The 31-year-old actor, who holds British nationality and has Greek roots on his father’s side, as well as two siblings, Jules and Louis, started his acting career at the age of ten in Clocking Off. He made his way to the big screen in 2014 with One Night in Istanbul, directed by James Marquand. However, his big break came when he joined the cast of the second season of Emily in Paris as Alfie, the boyfriend of the main character portrayed by Lilly Collins.

On the sets of the series, Laviscount and Collins have become good friends, even off-camera. In an interview with InStyle magazine, Laviscount praised Collins, saying, “She’s so giving as an actress and just as a human as well. She can really focus on what’s in front of her when she’s doing it and give a hundred percent. It is quite amazing to see how she snaps between all these different roles within her life and it’s so seamless.”

Lucien Laviscount’s role in the series really propelled him to fame, earning him a strong following of fans. In fact, there’s even talk about him possibly becoming the next James Bond after Daniel Craig.

Beyond Acting

Lucien seems to have a diverse set of interests. If you take a look at his Instagram, you’ll see he’s quite into fashion. He’s collaborated with big names like Dolce&Gabbana and Charlotte Tilbury, and he’s often spotted at fashion events or gracing the covers of major magazines like L’Officiel and Fashion Canada.

The British actor is also a big sports fan. In fact, in an interview with Men’s Health, he admitted, “I do love getting to the gym and feeling like I’m tearing my muscles left, right, and center. It’s the same feeling as when you get a haircut after not having one for a long time. It fills you with that confidence. It’s something that I’ll always need to do for my mental health as well. Stretching has become a big part of my routine.”

Moreover, Lucien enjoys watching sports live, especially Formula 1. On May 30, 2023, he witnessed Max Verstappen’s win and saw Carlos Sainz and his fellow Brit, Lando Norris, on the podium at the Monaco Grand Prix. Additionally, in January of that year, he got to experience the thrill of wearing racing gear and driving an F1 car firsthand.

‘Man of the Year’ by GQ

On December 4, 2023, Lucien Laviscount was awarded the title of ‘Most Stylish Man of the Year’ by the prestigious magazine GQ. This recognition came for his exceptional fashion sense and his ability to redefine men’s style standards with every appearance on the Red Carpet. “I believe that embracing vulnerability adds a unique beauty, and I aim to express this in my style,” stated the actor in his interview with GQ.
