Luke hails from the Sunny Island of Malta and this is his second time touring round Austriaafter he did so last year as The Little Prince! When he’s not doing acting things he can usually be found singing in pubs and clubs round London, watching RuPauls Drag Race, playing video games or just hanging out with his friends. He’s particularly looking forwardto eating the good Austrian food, climbing the odd mountain and shovelling snow out of the School Tour Van’s way with his cast-mates to make sure he gets to the schools on time!
