Gilles Marini, 36, the French-American actor best known for playing Luc Laurent in Brothers & Sisters and Dante in Sex and the City: The Movie, lit up the stage on the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars: All Stars on Monday night, when he paired up with last season's winner with Donald Driver, Peta Murgatroyd, switching from his eighth season partner of Cheryl Burke.
