Lucas Bravo, Lover In Paris: “It Started With Lutetia…”

Her love affair with tens of millions of Emily in Paris addicts begins with a date in the legendary Parisian palace. And continues with this Technikart “love” interview …

October 2020: the rom-com Emily in Paris lands on Netflix. In just a few days, the series becomes number one trend on the platform, and tens of millions of people around the world fall in love with the boy next door at the heart of the series’ sentimental intrigue: the cook Gabriel played by Lucas. Bravo, a 32-year-old Niçois unknown to the battalion. Two months later, we find him at the Serpent à Plume, the underworld (and ultra-chic) ​​club on the Place des Vosges (Paris III e ). Fresh back in the capital after an extended shoot in Budapest (he plays in Mrs. Harris goes to Paris Anthony Fabian facing Isabelle Huppert), he arrives relaxed. Dressed in Weekday jeans, a left bank designer sweater and, on the feet, black Dr. Martens to break (a little) his image of perfect son-in-law. Like the “modern romantic” he now embodies, Lucas will be laid-back, even cerebral, throughout the afternoon spent with him.

At the end of last year, tens of millions of people around the world fell in love with you in just a few weeks. Not too unsettling?
Lucas Bravo: Ah ah! I am not sure of your numbers! But it’s nice, anyway. It is a form of love, virtual and a little distant, but heartwarming.

And how did you first experience the Emily in Paris phenomenon?
I was shooting in Budapest for a feature film (Mrs Harris Goes To Paris by Anthony Fabian, editor’s note ), so I wasn’t too in direct contact with what was going on. The first time I was confronted with the reality of it was in a restaurant: I realized that someone was trying to take a picture of me over their girlfriend’s shoulder. I found out because this person tagged me on my Instagram account, and I got to see myself from their point of view, having lunch. Strange!

You became world famous thanks to this role of handsome cook in a series of Darren Starr, known for his successes camp ( Sex and the city, Younger… ). How did the casting go?
I must have done five or six auditions which were spread over two months. It was a bit “up and down”, I had been good to some and completely next to others. Towards the end, I left Paris so as not to have any waiting, I didn’t want to fall from above. Because all the same, when you’re in contention in this kind of race and you’re in the final peloton, it can be quite devastating on your morale to project yourself too much. So I assumed that it was not going to do it and I went to a sheepfold in the Corsican mountains (since my mother is Corsican and I have family there). I was swimming in the lakes, I was with the wild horses… then I received a phone call telling me to come back to Paris quickly. And there, I had an appointment at Lutetia with Lily ( Collins, the star of the series, editor’s note), the prod ‘, Darren… everyone. And I did one last “alchemy test”. I didn’t know what it was at the time. And two days later, I was called. I was at home when I woke up, I was asked if I was seated properly, then I was told the news. And surprisingly, where a few years ago I would have rushed on my friends to celebrate, I have been very calm. I was quite amazed at the peace that came over me at that time. I got to work straight away, I didn’t call my relatives …

Lucas Bravo Wants to Be More Than a French Fantasy in ‘Emily in Paris’

In a lot of romantic comedies, the men tend to be hunky props. They can be the object of our desire for the leading lady that we root for, but the writing ultimately fails them in the end. Darren Star’s Emily in Paris doesn’t let the men off the hook, and while Lucas Bravo is the ideal French paramour, he gives his character way more nuance than you might expect.

Gabriel is literally the boy next door. Well, he’s the boy upstairs (maybe it’s different in Europe?), and he’s so spirited to be around. You get the impression that he is always flirting with Lily Collins’ Emily, but maybe that’s just how men are in France. If you look deeper, you will see that Bravo has given Gabriel a lot of qualities that make him a more progressive love interest. He respects Emily’s independence and never tries to be the white knight. He’s more of an on-call support system for her.

The difference between American romantic ideals clash sweetly throughout Emily in Paris‘s first season, but Bravo makes Gabriel a modern beau worthy of our ambitious protagonist.

Awards Daily: At one point, Gabriel tells Emily, “You don’t come to Paris to be good.” Do you think Americans—or people in general—romanticize Paris too much?
Lucas Bravo: I think it’s applied to the general idea of traveling abroad. I remember when I moved to LA, I had a sense that I was going to make discoveries and encounters. I think it’s not good in terms of being all over the place and losing my values, but it’s more about allowing yourself to experiment and thinking outside the box. That’s what I think Gabriel means. He also just really wants to kiss her.

AD: I wondered how Emily had any confusion about Gabriel’s feelings. After his first impression of her, is it his intention to be very direct or is that just how Gabriel is with everyone?
LB: Gabriel is a very direct person with everyone. I want him to be that way. When Darren [Star] approached me, it was about literally being the boy next door. Every time I take on a role, I have to start from love and that influences me to how the character acts the way he does. I follow the path from there. I wanted him to be a very modern version of what a man should be, and that means he is very connected with his feminine side and very vulnerable and compassionate. He is kind of lost. In this process, one of his tools growing up was his charm, I think Gabriel does that effortlessly. It’s part of how he communicates. He’s not that confident but he’s been navigating life with this mask of confidence. It goes through that channel of charm.

My high school heartthrob was just crowned one of the sexiest men alive. Ask me how I feel

To the world, Lucas Bravo is one of the stars of Emily in Paris. To me, he’s a blast from the past
Every high school has one. He just happened to be ours.

When Emily in Paris came out in October, it took me a couple of weeks to dive in. I’m French. Do you have any idea how exhausting that is? Whenever French culture gets discussed on the global stage, an abundance of takes ensues, and things get unmanageable faster than you can say “French people don’t actually wear berets”.

With Emily in Paris, some people complained that the show wasn’t realistic – as if Darren Star, its creator, was a storied documentarian instead of the man who gave us Sex and the City and Beverly Hills, 90210. Some Americans cringed at Emily’s behavior, while some French people cringed at the depiction of their country. Some found the series boring, or confusing, or both. The outfits were bad, we were told. Emily in Paris was bad. It was 2020, and things were bad, bad, bad.

I wasn’t going to bother watching the show. Life’s too short! There are old ER episodes waiting to be watched for the 25th time! Then, I happened upon a full cast listing, and everything changed. There, alongside Lily Collins and Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, was a name I hadn’t thought of in years, but recognised instantly: Lucas Bravo.

The name transported me back to a time of heavy backpacks, surprise quizzes, and cafeteria lunches. Secret crushes, playground gossip, dreadful PE classes. To most, Lucas Bravo is the handsome actor who plays Gabriel, Emily’s neighbor and love interest in Paris. To me, he’s my former high school heartthrob. He’s the person everyone within a 10-mile radius had a crush on. The one whose name was universally and tacitly acknowledged as the gold standard for charm.

‘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.

“Emily In Paris” Renewed At Netflix For Season 2

Lily Collins is set for another Parisian adventure after Netflix renewed Darren Star’s Emily in Paris.

The romantic comedy originally was set up at Paramount Network but moved to the streamer over the summer and launched at the start of October, when it moved into Netflix’s Top 10 list, per Nielsen.

The renewal came in the form of a letter from Emily’s fictional boss, Sylvie Grateau (see below).

In Emily In Paris, Emily (Collins), an ambitious twentysomething marketing executive from Chicago, unexpectedly lands her dream job in Paris when her company acquires a French luxury marketing company — and she is tasked with revamping its social media strategy. Emily’s new life in Paris is filled with intoxicating adventures and surprising challenges as she juggles winning over her work colleagues, making friends and navigating new romances.

Ashley Park co-stars in the show, whose series regular cast also includes Philippine Leroy Beaulieu, Lucas Bravo, Samuel Arnold, Camille Razat and Bruno Gouery. Kate Walsh, William Abadie and Arnaud Viard recur.

The half-hour series was created, written and executive produced by Star (Younger, Sex and the City). Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns of Jax Media also exec produce alongside Andrew Fleming. Collins produces. Produced by MTV Studios, the series was filmed on location in Paris and across France.

Collins, speaking at a PaleyFest even said that shooting Emily in Paris was very much “life imitating art” and full of “meta moments” where her real-life experiences in the European city mirrored those of her character.
