Most likely you know Lana Condor from Netflix movies To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and the sequel TABILB: P.S. I Still Love You. You can also find her in X-Men: Apocalypse as Jubilee and Alita: Battle Angel as Saya Kuroki. There’s a lot to love about her, but let’s just give you our top 5 for starters.
New YouTuber Alert
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you read that right. Lana now has a YouTube channel. She uploaded her first video on February 5th and she seems so excited. Many in the comments are happy with her video recording coming across as an everyday, typical Youtuber. Her personality shines not just from her color palette choices but her comfort with the camera. We’ve gotta say, props to her and maybe the next beauty guru?
Speaking of beauty gurus and style, we arrive at reason number two that you should stan Lana Condor: her outfits are snatched. Pink isn’t just a Wednesday color for this girl. Taking a scroll down her Instagram feed tells you she is fashionable and looks good in what she wears. Lana has the sassy poses and walk to go along with it. Don’t believe us? Just look at these dresses!
She can rock the beauty scene and everyday looks. Her sassy and quirky personality just shines.
Yes, yes, we know her movies are based on books. If you haven’t, you should give them a read. While there are many celebrities that star in movies based on books, it’s always refreshing when we can see their bibliophile ways. If you check out Lana’s Instagram you can find a highlight titled ‘Books!’. She has highlighted some of her favorite quotes, rates books, and commentary.

Lana Condor loves food and I think we can all relate to that one. Her roots are in Vietnam, but she grew up in America in the Chicago area. We can see she loves everything from oriental food, to pizza, and to that well-deserved shot of tequila (tequila’s food, don’t judge!). To see just how much she loves food you can find highlights on her Instagram of anything from ‘Paris Eats’ to just out right ‘More Food!’
Advocating for Equality
Not only is she an advocate for equality, but for Asia and world travel too. She’s very open about sharing the places she’s been and the things she has experienced. With that comes a sense of empathy and wanting to make a better world for everyone in it!
Just look at her social media platforms and you’ll find links to Girls Opportunity Alliance fundraiser as well as links for Girls Education, and the Asia Foundation. Like Uncle Ben has always told us, “With great power comes great responsibility.” and our girl is killing it.
Lana Condor is an all-around powerful, down to Earth, and loving woman that YOU should go check out.
