But when did they first meet and are they dating in real life? Here’s what you need to know…

When did Noah Centineo and Lana Condor first meet?

The pair first met on the set of To All The Boys back in 2017 and it turns out their first conversation was pretty awkward!

Noah joined The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon earlier this month and spoke about their first encounter, saying: “What I like to do with my auditions is, I like to run lines before the actual chemistry reading and before the actual audition with other people in the room because I feel like it’s a good way to break the ice.

“I see Lana at the chemistry reading and I didn’t realise that she had booked the role … I thought she was also there for chemistry reading as one of three girls like I was one of three guys. And I was like, ‘Hey do you maybe wanna run lines?’ and she was like ‘Nah, I’m OK.'”

Lana also recalled their first encounter in an interview with MTV News, where she revealed the real reason she declined was in case she got distracted, and honestly, we feel her.

She said: “I went in for pre-reads for the audition process and I look up and I see this gorgeous, tall, beautiful man that is Noah walk through the door. And I was like 'NOT TODAY' and I kept reading my sides, like 'I will not get distracted, I will not get distracted'.

"And I start feeling his presence coming towards me and he sits down right next to me. He was like 'hey, do you want to read lines together?' and I was like 'no sorry' and went back to reading my sides.”

Years later and they’ve finally overcome the extremely awks moment!

Speaking to Cosmopolitan UK, Noah revealed that the pair are super comfortable around each other, saying: "I would say that we’re like a married couple at this point. Whenever we get together you feel extraordinarily comfortable with the person because I’ve worked with her for three and a half years now and it’s very seamless. It’s wonderful."

Lana went on to add heartwarming words about her co-star, saying: "From the first moment I met him in the chemistry reads for the first film I just knew that... like we speak the same language. Our hearts kind of thump the same way... We’re very similar and often at times we know what each other is thinking, and I think that’s really special."

Most recently, Noah praised his Netflix co-star Lana Condor after they won the award for Best Movie for To All the Boys: Always and Forever at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards, in May.

Lana accepted it on behalf of both of them alongside the author of the novels the films are based on, Jenny Han, and Noah couldn't wait to gush over the actress!

Sharing snaps of Lana on Instagram, he wrote: "Per usual @lanacondor holding it down and carrying us over the finish line while I sleep in. Thank you everyone who supported us over the last 4 years. @mtv my dads gonna be hype about this one."

Ahhh, we just love them!
