'To All The Boys' Fans Are Noticing A 'Major F*ck Up' With The Characters
But some are *very* confused after spotting the actor who played John Ambrose McLaren in the first movie has now been replaced with a different person.
One person shared an image of the two actors and tweeted: "I just watched to all the boys I've loved before 2 and something's not adding up."
In one image, the original actor, Jordan Burtchett from the first instalment can be seen standing at Lara Jean's front door, meanwhile the second image reveals a new actor, Jordan Fisher.
As fans of All The Boys I've Loved Before will know, John Ambrose showed up at Lara's front door holding his letter and a bunch of flowers in the last film.
But he's a totally new person in the sequel.

Some fans may not be aware, but Jordan Burtchett was replaced by Jordan Fisher in March 2019.
Netflix didn't reveal the reason but speaking to Entertainment Tonight producer Matt Kaplan explained: We auditioned thousands and thousands of people, and when Jordan came on screen, I think, unanimously, Ace and Netflix felt like this was John Ambrose.
"We were fortunate to have someone who has so much pure likability in him, and I think audiences are going to freak out when they see what he's been able to bring to the screen."
I am just wondering why the John Ambrose McClaren at the end of "to all the boys i have loved" isn't the same John Ambrose in the second movie and why him knocking on the door at the end of the first movie was just forgotten? #ToAlltheBoys2 #ToAllTheBoysPSIStillLoveYou

So I realized after watch To All The Boys I've Loved again, I noticed how John Ambrose was a totally different person in the first movie then the second.

"You have grown to be special to me this past year and a half and for that I give thanks and glory to God. You are a gift. You have my heart fam and I'm excited for where the future adventures will lead us."
The second instalment, To All The Boys: PS: I Still Love You, has been much-awaited by fans, with the first film dropping back in August 2018.
