    • Luke: I don't come from the background of this movie at all (The Prince and Me.) I didn't go to a private school or anything like that. I went to some pretty rough, comprehensive schools in South London. What surprised me about this is that I feel like I was just sort of a budding actor in London. I didn't really expect to get a lead role in a movie, just suddenly like this. It's been a real shock. I was just tiptoeing in the shallow end and I feel like somebody picked me up and shoved me into the deep end. I feel very privileged to have this opportunity because I have a lot of friends, other actors I went to college with, and it's a real tough, very competitive business.

    • Luke: My first interest [in film], I suppose, was when I was about eight or nine and I had a good friend whose father brought home the first version of a video camera and we were let loose with it for a weekend. We were eight or nine year old kids so we started making these terrible horror films with tomato sauce and white sheets to pretend to be ghosts. I just remember really enjoying that and the whole creative side of it. I took drama school after that and the whole time, it was just fun and I remember just enjoying doing it - being different people or dressing up in costumes. But I started taking it really seriously when I got into drama school in London and it was a three-year training. From there, I've been on a mission I guess.

    • Luke: (When asked if he learnt anything new while filming "The Prince and Me") I learned many new skills, like how to ride a horse. I had never done it before in my life. I had 3-hour intense lessons and had to learn how in 2 weeks, and not just ride a horse, but how to ride like a Prince sitting up quite straight and all. I also learned about table manners, how to shake hands properly and how to get out of a car correctly.

    • Luke: I want my acting career to continue the way it has been going! I'd like to play many different kinds of characters. I want to do good work that challenges me as an actor. This is the nicest character that I have ever played. (Edvard in "The Prince and Me") In the past I have only played thugs, bad boys and psychopathic criminals. But there is still a lot more I want to do.

    • Luke: I grew up in London. I have been acting professionally for 5 years. I went to drama school in England when I was younger and started to take acting more seriously after college.

    • Luke: There are a lot of actors that I really admire such as, Robert Deniro, Daniel Day Lewis, Sean Penn and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, to name a few. They are the kind of actors that really excite me and think that they are wonderful in what they do.

    • Luke: (his advice to kids wanting to be an actor/actress) If you have a dream, follow it, but you need to be aware that it is a very competitive business, before you go into it. There are a lot of sacrifices you have to make. For instance, I don't have much of a social life. You really have to commit yourself to it. A lot of it is about luck, perseverance and being at the right place at the right time. Also, have a back up plan as well, because it might not work out. Go to school and get your education! Have something else you can fall back on.

    • Luke: (on his most humiliating experience) My mum sent me to school wearing underpants made of a kind of see through net material. Anyway, that day I just happened to have PE. I had forgotten my kit so I was forced to carry out the PE lesson wearing only my vest and the pants! The whole class could see everything!

    • Luke: (When asked if he enjoys doing physically comedy like on The Prince & Me)
      I suppose so. I think it's quite rewarding. I don't really know what I'm doing, I'm just making it up as I go along (laughing). This is a romantic comedy and I'm keen to do quite dramatic stuff after this. I want to try out lots of things and do lots of different kinds of roles and characters. I'm keen to try and challenge myself.
