Noah — who has been called ‘the internet’s boyfriend’ since starring in the popular Netflix romcom based on a book by the same name — has been having quite a few months,
After To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before came out, he also starred in another Netflix teen flick, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser.
Previously, he starred in Freeform’s The Fosters and Camila Cabello’s Havana music video.
But his latest project isn’t on a TV network or streaming service — it’s on Instagram, and it’s comprised entirely of photos.
Sarah Bahbah is known for her ‘cinematic’ photo series, which tell stories with stills featuring captions of dialogue.

In the past, she’s mostly shot women for these series, but this time she cast Noah in the leading role.
She posted the first photo from the series on September 19, and the images quickly blew up, attracting attention from Noah’s hardcore fans.
And it’s not just because Noah looks so hunky with his messy hair and hazel eyes. The young actor also happens to be shirtless in the first few images in the series, laying around in a bed half-naked.
And the words are all about love.
‘I dreamt we were in love, then I woke up,’ it begins. ‘Sometimes I think we’re supposed to be lovers.

‘My intuition led me to working with Noah,’ she said. ‘He is incredibly grounded and wise’
The camera zooms out to show his chest and arms, and his body becomes more illuminated from light coming from the window.
As the shot zooms out even more, it’s revealed that he is actually on a couch, and his jeans are hanging low off his waist.
He then puts on more clothes and moves to a bed, though the images are no less swoon-worthy thanks to his moody stare and pouty lips.
Sarah told Teen Vogue that the pair first started communicating over Instagram, making it a fitting place for the series. Sarah followed him, and he sent her a message.
‘My intuition led me to working with Noah. He is incredibly grounded and wise,’ she said. ‘I was drawn to this, so I followed my instinct, and this trust revealed to me a beautiful soul to collaborate with.’
She said that the series itself — which is called Dear Love — is about the ‘complications of all aspects of human connection’.

So far, there are 15 posts in the series, with new shots being released daily.
While Noah was a change in direction for Sarah, this wasn’t actually the first time she had a male star: Earlier this year, Dylan Sprouse appeared in another series.
But Noah’s overnight heartthrob status has made his series an especially huge hit.
In fact, his super-fast superstardom has been tricky to navigate. Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel last week, he recalled being stalked at the airport.
‘I had this one experience — I went to New York for some work, and I was at baggage claim and I had my headphones on and was just waiting for my bag to come out,’ he said.

‘And then I feel a presence approach me…and without even knowing, I had to sidestep and take my headphones out and there’s like four people looking at me. And I was like “Hi,” and they were like “Hey, how was your flight?”
‘And I was like, “‘It was good, how was yours?” And they were like “Oh no no, we didn’t fly, we’re here for you.””
‘They somehow knew I was flying into JFK and the time I was going there. They parked the same place where the driver parked, so they walked us to the car, and then they followed us into the city. And when we got into the city, I was like, there’s totally people following us.
Still, he’s grateful for his success, telling the New York Times, ‘It’s humbling, it’s inspiring, and it’s really motivating. I’ve been working for this for 14-plus years.
