Lucien Laviscount has hailed Ashley Park as a "true fighter" following her recent health scare.

The 32-year-old actress was hospitalized earlier this year after suffering septic shock that affected multiple organs, and Lucien has now heaped praise on his 'Emily in Paris' co-star, revealing that she's doing "really, really well".

Lucien, 31, told 'Entertainment Tonight': "That woman that right there is a true, true fighter in everything that she does.

"To have her back glowing and shining, being as crazy as ever, that's the real win for the year."

Lucien also revealed that he has a strong bond with Ashley and his other co-stars.

The actor - who plays Alfie on the hit Netflix show - shared: "We're kind of chosen family ... We hang out and we kick it. Just have to have Ashley back, she's back stronger than ever."

In January, Ashley revealed that she'd been hospitalized with "critical septic shock" in the early days of 2024.

The actress took to social media to detail the extent of her health scare, explaining that her tonsillitis "spiralled" into a potentially life-threatening situation.

Alongside some photos and videos taken from her hospital room, Ashley wrote on Instagram: "As I sit here processing and recovering from the first few weeks of 2024, the only word I can think of is grateful. While on holiday in December into New Years, what started as tonsillitis spiraled into critical septic shock, which infected and affected several of my organs. I am grateful that my health has improved despite what we had initially been told. (sic)"

The actress - who is best known for playing Mindy Chen in 'Emily in Paris' - subsequently thanked her co-star and boyfriend Paul Forman for his support.

Ashley wrote: "Grateful most of all to @peforman for being unconditionally by my side through all this. You calmed my fears and held me through ambulances, three foreign hospitals, a week in the ICU, scary ERs, countless scans and tests and injections, excruciating pain, and so much confusion all while we were alone on the other side of the world far from those we know. I love you Paul. More than I can ever say. (sic)"
