Lucien Laviscount is a name we've heard a lot more of since the British actor made his debut as Alfie in the hit Netflix series, Emily in Paris. But where else do we know him from? 

Anyone who grew up in the UK, or who simply enjoys British TV classics, may find that Lucien looks rather familiar. The actor has been in a number of shows over the years, though you could argue his latest role as Emily's love interest is his biggest to date. 

So, before we return to swooning over him in Emily in Paris season 3, here's everything you need to know about the actor, from dating details to previous acting roles. 

Who is Lucien Laviscount?

Lucien is a British actor from Burnley, Lancashire. Born on June 9, 1992, he is now 30 and has been in the biz since he was a child, gaining more prominence in his teens and twenties. 

Is Lucien Laviscount returning to Emily in Paris?

Yes! Lucien will be a series regular in the upcoming Emily In Paris Season 3, which hits Netflix this month on December 21. 

Ahead of joining the show's cast as part of the second series, his character was teased as: "a sarcastic and charming cynic. He refuses to speak French or immerse himself in French culture. He has an antagonist relationship with Emily that evolves into something more."

Lucien Laviscount wife: is he single?

Breathe a sight of relief, Alfie fans, as it looks like Lucien Laviscount is indeed single IRL. He's not married and has not been in a serious relationship recently, though he's been linked to quite a few ladies over the years. 

He reportedly dated Big Brother UK winner Sophie Reade back in 2010, and was rumored to be dating Brooke Vincent in 2013. He was also spotted on multiple dates with Keke Palmer while they were shooting Scream Queens, and was linked to Kelly Osborne in 2019. 

What about Lucien Laviscount and Jesy Nelson?

Lucien Laviscount and Jesy Nelson were spotted together during a night out in London in November 2021, which started rumors that the two could be an item. You might be thinking—two famous people getting together, no drama there, right? 

(Well, Lucien actually went out with Jesy's former bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock, so things could be a bit, ahem, awkward.)

However, things weren't serious between the two at all after all, with a source telling The Sun: “They’re not boyfriend and girlfriend – they just ran into each other on a night out."

How tall is Lucien Laviscount?

Per his IMDb page, Lucien Laviscount stands at 177cm tall, or just under 5ft 10, which is just above the average height for a man in the UK.

Not long after that, Lucien appeared on soap opera Coronation Street where he played swimmer Ben Richardson, who was dating the daughter of Sally Webster who was portrayed by Phoebe Dynevor's real-life mum, Sally Dynevor. Such a small world, we know!
