Lucas Bravo: What you don't know about me
When you meet Lucas Bravo, you half expect to see him with frying pan in hand, offering to make you eggs. His role as chef Gabriel, in Netflix's Emily in Paris, has made him a household name (with pin-up status) but it is, interestingly enough, not the career move that he considers life-changing. Instead, it's when he "read the script for Mrs Harris Goes to Paris," he says, without pausing to think. Released this autumn, it is the film adaptation of the cult 1958 novel by Paul Gallico, starring Leslie Manville. He plays André Fauvel, an accountant at Dior who befriends the titular character when she embarks upon a couture-inspired trip to Paris. But, before it's release, we are also here to discuss his latest film role, in the charming rom-com Ticket to Paradise, starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts. It's a witty but feel-good exploration of old love, new love and – in the case of Bravo's brilliantly executed hapless romantic pilot Paul – doomed love. "He is a 30-something-year-old with a 15-year-old's state of mind," he grins, of a character who allows Bravo to show off his impressive comedic chops. "He's very naive, very innocent. He operates out of love and just wants to get that ultimate validation from the woman he loves."
