When Did ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Star Noah Centineo Find Out He Wanted to Become an Actor?

Actor has become something of a sensation because of the popularity of the Netflix film To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and its sequel, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. Reflecting on his experience becoming an actor with NPR, Centineo reveals that the acting bug bit him very early on.

Centineo explains that it was the feeling he got from the audience that led him to pursuing acting:

“You know what it was, I started doing plays in third grade. And I was a very shy kid when I was younger, I was very sensitive, and wasn’t good at meeting new people. And I think in third grade, once I started to do improv and learn what acting was, and becoming a character, I found this confidence, and I loved the feeling of being on stage. I was Mowgli in The Jungle Book in fifth grade, and was running around with this leotard on. And I think, just honestly, maybe it was the adoration, you know, the applause at the end and then the rush of just like being in front of people and making them laugh. Maybe it was the attention, I don’t know, but I started just knowing that I felt euphoric when I was doing it, and I wanted to keep doing it. And then it’s progressed over the years to something that I just really love, and I take as the opportunity to share ideas and stories.”
