After opens in a few days and the cast celebrated on Monday night at The Grove.

We had the chance to attend the premiere where we chatted with the cast and played a game of “firsts.” They revealed their first reactions to the script, the first time they realized just how big the fanbase was for the books and even their first impressions of leads Hero Fiennes Tiffin & Josephine Langford.

Hero recalled how he thought she was “such a talented” actor and felt the need to meet her level while Josephine kept it short and sweet, “gosh, he’s tall.”

Check out our interviews with the cast and Anna Todd above. For photos from the premiere, go here.
