How did you land the opportunity to co-star in The Kissing Booth 3? What was it like onset?
Well, I was in the previous two films. I was cast as Rachel in 2017. It’s strange to think how long she and the films have been part of my life. No one predicted the success of the first film and I was thrilled to learn Rachel’s role would be expanded in the two subsequent films. Being back on set with everyone was like being reunited with family, with old friends.
What's the secret of acting when you have to kiss a total stranger?
Remembering it’s acting. Its Rachel kissing Lee. My job is to tell Rachel’s story and part of that story is her kissing Lee.
How has fame and success changed your life?
It’s hard for me to connect to the word ‘fame’. I know I get recognized more now. I have fans, I have a blue tick and that has opened various opportunities for me. In terms of success, well I think of myself as successful because I continue to pursue the work I love in a very fickle industry. It takes a great deal of stamina and dedication and perseverance behind the scenes even after coming off a franchise. I have a ten year career in this industry that I’m continuing to build on. That’s huge. A lot of people don’t make it this far.
How do you stay grounded?
‘My friends and family. ’
Where in the world would you love to visit or live that you have or have not already?
‘I would love to visit Iceland. And to live, I’ve been to London a number of times but it’s a dream of mine to live there. '
What would you have told yourself 5 years ago?Oh gosh that would be 2016?
That’s hard. Do I tell myself about The Kissing Booth? Or Moving to Canada? Or the pandemic? I probably would just say: a lot of things are going to happen in the next five years, lots of highs and lows, but you’ll be alright. You’re going to be fine.
What's your beauty or healthy life routine?
Hydration and SPF.
What TV or movie have you seen and thought darn I could have rock that role!
There’s no way I could have done the role better that Kaley Cuoco, but I would have loved to be on the Flight Attendant.
What other projects do you have in 2022 that we should watch out for and how can fans reach out to you via social media?
Follow me on Instagram, @meganneyoung_, and you’ll find out all the things there when I’m allowed to share them!
