Emily in Paris becomes Collins in Copenhagen

Emily in Paris becomes Collins in Copenhagen

Lily Collins, the star of the Netflix hit series ‘Emily in Paris’, has bought a property in Copenhagen.

Located on Eckersbergsgade on Østerbro, which can be found in the wealthy Kartoffelräckerne quarter, it is barely 100 meters from the largest of Copenhagen’s lakes.

It is believed that the daughter of Phil Collins and her husband, film director Charlie McDowell – son of Hollywood couple Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen – have paid 15.5 million kroner for the 135 sq m, five-bedroom English-style townhouse.

The previous owner was film director Pernille Fischer Christensen, known for the films ‘En Soap’ and ‘To become Astrid‘, and her husband, author Kim Fupz Aakeson, who is best known for his series of children’s books featuring the character Vitello.

Honeymooned here and loved it
It is well documented on social media, and in a Vogue Scandinavia article in January, how Collins and her husband are huge Danophiles – a love that has blossomed since they married in 2021 and honeymooned in Denmark, spending most of their time in Rørvig, a town at the tip of northwestern Zealand.

In addition, the couple are equal owners of Case Study Copenhagen, a company established in 2022, which will operate within media production, real estate and residential rental.

Much has been made of how the latest development mirrors the plot line of ‘Emily in Paris’, where a young American woman falls in love in the French capital, but with more of a ‘Collins in Copenhagen’ twang.

Among her Danish passions is her love of cycling – she and her husband cheered on Jonas Vingegaard in last year’s Tour de France while dressed in red and white – and she even has a travel card.

Additionally, a recent report in Glamor magazine reveals how she is obsessed with interior design.

Making a breakthrough in Nyhavn

Polished pastry raising and pronunciation
Viewers were certainly quite charmed by her performance in a video accompanying the Scandinavian Vogue article, where she wildly tried to pronounce several Danish tongue twisters and quickly mastered the number system.

She was mainly filmed during a visit to Bageriet Juno in Østerbro, and she was taught by chef Emil Glaser the best way to both prove and pronounce her Danish.

The video also showed her hanging around the Lakes, visiting Tivoli and going to Nyhavn.

Her house purchase certainly increases the odds of Emily in Paris coming to Copenhagen in a future episode.
