Luke Mitchell: They are not dressed in capes. They are regular people living underground. They do a lot of hiding.
Zap2it: You were in “H2O: Just Add Water,” an Australian series, which is also a cult favorite around the world. What was that like?
Luke Mitchell: That was a lot of fun. It was very popular. I was in Season 3, and it was a cool concept. It clinched that I love this and want to do it, and if I can get paid for it, even better.
Zap2it: You were working in Australia. Why make the huge move?
Luke Mitchell: I wanted to go to Hollywood because that’s where the opportunities for me are. Enjoying what I do is a big part of it.
Zap2it: What was your training?
Luke Mitchell: It was stage-type training. I had done amateur theater shows.
Zap2it: How do you describe your character, John Young?
Luke Mitchell: He is a man who is probably being forced to grow up quicker than he was planning on doing. He is in his mid-20s. There is definitely supposed to be an age distinction between him and Stephen (Robbie Amell) to make a love triangle.
Zap2it: There’s a lot of fighting, flying, breaking through walls. Are you doing your own stunts?
Luke Mitchell: It is a lot of physicality, and it is pretty exciting with the level of stunts. The stunt doubles help us out from time to time.
