Born and raised in London, Alfie is described as "a sarcastic and charming cynic" who refuses to speak French or immerse himself in the culture.

"He enjoys teasing Emily; they have an antagonist relationship that evolves into something more. Alfie is in Paris working for a UK bank, but unlike Emily he works to live, not lives to work. He'd prefer to be playing football or having a pint with the lads in an English-speaking pub."

In addition to Laviscount, Arnaud Binot from Modern Family and Slave Play's Jeremy O Harris are set to guest star in the sophomore season.

Back in October, Emily in Paris boss Darren Star hinted at the possible storylines the characters will be faced with.

"What happens in the next chapter, I think, can be a real exploration of how does the relationship between these three characters [Emily, Cami and Gabriel] evolve.

"That, to me, is such a fun thing to explore in season 2, because these are not Americans. They're French people. To me, a big part of the show is looking at everything through a different lens. Season 2 will open up some interesting and surprising relationship avenues."

Emily in Paris season 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
