Watch out, Noah Centineo, you have a new rival. Rent: Live star Jordan Fisher has been cast as Lana Condor’s new love interest John Ambrose in the sequel to Netflix’s hit film To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before. The 24-year-old actor is portraying John Ambrose McClaren, who will go up against Centineo’s Peter Kavinsky for the love and affection of Condor’s Lara Jean. Fisher confirmed the news via a video on Twitter which he shared on Thursday, March 30th, writing, “P.S. I’m John Ambrose McClaren! Look out, LJ. @alltheboysfilm @NetflixFilm @lanacondor.”
In the video, Condor knocked on the door of a trailer with the name “John Ambrose” on it. Speaking to Fisher, who was hidden from view, she said, “Oh my gosh you’re here! This is gonna be so amazing!” Fisher responded with, “I know, I’m so excited!”
The video then cut to reveal the actor, who is also known for his win on Dancing with the Stars in 2017.
Based on Jenny Han’s bestselling trilogy, the character of Lara Jean wrote letters to all the boys she found herself falling for, which included Kavinsky and Ambrose. Those letters were then found by the boys whom she had written to, leading the way for her romance with Kavinsky. The character of John Ambrose was only briefly mentioned and seen at the end of the first film, but the sequel to the film will introduce a love triangle between himself, Lara Jean, and Kavinsky.
John Corbett, Janel Parrish, and Anna Cathcart are all set to return for the sequel.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 2 is set for release in 2020.
