‘The Kissing Booth 3’ actor Bianca Bosch spills the tea on what to expect in the upcoming film
In this exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), 'The Kissing Booth' actor Bianca Bosch reveals what to expect in part 3 and why her character Olivia is important to this world
'The Kissing Booth 3' release is still quite far off, however, there is no reason for us to not be excited for another installment of Netflix's summer romance series starring Joey King, Jacob Elordi, and Joel Courtney in lead roles. Actor Bianca Bosch, who plays the role of one of the OMG Girls, Olivia, in an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) spilled the tea on what one can expect in the upcoming installment of the film, what it was like for her to work with a young cast and why she believes that her character doesn't belong to the same mold as the high school mean girl stereotype.
Olivia belongs to a high school clique known as the OMG Girls, and on the surface, the characters of this clique seem to come off as high school mean girls, hordes of whom we have seen in a variety of high school movies. However, Bosch believes that the OMG girls were not really from the same mold as 'Mean Girls' and explained, "The OMG girls were never meant to be portrayed as mean, they are just the popular 'it girl group' at high school that everyone knows and wants to be a part of. They live in their exaggerated, heightened bubble, that is very much self-centered. They always have to be the first to know of who or what’s going down and whether they want a piece of it."
She further added, "They are superior unto themselves and are more interested in their own lives rather than hurting anybody around them, which makes them comical, and gives the story a dramatic yet playful feel." Bosch also spoke about why Olivia's character was important to 'The Kissing Booth' world and said, "There always has to be a character that’s stirring the pot and keeping things interesting. In this case, it’s Olivia, when she delivers the news to Elle about Chloe, Noah’s new 'love' interest at college. She adds spice to the scenes, whether it’s kissing the most people at the booth, or giving one of her famous, exaggerated eye rolls!"
Were OMG girls meant to seem passive-aggressive then during their interaction with Elle and Lee? For instance, what about the time when the three girls sit down to tell Elle that she should now be prepared for heartbreak as Noah is among women who are hotter, and more evolved. Bosch expanded on this scene and said, "In no way do the girls ever intend on breaking Elle down, it’s more them relaying information and foreshadowing the drama that is yet to unfold. Portraying this was fun because it’s very different from who I am in real life, as I prefer to stay away from drama and would never be the one to stir the pot. In order to get to this level of emotion, I had to tap into a subtle jealously that exists in all of us, where we may be quick to point out possible disappointments in the lives of others in order to give us a sense of security. "
Considering the fact that 'The Kissing Booth 3' has already been confirmed, we also asked Bosch about what audiences should expect from the third installment of the film and Olivia did spill the tea. She said to "Expect a lot more drama and a lot more dancing!"
