"People think I nap all the time. It’s a little secret, right? On set, there will be a 15 minute break, they’ll turn the cameras around and will be like, 'Where's Lucien? Lucien? He’s in his chair sleeping.'” It's the moments by myself where I can close my eyes and just be still. And not be in the noise. I guess it is meditative. As part of my character, I’m quite energetic. As I get a little bit older, it's so important to find the moments of stillness and quiet within to deliver on a level that I want to," he told the outlet.

He also talked about how his perspective on life has changed in recent years. 

"I realized that I had blinders on in my life for so long. My career was so important to me. I didn't think I'd be able to fall in love because I was concentrating on bettering myself and bettering the future for my family. The one thing that everyone wants for me is for me to be happy, and to find my happiness. That's what I'm doing. To be selfless, you've gotta be selfish. I wouldn't say that I'm selfish ‘cause that's just not my nature, but I'm doing things that I want to do for me now. And it's going alright," he said. 

Is Lucien Laviscount single?

Good news, ladies. As of right now, it does not appear as if Laviscount is publicly dating anyone.
