Schön! Magazine Interview

It’s October 14 and Lucas Bravo is sitting in a Budapest flat scrolling through Instagram. Since the release of Emily in Paris at the beginning of the month, the latest Netflix series from mega-creator Darren Star, Bravo’s popularity has exploded. He went from around ten thousand Instagram followers to well over a million in just a few days and messages of support have been pouring into his inbox from all over the globe. While he’d love to meet his new fans in person, Bravo is currently quarantined inside his rented Hungarian home until he can return to set for his upcoming film Mrs Harris Goes to Paris — and thus, the endless Insta-scroll continues.

“It’s hard, you know?” Bravo starts with a happy huff. “All your friends tell you, ‘Don’t get sucked into your phone and try not to reply to everybody.’ But I have a lot of time on my hands, and it’s just so flattering, and I feel so grateful.” He chuckles. “I’m just so humbled by all this. I want to be able to give back as much as possible.”

Emily in Paris sees Bravo playing Gabriel, Emily’s (spoiler) chef neighbour-turned-lover. Gabriel is an object of desire from the moment he hits the screen, and over the past weeks, audiences have fallen for his accent and charm right alongside the titular lead. Such a role suits the actor perfectly; a model and former sous-chef with a naturally chipper demeanour, Bravo seems to be as close as one could get to the real-life Gabriel.

While the series is Bravo’s first American production, it’s not his first flirtation with the USA. He’s previously lived in Los Angeles, has attended Burning Man on more than one occasion, and even took a journey to Alaska to visit the abandoned bus once occupied by Chris McCandless, the subject of the book and film Into the Wild.

“I found the bus after three days and lived in it for a little week,” he reveals. “When I saw the movie, I think in 2009, I was in shock… I was already transported by the movie, but when I saw the picture of the real Christopher McCandless, I was so touched by this adventure that I promised myself I would do it one day. It took me ten years, but one winter, I booked my ticket and I just went there.”

The experience of living in the bus sounds miserable — “30 degrees below zero. I couldn’t really sleep,” he remembers — but the mere fact that he went at all speaks to his powerful sense of adventure. Bravo loves to travel, and with Emily in Paris, he hopes he can bring the joy of globetrotting to viewers who have found themselves unable to leave their familiar surroundings due to the present pandemic. “I’ve gotten many messages from people telling me, ‘Now I want to go to Paris.’ And this is the best compliment because that’s really what Darren wanted,” the actor explains. “People tell me about how the show allowed them to travel and feel better. This year has been really hard on everybody, and I’m glad to have these positive stories and cheer up people. It’s a great feeling, and I’m very proud to have it.”
