All about love! As The Summer I Turned PrettyFans were caught between Team Conrad & Team Jeremiah by the cast of Prime Video, which has seen sparks fly in their personal love lives.
After the show debuted in June 2022, viewers quickly fell in love with Belly’s (Lola Tung) adventures in Cousins Beach and her love triangle with brothers Jeremiah (Gavin CasalegnoConrad (Christopher Briney). For Casalegno, it was important to show how Jeremiah’s feelings for Belly grew after so many years of them just being friends.
“I think with our relationship, and with our romantic relationship with Belly, it was so much fun just being able to explore the authenticity of it and the genuineness. Just it being so genuine,” he told J-14It was a great time. “It was so much fun to work with Lola on screen. Everything just seemed to flow super smoothly. I know everyone’s going to love it.”
The Texas native was also praised for her work as a writer and showrunner Jenny Hanfor allowing his character’s sexuality to be explored. “That’s where I think Jenny did a beautiful job with her writing and not making it something that was like, like every [part of the character],” Casalegno explained during an interview with Seventeen in June 2022. “It wasn’t everything — it was just a nice little treat on the side, and I think it really just goes to show how amazing Jenny is with updating her work and bringing it to today’s world, because it’s so different now.”
He continued: “Honestly, I was so honored to be a part of that change and that direction of where we were taking it and [bringing]That diversity. And I think it’s so important to have that. I think it’s so special. Jeremiah is always he’s figuring out, more and more, who he is and that’s just a part of him. It’s a beautiful process, and I just have Jenny to thank for that completely.”
As for his off screen love life, Casalegno opened up about being a “hopeless romantic” who prefers making grand gestures for girlfriend Larsen Thompson.
“I think the craziest gesture was when my current girlfriend had her 16th birthday party and I had only spent like a week with her at that point,” he recalled to the magazine. “I secretly bought a plane ticket out to go surprise her for her 16th. Her parents brought her to some restaurant at Universal Studios and I jumped out of the corner and fake proposed with a Hershey’s kiss. I didn’t know that her dad was right there and it was my first time meeting him. It was quite funny. We laugh about it now, but I haven’t found a length that I wouldn’t go to make a romantic gesture.”
However, his romantic partner Briney has remained faithful to him. Isabela Rose Machado more low-key so far. Machado supported her boyfriend by walking with him on the red carpet in June 2022. The Summer I Turned Pretty premiere in New York City.
