Luke Schroder Q&A

Sep 14, 2011

17-year-old model and actor Luke Schroder took on the difficult task of portraying a character with Asperger’s Syndrome in his new movie, A Mile in His Shoes, starring Dean Cain and debuting on GMC at the end of September. Find out more about Luke in this exclusive Kidzworld Q&A!

KW: When did you first know you wanted to be an actor?

  • Luke: I first knew I wanted to actor when I was about 12, after acting in a school play.

KW: Your dad is also an actor, do you think that influenced you?

  • Luke: Of course my dad being an actor influenced me, but it was my decision in the end to study acting and audition for jobs.

KW: What was it like getting the part in A Mile in His Shoes?

  • Luke: It was really exciting and I really couldn’t believe it until the first day on set and I was actually working in front of the camera. It was so cool and so much fun, an amazing learning experience.

KW: In “A Mile” you play a character with Asperger’s Syndrome, was that difficult? How did you prepare for the role?

  • Luke: Yeah, it was very difficult preparing for the role of a teenager with Asperger's. I wanted to be respectful, but at the same time not reserved with the way I played my character. I worked with an acting coach and researched Asperger’s. I was really happy with how the character Mickey turned out.

KW: What was the most fun thing that has happened on set for you?

  • Luke: I got to work with a miniature pot belly pig named ‘Artimus’ for a whole day and that was really fun, I love animals.

KW: Who are some actors that inspire you?

  • Luke:  I like young actors like Max Thieriot, Cam Gigandet, and Shia LaBeouf, I feel like I can learn a lot from watching their work

KW: You have also modeled overseas, what was that like?

  • Luke: That was a crazy experience walking the runway in front of 6,000 people in Paris. It was kind of surreal.

KW: We hear you’re also really active, what are some of your favorite sports?

  • Luke: Surfing is my number one passion; I just got back from a week long surf trip to Nicaragua. I also love fishing and archery.

KW: Who would you ideally like to work with in the future?

  • Luke: Ideally i'd like to work with Selena Gomez and swoop her from Justin Bieber hahah. I'd honestly like to work with any talented young actors my age.

KW: Do you have any projects coming up?

  • Luke: There are future projects but you’re going to have to wait and see!

Your Fave...
