Before he found himself on the small screen, Laviscount, 29, started off modeling as a child for David Beckham's DBO7 line. In 2007, he landed his first acting role on Grange Hill, a British teen drama, and went on to star on several more British TV series, including Coronation Street and Waterloo Road. By 2011, he was ready to try his hand at reality TV, making his way to the final rounds of Celebrity Big Brother.

His first truly big break came with his regular role as ladies' man Earl Grey on Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens in 2015. After sending in his audition tape, Laviscount was informed he didn't get the part — before Murphy personally called later that day to tell him he was writing him into the script, he told Fox 11.

Emily's new Romeo literally took on the role of Mr. Montague himself in 2017's Still Star-Crossed. Since then, he's made his American TV debut on Katy Keene, and scorches as the seductive Irish artist Ansgar in 2021's Trust, opposite Victoria Justice.

Laviscount may play Emily's newest onscreen love interest, but offscreen, the actor has kept his love life out of the public eye since his last relationship with model and designer Ana Tanaka. The pair were photographed at several events together between June 2017 and January 2019.
