EXCLUSIVE: Max Harwood, Lauren Patel and Jonathan Butterell Discuss ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ [Video]
“‘There could be 100 people in the room and you just need one person to believe in you'”. A message we took from Max Harwood, star of Amazon’s original movie, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie directed by Jonathan Butterell and written by Tom MacRae. During our zoom sit down, we had the pleasure of catching up with cast members Max Harwood (Jamie) and Lauren Patel (Pretti) about their experience bringing their roles to life. We also sat down with director Jonathan Butterell, to discuss his directorial debut.
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie follows the journey of Jamie New, a teenage boy from Sheffield, United Kingdom, played by Max Harwood. We see Jamie as he navigates his senior year of school full of uncertainty for his future while dreaming of a life on stage as a drag queen after graduation. Luckily, with the help of his family and friends, Jamie gains the ability to not only embrace his newfound self but to change the narrative behind what life should look like after graduation. Inspired by the true story of Jamie Campbell, the movie takes a personal look into the challenges and silver linings of being Jamie Campbell.

I have zero qualms about scrolling through a stranger’s profile, checking on exes, reading tabloids, et all. If it’s available I might as well eat it up, right?
Mario Kart racing, flash mob scenes, and a love triangle (or square?) for the ages: It does sound like “The Kissing Booth 3” is a “surreal” conclusion to the beloved YA Netflix series, so it’s no wonder star Meganne Young wants to reflect on the five-year journey to make the three films.
Meganne has appeared in The CW’s Supernatural, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Starz’s Black Sails, and the award-winning National Geographic series, Saints and Strangers. But to Netflix lovers, the South African-born star is most recognizable as Rachel in The Kissing Booth franchise.
“It still feels surreal in so many ways and I’m continuously grateful for this ride,” Meganne told The Knockturnal. “I think I’ve become a lot more confident in myself, a lot more settled, and I would say the same for Rachel.”
The summer-centric film follows Elle (Joey King) as she decides to attend college either with her boyfriend (Jacob Elordi) or with her best friend (Joel Courtney), whom Rachel (Young) is dating. “I can absolutely relate to both characters,” Meganne explained of the predicament of long-distance relationships. “It’s not for the faint of heart. You learn a lot about the importance of good communication.”
As for what’s next in Meganne’s life now that she’s kissed The Kissing Booth farewell, she stayed coy. “I have a few things in the pipeline but I’m not able to share just yet,” Meganne hinted. “Hopefully soon!”
“The Kissing Booth 3” is now streaming on Netflix.
