Celeste O'Connor's Love Advice Is Simple but So Necessary
In our Q&A series POPSUGAR Crush, we get to know some of our favorite celebs’ more intimate details — from their first celebrity crush to the best love advice they’ve ever received. This month, we’re crushing on Ghostbusters: Afterlife star Celeste O’Connor.
Celeste O’Connor is going places. The 22-year-old was recently added to the cast of Zach Braff’s forthcoming project, but before we see them in A Good Person, Celeste will be gracing the big screen in Ghostbusters: Afterlife. “My character in Ghostbusters is named Lucky, and she is from the small town of Somerville,” Celeste told POPSUGAR. “She’s lived there all her life, but she is wanting more. She’s wanting adventure, excitement, and she wants to get out of her hometown.” The film also stars Finn Wolfhard as Trevor, who is one of Lucky’s friends. “When Lucky meets Trevor, she definitely finds that adventure she’s been looking for, which I love for her.”
Growing up, Celeste used to watch the original Ghostbusters films with their dad, so getting to work on the latest movie was truly a full-circle moment. “I remember being really scared of them, but when I got this part, I watched the films again and they were hilarious. I was like, ‘This isn’t scary. This is a funny movie, right?'” But what made the experience even more special was the bond they formed with the cast. “It felt like a little family on set. I think that’s what I enjoyed the most — how close we all are and how good of friends we all are. Me and Finn became really good friends . . . and it was also just really nice working with the younger kids, too, because they definitely encouraged my imagination and we were always playing around and having fun on set.”
In addition to Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Celeste is also excited to work alongside Florence Pugh, Morgan Freeman, Molly Shannon, and Zoe Lister-Jones in A Good Person and to continue growing their Pedestal production company. Celeste’s ultimate goal with their production company is to “tell Black and brown stories in a really vibrant, colorful way.”
