In the last week, fans of Para Todos os Garotos que Eu Amei returned to speak en masse on the internet, but this time with a constructive criticism regarding the different receptions of the public regarding the main cast: why did Lana Condor’s career not take off as Noah Centineo’s after the movie?
Since the release of the film adaptation of For All Boys on Netflix in 2018, Noah Centineo has become very popular and acclaimed for new youth romantic comedy films, launching several projects like Sierra Burgess is a Loser (2018), Swiped (2018) and O Date Perfeito (2019), all as protagonists, besides guaranteeing a role in the remake of As Panteras, with release expected later this year.
Already Lana Condor, although she was the protagonist of the Original Netflix, has not managed so many films since then, having only joined the cast of Deadly Class (2019), a series that was canceled shortly after its first season, a tip in Alita: Angel (2019) and a supporting role in the film Summer Night, with a shared lead role for Girls Night, which opens in 2020.
The differences in the curriculum are also a reflection of public reactions: when the film was hot, in the middle of last year, fans commented much more about Centineo and its beauty than about any characteristic of Condor or its role as Lara Jean.
On the internet, some fans have commented on the differences, emphasizing issues such as machismo and veiled racism in the industry and, unfortunately, in the public.
Read some of these comments:
It is also important to note that the debate is not a devaluation or criticism of Centineo and his work, but rather a question as to why Condor, as the protagonist, was not received in the same way by Hollywood, the media and even by the fans of the film.
Meanwhile, the film’s sequel is expected to arrive on Netflix on February 12, 2019, very close to Valentine’s Day, the United States’ Valentine’s Day.
