In The Summer I Turned Pretty Star Christopher Briney’s Real Relationship

Christopher Briney is a rising star with a blossoming romance in real life. The ‘Summer I Turned Pretty’ actor portrays Conrad in the popular series, based on a book by author Jenny Han, alongside co-stars Lola Tung and Gavin Casalegno. During a recent People interview, Briney opened up about his earliest exposure to acting as a young college student. “I did a few plays, and teachers said things that pumped my ego and made me think I could actually do it,” Briney said. “I was very, very lucky,” he added while discussing his accomplishments. Briney then mentioned his circle of creative friends when asked how he spends his time off set. “I enjoy … my friends and my life with my friends,” Briney said. “We’re all creative people, so it’s fun to brainstorm and come up with different projects.”

An independent project that Briney has been a part of — along with someone close to him in his personal life — is a 2021 short called Reasons To Be Pretty, in which Briney starred with Isabel Machado. The two portrayed a couple whose relationship is coming to an end as they come face to face and engage in a tense exchange. Although they convincingly performed the roles of partners who fell at odds in the short film, in real life the two share a very different dynamic.
