The second instalment of The Kissing Booth is here. And this time around two new characters have been introduced to shake things up.  

Taking on his first feature film, Taylor Zakhar Perez plays the role of the new hottie in town - Marco. While British actor, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, brings to life the beautiful, elegant and equally smart Harvard student, Chloe. 

In an interview with Channel24, Taylor and Maisie recalled their time filming in South Africa and spoke about the preparations that went into bringing their characters to life. 

"We were very lucky because we shot in Durban, in Cape Town [and] in Stellenbosch, and you know, Maisie's been to South Africa before, so she had this bucket list of South African activities that she didn't get to do last time. So, I was able to sort of piggyback off of all of those experiences that she accumulated over the past few years," Taylor told us. 

Referring to Cape Town as the "foodie spot", Maisie remembered having some "incredible" meals in the Mother City and also mentioned that she went on safari in Port Elizabeth.
