has admitted that casting directors are on the hunt for someone to play John, but it has proven to be difficult as they want someone who can "match Noah's charm and amazingness."

The actress was speaking to Cosmopolitan US for their March issue when she opened up about the "difficult" situation.

She said:

"I don't know who's going to play John Ambrose, but I do know that we're looking long and hard into someone who can match Noah's charm and amazingness, which is very difficult."

She also admitted she was a bit worried about how fans will react to her character having a new love interest in the movie - especially after their reaction to the fact she and Noah weren't really dating.

She added:

"It's happened with my personal life. When the movie first came out, the fans weren't happy about my relationship.

"Fans, of course, wanted me to be with Noah. You watch it, you fall in love with these characters and you're like, 'They need to be in love in real life.'

"When that first kind of happens, my boyfriend has always been so supportive, and he gets the industry and he understands the work but that was really challenging for the both of us, but particularly because I felt so bad for him and he got a lot of flack.

"A lot of people were like, 'She needs to be with Noah.'

"Now, it's calmed down a lot and people are a lot more supportive of Anthony and I's relationship than they were in the beginning, because they know Noah and I are just friends.

"Whoever we bring in is going to do a great job and I think people are going to be very conflicted."
