'Kissing Booth 2' Director Explains Why Extras Were Booing on Set

The director of The Kissing Booth 2 is opening up about how they filmed that big dance competition scene at the end and what happened with the extras on set.

In the smash hit Netflix movie, Joey King‘s character Elle enters a dance competition in hopes of winning tuition money for college and she partners up with Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez), a new kid at school who is also an incredible dancer.

Marco also becomes a threat to Elle’s relationship with Noah (Jacob Elordi), who is off at school at Harvard the entire time.

Writer and director Vince Marcello told Variety, “The concept of the competition being something that would feed her ability to go to Harvard or a higher tuition school became a conflict of that. The guy that is helping her make the money is also the guy threatening her relationship.”

Vince says that Joey and Taylor rehearsed their dance routine in Los Angeles before they filmed it in front of a live audience on set.

“When Marco and Elle came out to shoot that, we had 2500 extras for that shooting day. The second they walked in, that crowd became a full-on audience. They were watching this dance happen with no idea what’s happening in the movie. When Marco and Elle were rehearsing it, the audience was booing because they didn’t want her kissing this other guy. We were backstage and shocked,” Vince revealed. “But after a couple of takes, Jacob arrived, and as soon as he arrived, it was the strangest thing, because it felt like we were watching this moment as he realizes something is going on between them.”

Taylor recently addressed the rumors that he and Joey are now dating in real life.

Joey King Denies She Auditioned for Katara, Says She'd Never Play a Character of Color

Joey King is shutting down rumors that she has auditioned play the role of Katara in the upcoming Netflix live-action series Avatar: The Last Airbender.

A tweet went viral claiming that the 21-year-old actress was spotted at the casting call for the upcoming series.

Joey responded and said, “I have 0 involvement in this project and didn’t know this project even existed until I logged onto twitter today and my timeline was floooded with these rumors. I do not believe a white woman should play a character of color. Not me or any white woman for that matter.”

The series is still in development at Netflix and creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko just announced that they are no longer involved in the project.

DiMartino said, “Unfortunately, things did not go as we had hoped… Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Avatar has the potential to be good. It might turn out to be a show many of you end up enjoying. But what I can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on-screen, it will not be what Bryan and I had envisioned or intended to make.”

The role of Katara was played by Nicola Peltz in the 2010 live-action feature film adaptation of The Last Airbender.

Earlier this week, Joey explained why she deleted one of her recent viral tweets.
