Ava Capri Interview: Love, Victor Season 3

Ava Capri Interview: Love, Victor Season 3 #Ava #Capri #Interview #Love #Victor #Season Welcome to Lopoid

Love, Victor star Ava Capri shares what the show has meant to her and how she views Lucy’s journey in its final season, which is currently streaming.

Love, Victor may have officially ended now that its third and final season is available to stream on Hulu, but its legacy of self-love and freedom of expression lives on in its vocal fanbase and rewarding character arcs for its ensemble cast. Based on the 2018 romcom Love, Simon, the series follows Victor Salazar (Michael Cimino, Senior Year) as he slowly comes out and finds both friendship and love – something that’s helped many LGBTQ audiences feel seen along the way.

While the second season ended on a dramatic cliffhanger of Victor having to choose between his love interests, that’s far from the only storyline that’s the talk of the town in Love, Victor season 3. Even characters who previously didn’t have as much screen time, like last year’s addition Lucy (played by Ava Capri) got a chance to shine and even form part of an iconic romance as season 3 premieres.

Screen Rant: I cannot believe that we are at the final season of Love, Victor. What has this journey been like for you, and how significant has it been for you to be part of a story that is so important to so many teens?

Ava Capri: It’s meant so much to me. I joined on the second season, and I was a fan of the first season. Then getting to come on the show that has this amazing, hopeful energy in the way it portrays queerness? It’s real and takes on real stories, but it also has this amazing joyfulness to it, and I was so excited to be a part of the cast.

I wasn’t explicitly told that my character would eventually have a queer arc when I booked the role, and when that was later revealed to me, I was just so excited. I’m really honored to get to be a part of that.

Speaking of that arc, what can you tell us about the dynamic between Lake and Lucy this season?

Ava Capri: We leave off season 2 with this unexpected moment of connection between the girls, and I think that the audience response to that one little moment of our chemistry has been huge. It’s been so amazing, because I’m like, “Will they even get it? Is this too ambiguous?” But I feel like everyone got it right away, [which is] a testament to Bebe and I, and our own connection with each other.

We basically start off that same night, and we get this really beautiful, organic inside picture of what happens next; what they do from that night and having that connection between them. And then it kind of leads into a beautiful story. I’m excited for people to see it.

What’s so great about Love, Victor is how engaged fans are. Do you have any other moments of experiencing fandom at large that were either overwhelming or memorable for you?

Ava Capri: Nothing overwhelming, but I’ve been a few places, and it’s funny because Lucy’s – compared to the third season – a smaller arc in the second season. But I still have had people be like, “Are you Lucy?” and stuff, and I love it.

Gay people are my favorite people. I love all people, but I specifically just love them. A lot of the time, it’s honestly so many gay men in West Hollywood that will notice. And I’m like, “Yes, that’s exactly who I want to be talking to.” I love that I’m on a show that you love so much.

And I’m so excited for all the queer girls who finally get to have a storyline that they can see themselves reflected in this season. I think it’s really exciting.

Love, Victor is a Ferris wheel ride of emotions. How would you describe Lucy’s arc and the emotions that progress this season?

Ava Capri: Ferris wheel of emotions – I’m obsessed with that.

Basically, Lucy’s arc starts back to dating Andrew, and then her realizing, “Is this something that is working for me? Is this something that I actually want? Do I actually want this?” And then to having that unexpected moment between her and Lake.

I think it’s really cool, in that we get to see both Lake and Lucy go on this journey of discovery together at the same time. I think that’s a really beautiful story that gets to be told, and I just think it’s really cool. Lucy does her own thing, and is a follows-her-heart kind of girl, and she’s totally someone I think is cool.
