‘Emily in Paris’ Star Lucas Bravo Praises Lily Collins

He soared to fame for his role as handsome chef Gabriel in the hit Netflix series.

And Emily In Paris star Lucas Bravo has praised his co-star Lily Collins for being a ‘great’ and ‘generous’ scene partner.

In a new candid interview, the French heartthrob, 32, went shirtless as he smouldered in an accompanying photoshoot with Man About Town.

lsewhere during the chat, Lucas admitted that he had ‘imposter syndrome’ when he first started filming and he only jumped into production one week before filming.

The star was interviewed by Emily In Paris co-star Ashley Park, who plays Emily’s (Lily Collins) best friend, Mindy Chen, in the fun Netflix series.

Talking about working with Lily, who plays his character Gabriel’s love interest and leading role Emily, Lucas said she was ‘generous’ while Ashley said she was ‘great’.

He explained the important characteristics of a scene partner: ‘First of all, it’s all about listening. No matter how much you’ve been working your character, if you come to set and you’re not ready to listen, it’s meaningless.’

Lucas added: ‘The information comes to you, the emotions come to you and it becomes organic. You just have to live it, because you’re an instrument.

‘Lily was so generous on that level; she leaves so much space for you to exist and to do what you need to do.’

Lucas also said that shooting the final scenes of season one were emotional as he had to say goodbye to Lily.

He said: ‘I think the last scene we did was a great example on a dramatic level, because Emily is meant to leave and he doesn’t know that he’s saying goodbye to Emily.

‘It was my last scene on season one, so I used that emotion to say goodbye to Lily. It was the end, so it was so similar to Gabriel’s experience and I was pretty surprised how painful it became.

‘It’s the kind of scene where, when they say “cut”, you come back to yourself and are like “Woah, what are we doing?” I just completely disconnected and threw myself into the thing.

‘With Lily, she came and hugged me and complimented me about the entire season, and it was such an emotional day. You [Ashley] were meant to be there, but you were late because you went wine tasting…’

Lucas also said that the show came when everyone in the cast were at ‘different places’ and ‘turning points’ in their lives, with everyone growing by the end.

He said: ‘This entire journey came at a time in our lives where we were all at different places and we were all at turning points in our lives. We all brought different energy into this production and grew together, and we all came out of it as better [people].’

He added: ‘It took the entire season to, actually… There were different chapters. Chapter one was like “Hey, what am I doing here? I don’t know what I’m doing, but I’m doing it”. Imposter syndrome.

‘Chapter two was like “OK, getting confidence, let’s do this! This is great, we’re all friends”. Chapter three was “It’s not a game, we should be serious about this, don’t be to confident”.

‘And chapter four was like living an entire life — like born, teenager, adult life, and at the end you’re like “OK, I’m more mature now and am ready for what’s next”.’

Talking about his role in the series, Lucas said that he felt connected to Gabriel as they are both ‘modern men’ and ‘pretty much connected to our feminine side and sensitivity’.

Revealing how he approached the character, he continued: ‘I guess pretty much everything was different, because as you know, I jumped into production a week before we started.

‘Since I only had two episodes, they were writing as they were getting to know us… I guess I gave him all of my anxieties and my wounds and it was kind of therapeutic, you know?

‘I didn’t want to just be the boy next door, because he literally is the boy next door. I wanted him to show something else, some nuances, and wanted to show that behind the wall of the flirtatious confidence, he was just a lost French boy.’

Ending his interview, Lucas said that he wanted his new fans to know that he likes to treat people the way he likes to be treated.

He added: ‘I’m compassionate and loving and always try to find the best in everybody. You know, this is something we miss these days — a little compassion.’

For the interview and photoshoot, Lucas smouldered in a collection of stylish ensembles amongst the picturesque cityscape of Paris.

In one brooding snap, the actor went shirtless as he wore a gold chain and a pair of loose-fitting black trousers.
