Heartstopper Kit Connor

Netflix’s “Heartstopper” Star Kit Connor might be preparing to film season 2 of his hit Netflix series but he’s also ready to make his debut as the leading man in the upcoming film “A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow”!!

The Latinx YA novel, originally published by Simon & Schuster’s Atheneum Books for Young Readers in 2019, follows the heartfelt story of Lila Reyes. After the loss of her grandmother, Lila leaves her life at Abuela’s Cuban bakery in Miami to spend the summer cooking at her aunt’s inn in Winchester. It’s there that she falls in love with the quaint British countryside, fusion cooking and a charming British tea shop clerk…ultimately using food as a way to bridge two cultures and heal her heart. Per Deadline.

Kit is rumored to play Orion, the love interest to Lila.

Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin Star Maia Reficco was also cast and she’s rumored to portray Lila.

Filmmaker Katherine Fairfax Wright will direct, in her narrative feature debut, from a screenplay by Khaila Amazan (Anderson .Paak’s upcoming K-POPS!) and Savion Einstein (Miss Conception). Matt Kaplan will produce for ACE Entertainment, which is also financing the feature, with Max Siemers, Matt Janzen and Aubrey Bendix overseeing production for the company, and Mark Lane exec producing on behalf of TeaShop Films.
