You see it happen all the time. Two actors will fall in love on set, start a wild romance, and then breakup several months later after the thrill of being on set fades away.
And typically, that’s okay, because the movie is completed and they don’t have to see each other again.
But what happens when they decide to make a sequel? Well, that happened to Joey King and Jacob Elordi. They starred in Netflix’s ‘The Kissing Booth‘ back in 2017, and then fell in lust with each other.
By the end of 2018, their romance was over, but the studio wasn’t done with them. They had to return for a sequel, which had to be a little awkward, considering they play love interests in the film.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, King admitted it wasn’t easy…
No one’s thinking to themselves, That was easy, because it wasn’t. I’m sure people will analyze every movement and every detail. And you know what? Let them. But at the end of the day, I was just thrilled to be Elle Evans again.
Elle Evans needs her Noah Flynn, and whatever that means for my personal life, I’ll do anything to make sure the story of my character who I care about so much is complete.
What’s interesting is that a third Kissing Booth flick will be released next year, but they filmed both sequels at the same time.
Makes you wonder if they decided to film it all at once because that’s all King/Elordi could take.
