I’ve added some new portraits to the gallery from Noah’s shoot for Noah’s new Associated Press feature. Check out the pics and the article below!
The “instant” stardom has been a long-time coming for Centineo, a Florida-native who decided he wanted to act at age 8. At 15, after appearing on the Disney Channel’s “Austin & Ally,” he convinced his family to move out to Los Angeles full-time. When he arrived, he was always working and auditioning, but it was, as he describes it, “a slow climb.”
In fact, right before he was cast on the Freeform show “The Fosters” at age 18, he had a crisis of confidence wondering if he should even be an actor. He wasn’t able to book jobs or go out on auditions for six months because of a Disney pilot that never ended up going to series and felt that he’d lost his sense of purpose.
“It got dark,” Centineo said. “I’m like what am I doing with my life? Who cares if I’m an actor? Who cares if I’m successful? And as soon as I realized yeah this isn’t for me…my life, my career, everything I do should be for others, there should be a deeper purpose outside of wanting to get money and be famous and live my own passion, that’s when ‘The Fosters’ hit and I don’t believe in coincidence.”

Noah Centineo first started landing film and TV parts in his early teens, and for the past four years, the Miami native has seen his profile and his fan base steadily grow, thanks to his role as the easygoing Jesus Foster on Freeform’s The Fosters and as pop star Camila Cabello’s love interest in her “Havana” music video. The Fosters ended its five-season run this June, but Centineo will reprise his role with cameo appearances in its upcoming spinoff Good Trouble. He’s also forging ahead into film: the 22-year-old actor stars in two Netflix rom-coms, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, out now, and Sierra Burgess is a Loser, out this Friday. In both movies, he plays the romantic interest of the female leads, an opportunity he relishes. “I’m a hopeless romantic,” he says. “I think I have a lot more to give in that space.”
Centineo talked to PAPER about his love for romantic comedies, working with Camila Cabello and the advice from the late Garry Marshall that has stuck with him.
How did you get into acting?
It wasn’t really my choice. My sister had an opportunity to audition for an agency in West Palm Beach, Florida. I was seven or eight at the time, so my mom dragged me because we couldn’t find a babysitter. When I got there they were like, “Are you going to audition, too?” I was like, “No.” I did it [anyway] and we both ended up signing with the agency. My sister booked a modeling gig in Philadelphia and never wanted to be in front of the camera again. I fell in love with it.
What do you consider your big break?
I don’t know because that sets a milestone and I like to think my big break is always ahead of me. I remember the first show that came out where people started to recognize me and I could be identified as who I am — Austin & Ally on Disney.

Noah is featured on The Wrap with an amazing new black & white photoshoot and an article. In it, he talks about his character in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. You can view all of the photos in the gallery and watch the video below!
Peter Kavinsky — err, Noah Centineo, — stopped by TheWrap last week to talk the phenomenon that is his new Netflix film “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.” The actor, who is also starring in the streamer’s upcoming flick “Sierra Burgess Is a Loser,” told us all about his adorable on-screen relationship with co-star Lana Condor. Including the moment he thinks Peter first falls in love with Lara Jean Covey.
“From the beginning, Peter is interested, like from that first remark about her shoes,” Centineo told us in the interview above. “In his first scene, we meet Peter, I think he’s interested. But I think he really, really realizes this is the girl for him in the kitchen scene when they’re at Peter’s house and they’re kind of just opening up their family history to each other.”
Centineo also told us he was “absolutely” a Peter and Lara Jean shipper from the very beginning.
