After watching all of the Francophilic fun of season one, viewers couldn't help but ask: who plays Camille on Emily in Paris

The Netflix series—which follows a young American woman named Emily Cooper who gets the chance to work at her dream job, a marketing firm in Paris, where she gets to meet other incredible characters—was one of the most binged TV series last year. 

One such breakout Emily in Paris character was the fashionable Camille, so of course we wanted to know more about the actress-model who plays her. Here's what we discovered!



Who plays Camille in 'Emily in Paris'?

The character of Camille—who was initially posed to be a threat to good old Emily Cooper's relationship with her neighbor Gabriel, until the two women developed a friendship that withstood Emily's romance with Camille's brother—is played by Camille Razat. 

Razat is a 27-year-old French actress who was born and raised in Toulouse, France and attended the Cours Florent drama school in Paris. (And yes, the actress got to keep her first name for her Emily in Paris character.) 

Razat is also an accomplished model for the French agency, Premium Models, having models for high-fashion brands like Louis Vuitton, Cartier and Balmain, and in the pages of magazines like French Vanity Fair. In summer 2021, she became a L’Oréal Paris spokesperson and global ambassador: "They challenge stereotypes and offer a modern vision of femininity," Razat said of the brand partnership. 

Camille Razat recently shared with French fashion magazine L'OFFICIEL that she had initially wanted to be a war reporter before becoming an actress, and it was only because she challenged herself to do something "a little more fun" before committing to her studies that she became an actress. 

“I took a competition—which I passed—which committed me to five years of study. But first, I challenged myself to do something a little more fun and light, without it being a sabbatical year. I came across a Facebook ad for a theater internship at Cours Florent. It seemed like a fun experience to me and I signed up for it. I do the internship, I go into school, and I love everything I do there. I never went back to my previous project.”

Camille Razat Instagram: does she post?

Camille Razat can easily be found on Instagram under the handle @camillerazat and currently boasts 623,000 followers. In terms of other social media, she has a Twitter but has not been active on the account in the last five years. 

Is Camille Razat close with the 'Emily in Paris' cast?

Off-set, Razat is good friends with her Emily in Paris co-stars, including Lucas Bravo, Ashley Park and the show's heroine, Lily Collins. Of the actresses, Razat tells Glamour: "I love them. They're very outgoing, very funny, a little bit goofy, in the good sense of it. They're very easy to work with....[Lily's] a generous actress, and I think it's a very, very important quality in an actor. Ashley’s the little sunshine of the set. She arrives and she's making jokes, and she's laughing very loud, and it's fun."

In fact, she has such good chemistry with co-star Lily Collins that fans even want to see a romance between their two characters. Would Razat be down? "Definitely," she told Cosmopolitan UK. "It’s so modern, it’s so today. I think it [would] help with representation for people who don’t necessarily have it in this show particularly. I think it’s a great storyline.”
