British actor Lucien Laviscount has arrived to shake things up on Emily in Paris season two.
The 29-year-old plays Alfie, a cocky, charming Londoner who’s moved to Paris for work. Coincidentally, he’s in the same French class as Emily (Lily Collins)—and their relationship starts off contentious before morphing into full-on flirting.
But what does that mean for Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), the hot chef Emily was hooking up with in season one—despite the fact he’s her new friend Camille’s (Camille Razat) boyfriend? Drama! That’s what it means: drama!
Offscreen, though, Laviscount is drama-free; the arrogance he exudes as Alfie is swapped for warmth and playfulness. Simply put, he’s a delight—and he was totally game to sit down for Glamour‘s Inappropriate Questions, for which I asked him all the things best suited for a second (or third) date. Read on, and stream Emily in Paris season two on Netflix now.
Glamour: What is one dating or relationship rule you think is total B.S.?
Lucien Laviscount: “Come correct.” Don’t come correct! Be the worst version of yourself—that’s what I’m saying. Be the nasty, ugly version because, at the end of the day, that’s all everyone’s going to see later down the line.
Fill in the blank. I love when my partner _____.
Oh, that’s inappropriate!
It can be P.G., if you want!
I love when my partner laughs.
Is laughter one of the biggest things you’re looking for in a potential person? A sense of humor?
No, it’s just something that always happens when I’m trying to be cool and sexy. They just laugh at me. So I’ve got to try and go with it. I’ve got to make it the new thing. I’ve got to get them laughing at me.
