  • -Welcome to "The Tonight Show."
  • -Oh, my God. Thank you for having me.
  • I can't believe I'm here.
  • -Oh, I'm so -- We are so psyched that you're here.
  • Are you kidding me? You're fantastic.
  • I want to tell everyone your story,
  • if they don't know your story.
  • -Okay.
  • -You were born in Vietnam?
  • -Yes, I was.
  • -And then you were adopted by an American family?
  • -Yes. -And where did you grow up?
  • -I grew up -- I grew up everywhere.
  • I'm like a nomad.
  • So, my parents brought me to Chicago,
  • and then to Washington State where I lived on Whidbey Island,
  • which, I don't know if you're familiar with it,
  • but Whidbey Island is a farm island.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -Now, Whidbey Island? -Whidbey Island. Yes.
  • -It's a farm island? -Yes.
  • -As in it "would be" a farm if it were not on an island?
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -There you go. -Very nice.
  • You said it was a farm island. What does that mean?
  • -Yeah, well, it was just -- I grew up with a bunch of horses
  • and I grew up with animals and just --
  • it's like we're all hippies on the island,
  • and so now whenever I go back, they're like, "How did you --
  • from here to -- now you're doing this?"
  • -Yeah, exactly. How did you do that? Yeah.
  • -I don't know. I think I just got really lucky.
  • -No. You worked hard.
  • Well, when did -- How did you get into acting?
  • -Well, I was a dancer for most of my childhood,
  • and then one day I realized --
  • like, my dad put me into a drama class.
  • And I realized like, "Oh, I can entertain people with my words,
  • and not just, like, moving around."
  • -Yeah. [ Laughter ]
  • -Which was mind-blowing. -That's great.
  • They're good supportive parents.
  • -Yeah. Really, really supportive.
  • -Let's just talk about just last year.
  • Because I think -- I knew of you,
  • but "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" was a smash.
  • A giant hit thing. [ Cheers and applause ]
  • Phenomenon. It still is this giant, growing, massive thing.
  • -Yeah.
  • -Did life just change for you overnight with Netflix?
  • -It did. It really did.
  • We premiered the show, and then I woke up the next morning,
  • and my phone was just, like, blowing up.
  • -Wow. -And I checked on my Instagram.
  • There was like millions of followers.
  • And in my head I can only think of
  • that is one million human beings.
  • Just lined up in a row, holding hands around the world.
  • -Holding hands around the world.
  • -Right, and, like, that's all I could think of in my mind.
  • It was crazy. -A great thing to think about.
  • Yeah, of course. -Yeah.
  • -And Noah Centineo. -Yeah.
  • -You guys, I mean, hit it off. [ Cheers and applause ]
  • You guys have great chemistry. -Yeah.
  • -But you said -- you said, you set early boundaries with Noah.
  • -I did.
  • We had just come back from a hot yoga class,
  • and we went to his apartment and we ordered pizza.
  • And it's kind of like, "Oh, hot yoga, pizza?
  • What's happening?"
  • It was right before we shot the movie.
  • -Just trying to get to know each other?
  • -Just getting to know each other.
  • -And did you feel something? -And I felt something.
  • And then, so we went like this and I looked at him.
  • I was like, "Noah.
  • It's not gonna happen between us."
  • [ Laughter ] -Really?
  • -Yeah, because I felt that for the show to do well,
  • we had to be best-friend professionals,
  • and so I was like, "It's just not gonna happen."
  • He's just like, "Yeah, it's not gonna happen."
  • And I was like, "Great."
  • So we kind of did what we did in "To All the Boys" the movie.
  • We kind of, like, made a contract and set boundaries,
  • and then -- I'm so happy that we did that
  • because the movie turned out great
  • and now we're doing a sequel, so I have to work with him again.
  • So imagine. [ Cheers and applause ]
  • -Wait, so -- but -- you still might have that spark?
  • -We still have the spark. Yeah, absolutely.
  • We were just on the phone the other day,
  • just talking about the sequel.
  • Okay.
  • -Just saying, you guys were on the phone and --
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -But, yeah. He's great.
  • -The books are -- There's three of them.
  • Is that correct? -Yeah.
  • -So, if the sequel does well, then you do the third one.
  • -That would be amazing, yeah.
  • -Then after the third one, you really fall in love.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • I want to talk about your -- this new show on SyFy.
  • -Yes. -"Deadly Class."
  • I think it's a brilliant idea.
  • -Uh-huh.
  • -Do you want to explain what it's about?
  • -Yeah. So "Deadly Class" is basically --
  • It's based off of the graphic novel.
  • "Deadly Class" written by Rick Remender,
  • and it's basically about a academy
  • that has all of the children of various gangs and syndicates,
  • all the children go to that academy.
  • -Yeah, like assassins. The children of assassins.
  • -Yeah. Yeah, and so we just kind of learn --
  • -Definitely different from "To All the Boys."
  • -Yes. Yes. No, Lara Jean -- she wouldn't make it.
  • She wouldn't make it at King's Dominion.
  • -It's action-packed. -Yeah.
  • -And this is the Russo brothers? -Yeah, the Russo brothers.
  • -Who did "Captain America" films, and --
  • -Of course.
  • And they're amazing because they are making our show
  • so action-packed, and the choreography and the fighting
  • is very, very realistic and amazing.
  • So they're really supportive of it,
  • and they've been working really hard on our show,
  • and I'm really excited for it to come out.
  • It's coming out on January 16th. -On SyFy. We're all gonna watch.
  • -On SyFy, yeah. [ Cheers and applause ]
  • -We love you, pal. Come back, okay?
  • -Thank you so much.
  • -Thank you for doing that sketch.
  • And I want to show everyone a clip.
  • -Oh, okay.
  • -Here's Lana Condor in the new action series "Deadly Class."
  • It premieres Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. on SyFy.
  • Check this out.
