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...

  • Movie: Inception
  • Food: D'amores Pizza
  • Book: Hatchet
  • Song: Californication

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”
