Quotes

“I hadn’t read The Summer I Turned Pretty until I booked the role, but I was a fan of the To All The Boys movies and I did often Netflix party them with my friends because they were so wonderful. It’s unbelievable, I can’t believe [I’m part of The Summer I Turned Pretty].”

“[By playing Belly] I learned to sort of just go easy on myself a little bit because I think especially as a teenage girl, she’s very hard on herself. I’m very hard on myself and she’s going through so much and making mistakes and that’s only natural.”

“We all make mistakes and that’s how you learn and that’s part of growing up. I’ve very much tried to just take a little bit of the pressure off myself and just be more present and enjoy things as they come.”

“I feel like a lot of people — especially Gen Z — put so much pressure on themselves. We wanna do everything all at once and it can be hard to do that. It’s good to take care of yourself and make sure you have the energy to make one thing great and not put, you know, 50% into more than one thing.”

“I think [fame] can be overwhelming at times, but I am really grateful that, for the most part, there’s been such a positive reaction [to the show].”

“When fans come up to us on the street, it’s really lovely and they’re so sweet. Having a wonderful support system, from my parents to Jenny to the cast, has helped a lot, too, in that you’re never alone in feeling overwhelmed or stressed. It’s OK to feel those things while also feeling grateful and happy.”

“Growing up in New York did allow me to find my own sense of style while admiring other people’s. You can really form your own look and I feel like I’ve always had a little bit of an edge to my personal style.”

“I like to spend time outside and I like to play guitar, but I’m not too great at it. I also like to journal, write poetry, and listen to music. I love Lizzy McAlpine — I will just shuffle her music and listen to it for hours.”

Lola Tung is a budding actress in showbiz who still has plenty of things to offer. And as fans, let’s make sure that we will always support her every step of the way.
