Luke is 22 years old and comes from Wales (the land of Tom Jones and Gareth Bale). He first became interested in acting when he was 10 years old, playing ‘Elvis’ in a Christmas play at school. That was the start of a long journey. Luke tried for parts in his annual High School productions but had awful luck: he missed one year with a broken arm, another with appendicitis. His luck eventually changed when he played ‘Bugsy’ in Bugsy Malone and he then joined a local youth theatre playing ‘Jim Hawkins’ (a highlight) in Treasure Island and a weasel (a lowlight) in Wind in the Willows. A big break was playing ‘Azdak’ in Brecht’s Caucasian Chalk Circle with the Welsh National Youth Theatre, a role which involved learning to play bass guitar in 3 weeks! At 16, Luke was told that Conservatoire auditions involved singing and dancing as well as acting, so he took ballet classes with lots of little girls – which was very embarrassing. Luke finally gained a place at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Now after three years of training, here he is touring Austria – living the dream!
