Jordan Fisher played John Ambrose in Netflix’s new film To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. The movie is a sequel to Netflix’s hit 2018 teen romance movie, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is based on the YA romance novel of the same name by author Jenny Han.

Jordan Fisher’s character, John Ambrose McClaren, is an old crush of Lara Jean (Lana Condor) and one of the recipients of Lara’s secret love letters that her younger sister Kitty (Anna Cathcart) mailed.

John Ambrose replies to Lara Jean’s love letter, and they reunite at her after-school volunteer activity at the Belleview retirement home.

John returns to Lara Jean’s life after she started dating her former pretend-boyfriend Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo). John becomes Kavinsky’s rival for Lara Jean’s love, leaving her in the middle of a love triangle and torn between two boys in her life.

John Ambrose is a studious, intellectual, well-mannered, and easygoing teenager, unlike the charismatic heartthrob Peter Kavinsky, portrayed by Noah Centineo.
