Everything You Need to Know About the Actors from 'Emily in Paris'

Now back for Season 2, Emily in Paris is one of our latest (and biggest, TBH) Netflix obsessions. The series, from TV genius Darren Star (aka the creator of such television masterpieces as Sex and the City, Younger, Beverly Hills, 90210, and Melrose Place—casual, right?) follows a young American woman named Emily who gets the chance at her dream job in Paris. That dream job? Working for a French marketing firm with the task of bringing an American perspective to the company (which, you know, sure—we’ll just collectively pretend that “an American perspective” is a thing the world doesn’t already have enough of internationally).

The show, like all of Star’s series, is full of quirky characters, quirkier humor, and lust-worthy fashion. But even if you’ve binged the entire first season of Emily in Paris multiple times by now (no shame or judgment if you have) and know everything there is to know about the show’s plotlines and characters, you may still have more to learn to fill out the growing Wikipedia entry in your head about the series. Specifically: The need-to-know details about the Emily in Paris cast, which just so happens to include several talented, real-life Parisians.
