Bravo also told Glamour he thinks Gabriel loves Camille very much, “but he also shares a lot of [passion] with Emily.” “There’s sexual chemistry, yes, but there’s more to it than that,” he said. “I think he’s still in the process of understanding what’s going on, so we will have to wait for Darren to decide.”
But it won’t be just our old favorites returning! Lots of faces were added to the cast on Monday, May 24, when a press release announced a slew of new characters. Most exciting is Jeremy O. Harris, writer of the upcoming Zola movie, as Gregory Elliott Dupree, “an iconic fashion designer and former protégé of Pierre Cadault…. Pierre and Gregory were close, until Gregory’s unexpected and dramatic exit from the atelier left them bitter rivals.”
Another flashy role goes to Arnaud Binard as Laurent G, “charming and gregarious owner of a popular Saint Tropez nightclub…. Emily meets Laurent when he agrees to promote one of her brands, but soon learns that his connection to Savoir is more complicated than marketing.” And has Emily finally met her match? Lucien Laviscount (Scream Queens) will play 30-year-old London boy Alfie, who “refuses to speak French or immerse himself in French culture.” He works for a U.K. bank but prefers to party. Sounds like a perfect foil for a certain young marketing savant we know.
Thankfully, August 4 was the final day of filming season two, which means we are getting closer and closer to finding out the fates of our favorite expat. “Last day on set and I can’t imagine wrapping on a more perfect note with my @emilyinparis partner in crime,” Collins wrote on Instagram, alongside a picture with Park. “I’m not crying, you’re crying!…”
Until season two drops, you’ll find us rewatching season one, buying Emily’s phone case (which actually belonged to costume designer Patricia Field), and brushing up on our French. We’ll update this post as more information becomes available.
