Fans are swooning over Netflix’s newest heartthrob, Lucas Bravo – who plays Gabriel in Emily In Paris.
Emily In Paris, created by Darren Star, dropped on the streaming platform last week – and the series has garnered very mixed reviews online.
The first season follows Emily (played by Lily Collins), a driven twenty-something American woman from Chicago, who leaves her previous life and boyfriend behind to move to Paris for an unexpected job opportunity.
Emily is tasked with bringing an American point of view to a venerable French marketing firm, and cultures clash as she adjusts to the challenges of life in a foreign city, while juggling her career, new friendships and love life.
As we previously mentioned, the series has received a very mixed reaction on social media.
While many fans lusted over the fashion and stunning locations in the series, others pointed out some major plot holes, and the show’s (sometimes) undeniably cringe dialogue.
However, most fans have united over their collective love for Emily’s love interest Gabriel, played by up-and-coming French actor Lucas Bravo (@lucasnbravo on Insta, you’re welcome).
The 32-year-old has briefly starred in some French TV series, and appeared in a few short films – but Emily in Paris has been dubbed his breakout role.

So now that we’ve binge-watched the first season and are officially invested in the show’s characters, the question on everyone’s mind is – will there be a second season?
The series hasn’t been officially renewed by Netflix just yet, but the show’s creator Darren Star is confident it will be.
Speaking to OprahMag.com, Darren said: “In season 2, she’s going to be more of a part of the fabric of the world she’s living in. She’ll be more of a resident of the city.She’ll have her feet on the ground a little more. She’s making a life there.”
Lily Collins has also admitted she would “love nothing more than to be able to go back to Paris and do [a new season].”
“There were so many situations that we were like, ‘Okay, write that down. That’s going to happen in season two,'” she told Vanity Fair.
“Also, there were many experiences where we were like, ‘Does Emily go abroad? Do you think Emily takes the Eurostar and hops out and goes to Belgium or she goes to London?’ That would be so much fun…I’m like, ‘Darren [Star], there are so many opportunities to just travel internationally when you’re here.'”
Emily In Paris is available to stream on Netflix now.
