But that’s not only what the actors shared during the interview— Condor also disclosed a fun fact that will make her Filipino fans extremely happy!
Filipino Food Obsession
Lana shared that when she was in high school, she had a Filipino close friend who would bring lumpia to school as her baon. “I became so obsessed [with lumpia] that I would force my friend to force her mother to make me my own private batch,” she says while laughing.
But it’s not just Lana from the To All The Boys cast who loves the fried finger food— even her co-actor Ross loves it! “I have a lot of Filipino friends and we’d get Filipino food in San Francisco. And I love it [lumpia],” Ross explains.
And to be honest, who wouldn’t love it? Even other Hollywood celebrities have proclaimed their love for the tasty Filipino classic! (Read: Trust us, These Netflix Food Shows Teach the Best Kitchen Hacks!)

Award-winning American rapper Cardi B said lumpia was “good as hell” in one of her Instagram stories last year. She also posted that she got to taste buko salad and pancit bihon, thanks to her uncle’s wife of 22 years who is Filipino.
“I guess it’s a Philippine fruit salad, it tastes wild good. My uncles’s wife cooked it,” the rapper said about buko salad. (Read: Filipino Restaurant in New York Makes Headlines for Delicious Dishes)
And just recently, Florence Pugh who is known for the films Midsommar and Little Women also shared her love for the Filipino dish. In her Instagram story last month, Florence shared that her childhood best friend was half Filipino and her best friend’s mom was really good at cooking.
“I grew up eating lumpia and would literally count down the days until I’d eat it again,” she posted, “She [her best friend’s mom] knew I loved them and would make a batch, freeze them, package them up for me to take home after our sleepover.”
