When Lucien Laviscount auditioned for Ryan Murphy‘s Scream Queens (which premieres tonight, btw), he had a different sort of casting couch experience in mind than what took place.
“In the Scream Queens audition scene I did for Ryan, my character was getting dressed, so I hit the gym beforehand,” the British actor recently told Details. “I asked him if he wanted me to take my shirt off; he said no. I was like, ‘Cool, cool’ . . . but I was ready to go!”
