Celebrity Travel: Go away with Lauren Buglioli

Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

Lauren Buglioli has filmed on many locations, but she said shooting “A Jazzman’s Blues” in Georgia was one of her favorites. “I had an incredible experience working on (that film),” she said. “Savannah was a very idyllic setting. I was lucky enough to explore (the area) and I really got a sense of the city by riding the hop-on/hop-off trolley and walking around as much as possible.” Buglioli, who now splits her time between Atlanta, New York and Los Angeles, has two series out this year – Netflix’s "Florida Man" and “Bad Monkey” on Apple TV+.

Q: What are some good nearby trips?

A: My favorite short road trip to take is to the North Georgia Mountains to stay at Getaway cabins. It’s a wonderful way to escape and get out of your bubble. I also love going on walks and hikes with my dogs.

Q: A lot of people may have preconceived ideas about what "Florida Man" may be about, just because that phrase has become a meme.

A: I think those preconceived notions will be spot on! (He) is an ex-cop who travels to Florida to find a mobster’s runaway girlfriend. Criminal behavior, drama and hilarity ensue from there! We filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina, and it was absolutely beautiful. The beaches in Wilmington are incredible and I hope to go back to visit soon.

Q: How long did you live overseas during your childhood?


A: I moved to London with my family when I was 10 years old and I attended middle and high school at the American School in London. It was an incredible experience that definitely changed my life for the better, thanks to the people I met and experiences I had living there. I hope to go back to visit soon and for work one day.

Q: You've played so many interesting characters. Is there any one in particular that you think would make a great travel partner for you?

A: I love this question! I would love to travel with Ms. Holt – the rapping teacher from “Young Dylan” – because I feel like she’d be a party. Otherwise, I play some really tricky and sometimes evil characters whose company I don’t think I’d enjoy very much.

Q: And speaking of traveling, what is your favorite vacation destination?
