Meet Your New TV Boo: Lucien Laviscount
Well, that's one reason to watch @ScreamQueensFOX.
If you're a fan of sororities, celeb guest stars, and campy horror, then Scream Queens might be your new favorite TV show. The horror-comedy series follows an elite sorority that's being terrorized by a masked killer known only as the Red Devil, and boasts such recognizable leads as Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Nick Jonas. And sure, Nick may be turning plenty of heads with his return to the screen yesterday, but don't sleep on series regular Lucien Laviscount. Here are 7 things to know about Lucien, your future #ManCrushMonday.
1. He's British and Trinidadian
Lucien grew up in Lancashire, in north west England. His parents are also both Trinidadian. (Another famous Trinidadian? The one and only Nicki Minaj.)
2. His parents are health nuts.
Both of Lucien's parents were bodybuilders - they were even Mr. and Miss Universe back in the day. They also own their own gym. As a result, he grew up in a super healthy household, where salt wasn't allowed and clean eating was the norm.
3. He used to do ballet.
Thanks to his upbringing, Lucien was encouraged to be healthy and active - he even did ballet up until he was a preteen. He talks more about his upbringing in this recently published feature with Details magazine.
4. He started off as a model.
Lucien got his first big break at the age of 10, when he landed a modeling gig with British department store, Marks and Spencer. He then went on to land roles both big and small on British television.
5. He's done reality TV.
In 2011, Lucien was a cast member on the UK's Celebrity Big Brother. He lasted until the end of the show, when he finished fifth.
6. He almost had his own show on The CW.
Last year, Lucien guest-starred on an episode of The CW's Supernatural, which turned out to be a backdoor pilot. His character would have been the main protagonist of the suggested spin-off, Supernatural: Bloodlines, but the pilot was never picked up.
7. He's a recording artist.
