You love to hate it! Emily in Paris is back. Season 3 of the popular yet slightly polarizing Netflix series dropped on Dec. 21, and the drama did not disappoint. The love triangle between Emily (Lily Collins), Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), and Camille (Camille Razat) reared its ugly head once more, ultimately affecting a fourth main character: Alfie.
Played by British actor Lucien Laviscount, Alfie first appeared in Emily in Paris Season 2, where he and Emily found themselves in the classic enemies-to-lovers entanglement.
