Biography

After enjoying a successful run as a top television heartthrob in his native Australia, actor Luke Mitchell made the transition to American TV with the CW's science fiction series "The Tomorrow People" (2013- ). A former aspiring tennis professional, Mitchell gave up the sport at 19 to pursue a career as an actor. He made a sizable splash in his debut role as a bona fide cad on the long-running soap opera "Neighbours" (Seven Network, 1984- ) before adopting a more heroic persona for the fantasy series "H20: Just Add Water" (Network Ten, 2006-2010). However, it was his turn as the aptly named Romeo Smith on the soap "Home and Away" (Channel Seven, 1988- ) that minted Mitchell as a small screen star in Australia, a status he enjoyed until 2012 when he left his homeland for the States and a starring role as a young man with extraordinary powers in "The Tomorrow People." The show's high profile debut in the fall of 2013 underscored the promise of Mitchell's stardom in the challenging American television market.
