'To All the Boys': Lana Condor on the mega movie role she almost got

Lana Condor stars as Lara Jean in the movie trilogy To All the Boys I've Loved Before, but another role almost ruled that out.

"I was like down to the last two, or the last three, for 'Star Wars,'" she recently told Yahoo Entertainment. She was being considered to play the character Rose Tico, which eventually went to Kelly Marie Tran.

"I read with John Boyega," she said of the actor who played Finn. Condor explained how far she got in the process saying, "I did all the reads, the chemistry [tests], all the director stuff," but she also noted that she wouldn't have been able to play Lara Jean if that had panned out.

"That one was brutal just because it's 'Star Wars,'" she added.
