23-year-old British actor and singer, Lucien Laviscount is about to build himself a new fan base, due to his upcoming starring role in the upcoming new horror-comedy show, Scream Queens. Lucien is featured in the latest issue of Details magazine, where he speaks about his toned physique and how working out is a family activity. Take a look at some of the things he had to say below:
On how he got into fitness: “My introduction to fitness started early because my mom and dad are ex-bodybuilders—they won Mr. and Miss Universe [in the mid-eighties and nineties].
My parents have a gym back in the U.K., and it was always the last place my brothers and I wanted to be—sitting in the back of my mom’s ‘Tums and Bums’ class after school. But around 17 or 18, I wanted to look more like a man. That’s when I started training.” On his eating habits: “Growing up, there was no salt in our house, and the only condiment was ketchup. We always ate very clean: chicken and rice or pasta and tuna. I have the most boring taste buds because of that. Rich food doesn’t do it for me. Eating is definitely more of a chore for me.”
On his workout regimen: “I work out at least five times a week, but never for longer than an hour. After that, your concentration goes. The last thing you want is to remember being bored in the gym. I hate myself when I’m not training, though. The worst thing you can hear is, ‘You look like you’ve lost weight.’ That’s a kick in the nuts.”
Catch Lucien on Scream Queens beginning tonight at 8 EST/7 CST, where he plays Earl Gray, a member of the Dollar Scholars, a golfing fraternity and the most popular boys of Wallace University.
