Lucas Bravo plays Gabriel in “Emily In Paris”
In Netflix Emily in Paris, Bravo hires Gabriel, a Parisian chef interested in the recent import of Emily Cooper (Lily Collins). In an interview with Manny the Movie Guy, the actor talked about what drew him to the role.
“I just auditioned,” he explained. “And just working with (director) Darren Star to begin with, [he’s] such an icon. Being able to have this American perspective while working in my hometown. And just Lily Collins, Patricia Fields and all those icons that would take me one step closer to what this industry is for me. “
The actor noted that the chemistry between the cast that the audience sees on screen was genuine. He said that most of the time the actors ended up having fun on set.
“At the end of the day it’s all about having fun, and that was exactly what it was,” said Bravo. “I came on set and we had all such chemistry that it made this experience exactly what I expected when I started.”
How do you feel about your role in “Emily In Paris”?
When it comes to Emily in Paris, Bravo revealed how layered his character, Gabriel, actually is.
“I think he’s going through the moment in his life where he’s kind of lost,” she told Manny the Movie Guy. “He wants to do it alone. He doesn’t want any help and, at the same time, he has responsibilities and feels a little emasculated by Camille. “
He also revealed that he bears a significant resemblance to his character. Bravo knows his way around the kitchen and has cooked some of the things Gabriel does on screen.
“A few years ago I was a sous chef in a restaurant,” noted the actor. “So when I got the script for the first time I thought, ‘Oh, wow, this is definitely for me, I’m definitely going to use those skills.’ And so they made me cook the omelets I made for Emily on the show. “
Finally, when addressing the criticism the series is receiving for its portrayal of French culture, Bravo suggested it was pretty accurate. He noted that the creator of the show, Darren Star, had lived in France for years and knew its language and daily life.
“That’s true, you know,” Bravo explained. “Darren experienced it because he lived in Paris and speaks French. And so it’s not just a hypothesis from the American point of view. It’s from someone who really lived it. So I really like the fact that he found all those little spots that [sometimes even we] I don’t see why we’re in it. “
Emily in Paris debuts on Netflix on October 2nd.
