A Pinetree secondary graduate is in a teen romantic comedy released this month on Netflix.
Julie Tao plays Haven — the cousin to the main character, Lara Jean — in the flick To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.
Tao, a former usher and gallery greeter at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre, told The Tri-City News she won the role after an audition.
The 23-year-old has been in the Vancouver film industry for a decade.
Tao wasn’t in the original film, To All the Boys I've Loved Before, as her character didn’t appear until the second trilogy book, written by Jenny Han. The sequel also includes John Corbett and Holland Taylor.
The third film, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean, is now in post-production.
