'To All the Boys' actors struggle to bid farewell after 'Always and Forever'

The third and final film in Netflix's beloved 'To All the Boys' trilogy is now streaming on the OTT platform

The third and final film in Netflix's beloved To All the Boys trilogy, Always and Forever stars Lana Condor and Noah Centineo aren't ready to say goodbye to Lara Jean and Peter.

"I'm in deep denial," Condor confessed to ET's Rachel Smith over Zoom in late January on reaching the end of the To All the Boys journey. "I was such a wreck when we had wrapped in Korea; we shot the Korea portion of it at the very end of [the movie]. I was such a wreck! I truly do not... I can't, I don't, I think when it's finally out on Netflix it'll sink in but I'm not ready."

In Always and Forever, based on Jenny Han's novel Always and Forever, Lara Jean and Peter can be seen preparing for the next chapter of their lives: college. The now high school seniors discover they have different priorities when it comes to their vision for their futures.

Two life-changing trips – one to Korea and the other to New York City – lead Lara Jean to reimagine what life with her family, friends, and Peter would look like after graduation.

According to Condor, Centineo wrapped Always and Forever before she and her co-stars Janel Parrish and Anna Cathcart made the trip to Korea. As she recalled, Centineo was in "denial" that the “entire day" he was filming his final scenes for the movie.

"I kind of just avoided him throughout the day," the 23-year-old actor said. "Like, I didn't want to look at him. I didn't want to talk to him. I was like, 'No, this isn't happening,' and that was pretty rough. I just feel very grateful for everyone on the cast and I feel very grateful that I got to work with Noah because I think our relationship really stood the test of time in these movies. I really enjoy him as a scene partner and as a person, so saying goodbye to him knowing that we were going to keep going, but that was his last day, really, really sucked."

"Then, I thought that of course I was going to see him for press and everything, but since the global pandemic, there isn't really that closure," Condor noted.

Condor and Centineo credited the "no dating" pact they made at the start of the To All the Boys trilogy, saying it played a large part in keeping the movies pure and true.
