Taylor Zakhar Perez participated in the last two The Kissing Booth films – and showed passion for the franchise
Interpreter of Marco Valentin Peña in The Kissing Booth 2 (2020) and The Kissing Booth 3 (2021), Taylor Zakhar Perez responded to criticism from Jacob Elordiwho commented on how the films are “ridiculous” without “original ideas,” to the franchise.
At the party GQ in Men of the Year, Perez spoke to Variety and was asked about the comments of Elordi. “I thought it was a shame because, as far as I know, everyone had a wonderful experience,” he said in the conversation.
It’s a shame that [aquela] was his experience on set. Especially when these movies came out, it was a time when we really needed something like this.
“I know from fan interactions, being stopped wherever I go, what The Kissing Booth means to people and what it brought them during such a dark time,” the actor continued. “I think the silver lining is that he still made people laugh and feel good.”
