Like thousands of others, have you given the series "Emily in Paris" in the last few days? Then you've probably caught your eye too, actor Lucas Bravo! There is definitely more to say about …
Chances are you've also seen this series on Netflix lately: "Emily in Paris" is the streaming provider's new hit and the latest creation from Sex and the City producer Darren Star and iconic costume designer Patricia Field.

In his younger years, he said he devoured every single Sex and the City episode, which is why his friends teased him a lot. But he only replies: "There is so much information in it! You should also educate yourself!"
The cast of "Emily in Paris" is said to have got along just as well as the characters in his favorite series. Bravo now has a deep friendship, especially with Ashley Park, who plays the first friend Emily finds in Paris. But it probably didn't spark on set.
