Lupin: Omar Sy stars in dramatic teaser for Netflix series

Omar Sy portrays Assane Diop in the crime drama Lupin, following a man inspired by the stories of Arsène Lupin, a world famous gentleman thief. The first five episodes of the Netflix show came out on Friday, January 8, and subscribers are excited for more. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before the second half of series one drops.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Lupin.

When Assane was a teenager, his father died after he was accused of a crime he didn’t commit.

The series is set 25 years on when Assane is desperate to avenge his father’s death.

In order to do so, he follows the methods of master criminal Arsène Lupin.

This was a character created by writer Maurice Leblanc in the early 1900s, whose presence is felt in the modern day series.

In the final episode of part one, Assane had left Claire (played by Ludivine Sangier) disappointed after failing to keep his promise to stop stealing.

There was also the small matter of Guédira (Soufiane Guerrab) working out what Assane had been up to.

In the last few moments, Guédira called out Lupin and Assane responded which confirmed the suspicions.

But will Assane be able to explain why he turned around and make sure he avoids prison?

How tall is Lupin actor Omar Sy?

Assane is portrayed by 42-year-old French actor Omar Sy.

He is probably best known for starring in films including X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jurassic World, and Transformers: The Last Knight.

When he isn’t taking on these kinds of roles, Sy is a comedian and in this realm will be associated with Fred Testot for their comedy sketches together.

One of his best-known comedic roles was in 2014 film Samba where he portrayed a migrant who was ordered to leave France but needed to stay under the radar long enough so he could fight to stay.

If you have noticed Sy towers above many of his co-stars in Lupin, then you won’t be surprised to know that he is over 6ft 2in tall.

In comparison, actress Sangier who plays Claire in Lupin is just 5ft 3in.

Speaking to LA Times, Sy said: “My height is an advantage.

“But when you are Samba, it’s different. It’s a disadvantage to have that height. “When you work, you don’t want to be noticed.

“So you have to hide – the way you tilt your head, you speak less loud. Everything is changed.”

The first five episodes of season one of Lupin came out on January 8 on Netflix.

The second half of the series is expected to come out in just a few months’ time.

As of yet though, an official release date for part two of Lupin series one hasn’t been revealed.

Lupin is available to watch on Netflix.
