men’s health: Congratulations for Emily in Paris Season 3! He’s also just opened a new five-star nightclub, The Wealthy Beggar in London.

Lucien Lavizconde: Everything is happening! I feel so blessed right now. Coming to the end of the year, I feel super grateful for everything.

Tell us, what can we expect from Alfie this season?

Alfie in season two had this lingering shadow over what he wanted. He wasn’t happy. And then Emily Cooper comes along and sprinkles unicorn dust for life. In the third season, the walls come down a bit more. We get a more vulnerable side of Alfie: he has his heart in his hand. He is honest, he is true to himself, to his thoughts, to his emotions. For better or worse, he drops his cards. Let’s just say shit hits the fan.

That sounds promising! How would you describe season 3?

I’d say it’s a chaotic chaos of beautiful problems creating more problems. You are in luck. It’s great to see everyone else shine. You get to see the guys in the office a lot more and see what they’re doing. And Kate Walsh, she’s phenomenal.

Out of the cast, who are you closest to?

That is a trick question! I have my ties to everyone. Obviously I’m on set with Lily a lot. She has this caring side to everyone, from the crew to the cast to the people she meets on the street. Her and her husband, Charlie, have taken on this big brother role to me, which is super sweet. And then Samuel (Arnold) is my boy, Ashley (Park) is my girl. Paul (Forman), who you get to know, is also in the mix. Cam (Razat) is the biggest rock star in France. Period.

You always speak highly of Lily’s kindness and how she knows everyone’s name on set.

Ten out of ten points for Lily Collins being Lily Collins.

Your character, Alfie, is extraordinarily confident. Is it something that comes naturally to you, or is it something you get involved in for the character?

I feel like Alfie’s confidence comes from his truth. Everything Alfie says and does is from a good place, you know? I don’t think he has a sarcastic, serpentine bone in his body. He wants the best for Emily.

What would you say is the attribute you bring to the set?

I bring a few jokes here and there. Lily works very hard on that set. During my days there, I do my little bit to feed into that story by playing Alfie. I think I bring a nice little shine here and there. Just to change the mood and bring some fun. I bring a bit of banter to set, put it that way.

Athletics runs in your family. You have said that when you were a child you ate very clean and because of this, you have the dullest taste buds. Is it still true today?

You know what, I’m not going to lie. If I go to Nando’s, I can handle a little taste of life right now. My taste buds have definitely matured. I’m getting better in that department.

For me, it’s eating clean and living well. It really is a lifestyle and it’s not even an option for me. I love, I love, I love to feel good. I believe that everything starts with diet and what you put into your body is what you are going to give at the end of the day. I love waking up feeling healthy and giving myself the best opportunity to do the best job I can and be the best person I can.

Do you indulge in any French food or treat?

I have a real thing for croissants this year. There’s a little bakery across the street with these, they’re not even croissants, they’re spiral pastries with raisins. I don’t know the name of them, but the spiral raisin ones. They are absolutely amazing.

Is it worth breaking the diet?

That’s the thing, it’s not really a diet at all. I really don’t think so. A couple of them in the morning won’t hurt anyone.

“I’m doing things that I want to do for myself now. And everything is going well.”

Do you make up for that with some exercise? Do you have an exercise routine?

The one thing I’ve started doing a lot more, especially this year, is stretching. I love going to the gym and feeling like I’m tearing my muscles left, right and center. It’s the same feeling as when you cut your hair after a long time without having it. It fills you with that confidence. It is something that I will also always have to do for my mental health. Stretching has become a big part of my routine.

Is there any other exercise that you do?

I like martial arts, kickboxing, muay thai. I just started jujitsu, but I dislocated my shoulder, which is not good, but I’ve recovered. But again, even having an injury like that has really made me focus on stretching and working on my ligaments. Being able to train and repair your muscles: the little things you can do for longevity. Getting hurt made me realize that you have to deal with different things. Not everything is hell for leather. It’s much more structured in that sense.

Besides eating right and moving your body, is there anything else you do on set or between takes to take care of yourself?

People think I nap all the time. It’s a little secret, right? On set, there’s going to be a fifteen-minute break, they’ll turn the cameras and say, “Where’s Lucien?” “Lucian? He is in his chair sleeping ”. It’s the moments alone where I can close my eyes and stay still. And not be in the noise. I guess it’s meditative. As part of my character, I am quite energetic. As I get a little older, it’s very important to find the moments of stillness and inner tranquility to deliver at the level I want.

In the new trailer, we see Emily and Alfie talking about work-life balance. What do you do for fun?

I don’t, and I can’t even call it work. I love the idea of ​​storytelling, acting, whatever, and honestly, I love what I do. I read a lot. I play golf. I love my music. I love going out into the field. I want to climb Mount Kilimanjaro next year, hopefully. Just call me Mr. Patagonia, why don’t you? Getting out into nature is what it’s all about.

My father is from Antigua and I managed to move there. It was simply the best decision I have ever made. I live on this small island in the Caribbean that I love. It’s liberating to be able to go out on the rat race and then dive back in.

I think if Covid puts an emphasis on something, that’s another reason not to wait. If you want to do something, go and do it. If you want to live somewhere, go and live there. If you want to work in Paris, go and work there. When I moved to Antigua, I was like, I don’t want to be in Los Angeles. I don’t need to be in New York or London. I want to do something where I need to be and then figure it out from there. That’s where I’m at now.

You have previously said that you are a at the time kind of guy, but now you’re setting these big goals for yourself and it seems like you might be looking at your life differently.

I realized that I had blinders on in my life for so long. My career was very important to me. I didn’t think I would be able to fall in love because I was concentrating on improving myself and improving the future of my family. The only thing that everyone wants for me is for me to be happy and find my happiness. That’s what I’m doing. To be selfless, you have to be selfish. I wouldn’t say I’m selfish because that’s not my nature, but I’m doing things that I want to do for myself right now. And it’s going well.

What do you think is in the cards for Alfie’s happiness?

Emily has opened Alfie’s eyes to realize that he deserves to be happy and that he can find happiness in everything around him. It may be difficult, but he is walking towards a light. Alfie has love in her heart and it will be okay in the end.
