He’s stealing hearts! Gavin Casalegno has become a household name since making his debut as Jeremiah in Prime Video’s The Summer I Turned Pretty in June 2022. The young actor has been in a ton of popular TV shows and movies like 2014’s Noah, The Vampire Diaries, Walker and more before heading to Cousins Beach
The Summer I Turned Pretty tells the story of a love triangle between two brothers and one girl who are childhood best friends. The Noah star will play Jeremiah, brother of Conrad who is played by Chris Briney, and one of the love interests of Belly, played by Lola Tung.
The series is based off of a book series by Jenny Han, who is also author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before which eventually became a huge hit movie series on Netflix.
“Oh my gosh, I have such butterflies about it because my readers have been waiting for so long,” Han, who also serves as showrunner/executive producer, told Entertainment Weekly. “I just really want them to feel satisfied by the long wait and feel like the story has come to life in the way that they were hoping for. I hope fans swoon a lot. The first time I walked on set, I cried.”
Fans are specifically very excited about the trio will play Jeremiah, Belly and Conrad. “No thoughts just jeremiah fisher from the summer i turned pretty,” wrote one fan on Twitter with photos of Gavin. Same, girl.
The first season covered the first book. Han is hopeful for two more seasons — the second is set to premiere in July 2023 — to bring the next two books in the series to life, including It’s Not Summer Without You and We’ll Always Have Summer which also features Jeremiah!
