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.
