Who is Lucien Laviscount?

Lucien, 29, is an actor from Burnley, England. He rose to fame in 2007 after appearing in BBC's Grange Hill, and he later had roles in ITV's Coronation Street (2009), and BBC's Waterloo Road (2010-11).

It was announced earlier this year that he had joined the cast of Emily in Paris, playing new character Alfie.

Speaking to Heart ahead of the release of season two, he opened up about his incredible experience of filming in Paris.

He said: "It was my first time in Paris, I’d never been to Paris before. It was summer time, it was my birthday week, and every one of the cast came out and made me feel so welcome. Paris is like a museum with the roof taken off, it really is a beautiful place, and I was so fortunate to be there and working. It was magical from the beginning to end."
