Daniel and Eva were avid travellers and often brought their son along. This habit remained with Lucas into adulthood:
I journey every two years. My parents travelled a lot, and I had to rediscover myself in each city and country I visited.
Lucas attended Lycée Pasteur, located in the commune of Neuilly-sur-Seine, not far from the Champs-Élysées. At the age of 19, he enrolled in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles, which he graduated from in 2010.

Acting Career

Lucas's first roles were in French cinema. His debut was in the series by directors Philippe Dajoux and Emmanuel Duberge "Life is Beautiful", which told the story of ordinary people in Marseille.

Then came the role of Jeff in the drama "Sous le soleil de Saint-Tropez" with Adeline Blondieau and Geraldine Adams in the lead roles. In 2014, he played Antonio in the film "La crème de la crème" directed by Kim Chapiron.

The actor's interests were not limited to cinema: in 2017, Lucas starred in a commercial for Chanel. Later, in 2020, he admitted that the world of fashion is also not alien to him:
I love fashion. I'm a caveman, so I'm not too engrossed in fashion events and the like, but I like this opportunity to reinvent myself every time. I get bored easily with what I wear, so I keep reinventing my style. I can be casual, I can be a hippie, I can be cool.»
In 2020, the first part of the popular American series "Emily in Paris" was released, written by Darren Star. In this picture, Lucas perfectly fit into the image of Emily Cooper's beloved, Gabriel - one of the main characters of the film. After this role, Bravo instantly became a new sex symbol.

Despite the fact that critics in France spoke negatively about the series due to the abundance of stereotypes and clichés about Paris, many viewers perceived it as a chance to relax a little and laugh during another lockdown. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Lucas explained what he thinks about this:
One life would not be enough to know everything that happens in Paris. It's a whole world in a city. At some point, you have to choose a perspective. French critics, they did not understand the fact that this is just one vision. They say: «Oh, this is not what Paris is». Of course. Paris is a lot.
Lucas believes that against the background of the negativity that the world is experiencing right now, such a colorful and carefree show, which has romance, fashion, and travel, is simply necessary.

In an interview with "Bazaar", the actor admitted that he has always liked the name Gabriel and dreamed of giving this name to his son or daughter. So when he learned that this is the name of the hero he is about to play, he saw it as a good sign.

The actor with the model appearance fit so well into the image of the handsome chef, which his experience working as a sous-chef in reality helped him cope with, that after the film was released, he started worrying that due to his attractive appearance he might never play a characterful and deep character. He stated this while talking to "The Times" journalists.

It came as a surprise to him when a week after the series was shown, the number of his followers on Instagram increased from 12 thousand to half a million, and by the beginning of 2022, their number was already 1.7 million people. Before the release of "Emily in Paris", Instagram for the actor was more of a way to communicate with friends rather than a means of promotion and popularity. In an interview with "Harper’s Bazaar" he said about this:
Now everything is different. I have a lot of messages. I don't know if I can keep up with the times. So it's a bit overwhelming. But I like the attention. It's always nice to feel recognized and loved, and I try to navigate this as best I can. My Instagram wasn't this crazy before.
In 2020, in addition to the hit series, Bravo starred in two more French short films, "Relation Libre" and "Arrogance Bikini".
