Every once in a while, a series comes along that's so steamy, you can't help but fall in love with the actors who play the iconic parts. The After series, based on the novels of the same name by Anna Todd, is the definition of one of those sultry watches. The first film adaption was released in 2019, and now with the second film finally out in the U.S., it's time to do some digging and find your off-screen crush. Judging by the After We Collided cast's Instagrams, the actors are just as smokin' IRL.
In case you were too distracted by the sex scenes to pay attention to the plot, here's a quick recap: Tessa (Josephine Langford) heads off to college, where she meets bad-boy Hardin Scott (Hero Fiennes Tiffin). Naturally, she ends things with her high school boyfriend Noah (Dylan Arnold) and the two get together. Unfortunately, she learns Hardin got with her as part of a bet and the first film ends while the two are broken up.
After watching the trailer for After We Collided (and reading the book, if you're a fan of spoilers), it's clear the drama —and steamy hookups — are just getting started. Take a peek at the faces you'll be seeing on-screen and in your dreams now that the second installment is available to watch in the U.S.
1. Josephine Langford As Tessa Young
The star of the film doesn't have a ton of photos to sift through, but what she lacks in quantity she makes up for in quality. Langford's grid is full of skyline shots and "standing in front of cool wall" poses. While she hasn't posted in over a year (and she doesn't follow anyone), here's hoping that changes with the U.S. release of After We Collided.
2. Hero Fiennes Tiffin As Hardin Scott
"Smolder city, population: Hero" might as well be Fiennes Tiffin's handle. The leading man of the series is obviously not camera shy (something to be absolutely thankful for); he posts tons of press photos, shots of his travels, and cute pics of his little sister for his 5.9 million followers to gush over.
3. Dylan Sprouse As Trevor Matthews
There's a good chance you already follow Dylan Sprouse on Insta, but if you don't, you're probably scratching your head at the above pic. The Disney Channel alumnus is notorious for archiving his photos on his feed; he usually only releases a new pic for a short while before hiding it. Stay on your toes if you want to see everything Sprouse posts to IG (or just follow his girlfriend Barbara Palvin if you're in desperate need for some insight).
4. Charlie Weber As Christian Vance
5. Candice King As Kimberly Vance
Even though her days playing Caroline Forbes on The Vampire Diaries have passed, Candice King is just as charming on IG as she was playing the blonde vamp on The CW. Her Insta is full selfies, styled shoots, political calls for action, and promotions for her podcast, Directionally Challenged, which she co-hosts with another Vampire Diaries alumna, Kayla Ewell (Vicki Donovan).
5. Shane Paul McGhie As Landon Gibson
6. Samuel Larsen As Zed Evans
7. Selma Blair As Carol Young
It's hard not to be a fan of Selma Blair after her memorable roles in The Sweetest Thing, Cruel Intentions, and of course, Legally Blonde. Her Instagram shows that not only is she a total smokeshow, but when she isn't starring in culturally iconic movies, she's splashing in her pool and excelling at #MomLife.
8. Karimah Westbrook As Karen Scott
If you're not already a fan of Karimah Westbrook after seeing her on All American, you will be after scrolling through her pics. When she's not posing with the cast of After We Collided or rocking gowns like it's her job (which I guess it sort of is?), she's spotlighting Black creators and posting fun activities for her followers to try out.
9. Khadijha Red Thunder As Steph Jones
10. Inanna Sarkis As Molly Samuels
11. Pia Mia As Tristan
12. Dylan Arnold As Noah Porter
