Meet Your Next Internet Boyfriend, Emily in Paris’ Lucien Laviscount

He’s Always Been a Charmer

“How I got into acting was a little bit bizarre,” Laviscount told Harry Connick Jr. on his Harry talk show in 2017. “I was shopping with my mom in town and there was this beautiful shop attendant. She was probably about 18 and I was about 10. I’m like, ‘Mom, she’s gorgeous,’ and my mom’s always like, ‘Go and get it son.’ I went over there, brash and bold, and said, ‘Are we getting out of here or what, because I don’t know about you but I think Lion King is showing down the road?'” 

He continued, “This woman overheard and she goes to my mom, ‘Listen, he’s got heart. I’m casting for this new kids’ clothing brand. He’d be great, you should bring him for an audition. And I got the job.”

Turns out, the clothing launch was for David Beckham‘s kids’ line, DB 07 clothing range!
