Luke was born in Manchester England, the youngest of four children. At the age of three, he emigrated to Sydney, Australia where he grew up in the beachside suburb of Cronulla.
Classically trained, Luke studied drama and music at The McDonald College of Performing Arts – a selective full-time institution in Sydney. After graduating, he fast-tracked his Bachelor of Business in two years at Bond University, before moving to London where he was discovered by legendary West End casting director, Pippa Ailion, during preproduction of Spring wakening the Musical - which he auditioned and workshopped with Broadway creatives Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater. Luke’s talent, passion for acting and unique look lead him to Los Angeles, and subsequently the big screen, where he appeared in features such as Gold Circle Films' THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING, AS NIGHT COMES, SAVING MR. BANKS and a role alongside Aussie Pal Teresa Palmer in THE EVER AFTER.

In 2016, Luke starred as the lead and Wes Craven's last serial killer in the film THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, which premiered to a sold-out crowd at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival.
Released in April 2016, Luke's turn as the creepy, obsessed killer garnered him critical buzz from fans and critics alike, including The Wrap, The Line Up and Press Pass LA. Recent film credits include, Syfy movie, TRUTH OR DARE, directed by Nick Simon, indie horror, FRIGHT FEST and indie thriller DARK PLACES. Luke will next appear in David Robert Mitchell’s UNDER THE SILVER LAKE, which will see him star opposite Andrew Garfield, Riley Keough, Zosia Mamet and Jimmi Simpson. UNDER THE SILVERLAKE premiered at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, with A24 releasing it worldwide this December. Off camera, Luke has a branded content production company, Go Forth Content, with partners Rachael Taylor and Tahyna Tozzi. A skilled writer, he is currently working on his fourth feature script and has his latest work, In Repair, in pre-production at CulminationProductions. Philanthropically, Luke is an ardent supporter of Oxfam International. He also works locally in Los Angeles with the VET Hunters Project – connecting homeless veterans with government programs, and BCR Burbank – a center for adults and children with developmental disabilities.
