Below you’ll find a list of all the major characters you need to know in the cast of XO, Kitty
According to Netflix, XO, Kitty “revolves around the teen matchmaker who moves halfway across the world to reunite with her long-distance boyfriend and soon realizes that relationships are a lot more complicated when it’s your own heart on the line.”
The plot has Kitty joining a new school, so obviously she has a ton of new classmates and friends, which we’ll get into.
Kitty: Anna Cathcart
Kitty is the enigmatic youngest Covey sister, who was the one to originally release all of the letters that Lara Jean wrote in the first film. She’s somewhat of a mischievous matchmaker, but her skills will be put to the limit when it’s her own love life. This series also gives her emotional moments surrounding her late mother, as she is travelling to South Korea to connect with her.
Kitty is played by Anna Cathcart, who can also be seen in Odd Squad and Disney’s Descendants 3.
Dae: Choi Min-young
In To All the Boys: Always and Forever, the Covey family takes a trip to South Korea to celebrate their heritage, as well as reminisce about the life of their late mother. On a Love Lock Bridge near Seoul Tower, he and Kitty meet, and sparks instantly fly, to the point that Kitty is now moving to Korea to see him. The Seoul native is one of the top students at KISS and incredibly happy to see Kitty, but relationships, both online and off, prove to be somewhat difficult.
Dae is played by Choi Min-young, who has recently performed in Twenty-Five Twenty-One and Dream Palace.
Daniel Covey & Trina: John Corbett & Sarayu Blue
The father of the Covey household, Daniel, AKA Dr Covey plays a guiding and goofy role in the franchise, as he happily lets Kitty go off to college, before questioning whether or not that’s the right descision.
Trina joined the cast in the second TATB movie, as the Covey’s neighbor and later Dr Covey’s girlfriend. She’s a very warm and caring figure, and seems to be rather the opposite of the evil stepmother trope.
Obviously, John Corbett, who plays Dr Covey, isn’t short on work. He’s most known for My Big Fat Greek Wedding, for playing Aiden in Sex and the City, and is about the join the cast of And Just Like That for Season 2.
