When Lucien Laviscount of Waterloo Road joins Emily In Paris, he appears to be an entirely different person.
Lucien Laviscount, a Waterloo Road heartthrob and Coronation Street star, has joined the cast of Netflix’s Emily In Paris as Lily Collins’ lead character’s love interest.
From Weatherfield to Paris is a long way, but gorgeous actor Lucien Laviscount has made the journey.
In Netflix’s Emily in Paris, the former Coronation Street star will play the love interest for Lily Collins’ character.
Lucien, 29, was born in the Ribble Valley of Lancashire and rose through the ranks of popular British shows, landing his first role in 2007 as Jake Briggs in the BBC’s much-missed Grange Hill.
In 2009, he appeared on Corrie as Sophie Webster’s lover Ben Richardson.
He then returned to the BBC to play Jonah Kirby, the love-struck schoolboy from Waterloo Road.
Emily in Paris was a huge smash for Netflix last year, and the second season has been cleverly arranged to arrive just in time for Christmas – December 22 to be exact.
Lucien now has a totally different appearance than when he was on British television. On Instagram, the diligent gym goer proudly displays the rewards of his hard work by posting shirtless selfies.
The muscly actor has a six-pack and stubble on his face.
Lucien’s shirtless Instagram image in February received good feedback from his renowned friends.
Example, a musician, wrote: “Damn you, bro. I had no idea I was feeling this way.” James Haskell, a rugby player, authored “Dreamboat.”
“Haaa.. tell people you go to the gym without telling people you go to the gym,” Aston Merrygold of JLS stated.
Meanwhile, the new Emily in Paris teaser shows Emily (Lily Collins) talking about her complicated life while yet looking effortlessly stylish. Lucien appears in the trailer multiple times, and despite the fact that he does not talk, his character appears to be quite close to Emily.
Lucien’s character was part of a teen quad alongside Sophiw Webster (Brooke Vincent), Sian Powers (Sacha Parkinson), and Ryan Connor on the soap opera Corrie (then played by Ben Thompson).
Coming on to Ryan’s mother, Michelle, was one of his plots (Kym Marsh).
His character Jonah in Waterloo Road has a fascination for older women as well. Miss Montoya (Karen Shenaz David) was his instructor this time, and the two had an extremely inappropriate romance before fleeing to marry.
In 2011, Lucien appeared in the Celebrity Big Brother final alongside Kerry Katona, Jedward, and Amy Childs.
The aspirant actor then relocated to Los Angeles, where he appeared in shows such as Scream Queens, Snatch, and Katy Keene.
