If you've binged Prime Video's The Summer I Turned Pretty, I'm willing to bet you want to know everything about the film's star, newcomer Lola Tung! If you fit that description, you've come to the right place. In this episode of Collider Ladies Night Pre-Party, we recap how Tung went from playing the Tin Man in a school production of The Wizard of Oz to headlining the latest Jenny Han adaption for Amazon.
Tung leads the series as Belly, a teenager who always spends her summers at Cousins Beach with her family and their close friends the Fishers. Belly's always been the youngest of the bunch, the little sister to her brother Steven (Sean Kaufman) and also to the Fisher boys, Conrad (Christopher Briney) and Jeremiah (Gavin Casalegno). That kind of connection and coming-of-age awkwardness hasn't done much for Belly's crush on Conrad, but this summer is different. This is the summer Belly "turned pretty."
Check out this The Summer I Turned Pretty interview to get to know Tung and to hear all about her journey from studying drama in school to tackling her very first professional acting gig.
