heart stopper Season 2 (and Season 3) is in development, but while we wait for new episodes it looks like the stars are busy with new and exciting projects! Kit Connor, who plays Nick Nelson in the Netflix series, was recently cast in the upcoming film adaptation of A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Morningbased on New York Times Bestselling novel penned by Laura Taylor Namey, Reports meeting.
A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Morning is a hugely popular YA novel thanks to its gripping romance and contemporary style. Fans also flocked to the book because Namey is a proud Cuban American and the novel features Cuban representation in the form of its protagonist, Lila Reyes, and her family.
The story revolves around Lila’s story after the death of her grandmother. After spending most of her life working in her Abuela’s Cuban bakery in Miami, Lila moves to Winchester to spend the summer cooking at her aunt’s inn. She is enchanted by the British countryside and, more specifically, a charming tea shop clerk.
Who does Kit Connor play in A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow?
We don’t yet know the exact roles the leads will play, but we can probably assume Kit will play Lila’s love interest, Orion. Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin Star Maia Reficco has been cast likely as Lila and Kate del Castillo from La Reina del Sur Fame was also tapped to star in the film.
Though Kit is in a new movie, don’t worry about his role in heart stopper be reduced! Between seasons, actors often do movies and even other television shows. We don’t yet know when the next season of the Netflix series will go into production, so I’m sure Kit’s team has everything in place to ensure his filming commitments don’t interfere with his return to the show.
While details on the exact roles of Connor, del Castillo and Reficco have not been released, meeting revealed that documentary filmmaker Katherine Fairfax Wright (call me kuchu) will direct and thus make her feature film debut. Savion Einstein (Miss conception) and Khaila Amazan (Anderson .Paaks forthcoming K-POPS!) will write the screenplay.
ACE Entertainment will finance and produce the feature film, with production based in Yorkshire, England. Max Siemers, Matt Janzen and Aubrey Bendix are overseeing production for the company and Mark Lane is executive producing for TeaShop Films.
