Everyone who’s already in love with Noah Centineo’s Peter Kavinsky from Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before has a different moment where they fell in love.
Some people say it’s when he twirled Lara Jean around in the cafeteria. Some say it was when he bashfully splashed the hot tub water when she didn’t realize she liked him, but others point to what is known as The Popcorn Save as the moment they knew Peter Kavinsky was truly a good egg.
The Popcorn Save is pivotal because the simple action of Peter moving a bowl of popcorn from the couch before going in for a pillowfight with Lara Jean’s little sister shows in action that Peter is a thoughtful, conscientious person — he showed up for a movie night and didn’t mind spending time with his date’s little sister, he was kind enough to include said little sister in the fun instead of making her feel like a third wheel, and most importantly he didn’t want to make a mess in Lara Jean’s house in the name of said fun.
To make this little moment even better, Netflix’s official “See What’s Next” Twitter account confirmed to a Popcorn Save enthusiast that the adorable moment between Peter and Lara Jean’s little sister, in which he moves a bowl of popcorn off the couch before going in for a pillow fight, was completely improvised by Noah Centineo.
Noah improvising that moment means that not only is his character a spatially aware king, but that Noah is one himself! That’s one step closer to the 22-year-old actor literally being the Peter Kavinsky of everyone’s dreams.
