"Luke is a guy who has this dark and mysterious past. He’s seen and done everything, and had everything happen to him. He’s damaged, wounded— a person who was kind of covered, not necessarily in scars, but in these tattoos that were signs of the pain he had experienced. On the outside, he had this mythical presence—the kind of guy that 1960’s girl groups like the Shangri-La’s used to sing about. He’s a bit of a contradiction – wounded and scarred on the inside, but with a wall of armor on the outside, the muscles, the tattoos, the hair, the charisma, etc. He’s like a big cat in a small cage – abused and dangerous and utterly compelling."

I really like his brain … I immediately felt a kinship with him.
