Born in Sydney, Australia, Luke Bracey made his screen debut in 2009 with a recurring role as devious bad-boy Trey Palmer on the Australian soap opera Home and Away. He also played Aaron on the TV series Dance Academy before moving to Los Angeles at age 20.
In Los Angeles, his career quickly took off. He landed a role as Riley in the feature film Monte Carlo (2011), which starred Leigton Meester and Selena Gomez, followed by more work in feature films such as G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013), The November Man (2014) in which he starred opposite Pierce Brosnan and The Best of Me (2014), playing the younger version of James Marsden's character.
His surfing background came in handy when he auditioned for and won the role of Johnny Utah in the Point Break (2015) remake. Luke spoke to Tribute.ca about filming the movie, saying, "The schedule was insane. We went to four continents in six months." He has since appeared in the war dramas Hacksaw Ridge (2016) alongside Andrew Garfield and Sam Worthington and Danger Close (2019) before playing a man who, fresh out of prison, has to deal with his criminal past in Lucky Day (2019).
Besides surfing, Luke, who divides his time between Los Angeles and Sydney, he loves to watch movies and counts Forrest Gump as one of his favorite movies of all time.
