'The Last Summer' star Tyler Posey can relate to his character Ricky's tendency to rush into relationships
Ahead of the release of 'The Last Summer', the romantic comedy slated for a May 3 release on Netflix, Tyler Posey, one of the actors in the film, shed light on his idea of diving into relationships quickly and later regretting it. Posey plays Ricky Santos, a character who jumps into relationships without any hesitation or thought and later goes on to regret it when the relationship goes kaput.
When asked if he had such experiences in real life, Posey said his romances when he was a kid were "intense and quick." The romantic comedy-drama will feature Maia Mitchell (The Fosters) as the main character's (KJ Apa as Griffin) romantic entanglement. "As a kid, I would dive right in," Posey told MEA Worldwide (MEAWW). "This is something similar that happens to my character in the movie. He (Santos) starts relationships quickly, I don't think he understands each other's intentions behind it."
Posey is no stranger to his character's arc. "I have been in a relationship before and I am really right into it. Diving head first and then realize that something seems off and that it doesn't feel right. So yeah, I can kind of relate to that," he shared.
The 'Truth or Dare' star added the intention was never to hurt somebody and these are errors that could happen to anyone. "You never want to hurt anyone, or make anybody sad and hurt their feelings," he added. "I learned a lot from these experiences. To be honest, it's not fun to deal with the guilt or hurt somebody."
'The Last Summer' follows a group of recent high school graduates as they experience their final summer before heading to college. The bunch will navigate the world of love, relationships, and their adulthood ahead.
Directed by William Bindley, 'The Last Summer' will see KJ Apa (Riverdale) play the lead and will also star Sosie Bacon, Wolfgang Novogratz, Gabrielle Anwar, Ed Quinn, Jacob McCarthy, Mario Revolori, Gage Golightly, and Norman Johnson, Jr.
'The Little Summer' releases May 3 on Netflix.
