    • Actually she is 30 and he is 48 so he is old enough to be her father.

  • Wasn’t he the same actor who’s seduces Diane Lane’s character in the movie Unfaithful?

  • He’s too young for this! I’m sure someone else will imdb him and find that he’s mathematically old enough, but he doesn’t look it! I was expecting her father to be much older.

    • Oh, come on he’s French! It’s normal for them to have kids with 16 (kind of).

      • French women have their 1rst child around 28.That is so far from your “kind of 16″ Maria…but maybe you should stop watching american teen moms and read newspapers instead..,just saying!

  • He is not of looks age wise to play her father, its gross miscasting! I also hate what he did to Halle’s ex!

    • Agreed. Can’t stand him.

  • He does look too young for the role but he’s 48 and Karine Vanasse is 30 so it could work if Pascal knocked Margaux’s mother up when he was pretty young. I also like they he looks really different to Conrad, I was expecting them to go down the ‘distinguished older gentleman’ route but I get the impression that Pascal is a bit of a shark and a smooth operator, someone that Conrad may actually feel threatened by.

  • Great casting! I hope they will speak french for their scenes together. Otherwise it will be weird if they talk english when they’re alone.

  • *yawn*. She’ll still be boring

    • yeah .. i was expecting Margaux to be a more pivotal character like Fauxmanda or Lydia atleast.. but she seems to be an unnecessary attachment with Jack, much like Declan in first two seasons.

  • geez, how many of Conrads ex business partners/Victoria’s lovers are they going to trump out before they just wrap up this story. Who was the last one.. Dylan Walsh? and of course David Clark. I suppose since this show isn’t focusing on revenge anymore they have a lot of story to make up. ugh.

  • Yes, he looks young to be her dad but you are all forgetting that this is television and they have makeup artists and hair people to make every actor look the age they want them to. Relax. I’m sure the cast director knows what they’re doing. It’s funny how people on these comments always think they know better than the professionals.

  • This may not be a recent picture either. He may currently look older than that.

  • Olivier is unbearably hot.
