If you're curious about the young woman who plays "Camille" in Emily in Paris, you're in luck! Camille Razat is a French actress who has become one of the breakout stars of the hit Netflix show. Learn more about her here!

Emily in Paris has become a global sensation for many reasons, including its designer fashion and cast of eclectic characters! The new Netflix show— which was recently renewed for a second season— follows the Parisian misadventures of Chicago native "Emily Cooper," played by Lily Collins.

In the series, "Emily" ends up befriending a young French woman named "Camille," who's played by Camille Razat— an actress who was relatively unknown before starring in Emily in Paris!

Razat sharing a name with her character was by chance

Born in Toulouse, France, 26-year-old Camille Razat has broken onto the American scene in a big way with her role as "Camille"! And while she shares a name with her character, this commonality happened to be complete coincidence— or was it fate? "When I read the script the first time... First she's named like me, so it was like a big sign for me really," Razat told Entertainment Tonight. "And I think I'm pretty much Camille in real life."

While she's only been acting for several years, Razat can be seen in several projects, including the French miniseries Disparue and the 2018 film The 15:17 to Paris. She's also appeared in many French short films— including Caprice, which she starred in with her Emily in Paris co-star Lucas Bravo! And as it turns out, acting isn't the only industry in which Razat has showcased her talents...

Emily in Paris: "Camille" is also a model in real life

Razat has captivated viewers with her beauty as "Camille," so it's not surprising to learn that she's a model as well as an actress! Employed by the French agency Premium Models, she often posts photos from her professional shoots to Instagram. With over 504k followers on the social media platform, Razat enjoys showing off the variety of gorgeous looks she's photographed in, along with the behind-the-scenes process of getting glammed up!

A close look at her Instagram shows that her captions are often very simple— usually a word or two followed by an emoji. Also, many of the photos Razat shares of herself are credited to a man named Etienne Baret, whose Instagram profile reveals he's an actor as well as a photographer. It's not known if Razat and Baret are just friends or something more since the French actress and model has been private about her relationship status, but they seem to spend a lot of time together!
