Home And Away heart-throb Luke Mitchell unrecognisable in selfie

Australian actor and model Luke Mitchell, who was once known as the cheeky and charming teenager Romeo Smith on Home And Away, has certainly grown up.

The 36-year-old has shared a selfie on Instagram looking worlds away from his Summer Bay character, with fans calling him “so hot”.

Posing with a grey turtleneck and a serious pout, the actor shared the photo on social media to celebrate the premiere episode of his new TV show, The Republic Of Sarah.

The drama series, which airs on Stan in Australia, follows a rebellious high school teacher faced with a mining company intent on destroying their town.

The show is one of many Hollywood projects Luke has been a part of since making the move to America.

Born in the Gold Coast, Luke had his first appearance on Australian TV in 2008 with a recurring role on Neighbours. He played “bad boy” Chris Knight in 11 episodes until his character was eventually killed off.

Luke then appeared in the teenage drama series H2O: Just Add Water, before joining the cast of Home And Away in 2009.

The Aussie actor stayed on the show for four years, during which he won the Logie Award for Most Popular New Male Talent.


Since his time in Summer Bay, he has starred in a number of US TV series, including Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Luke also had a starring role in the action thriller film Without Remorse alongside Michael B. Jordan earlier this year.

Many fans would be happy to know that he’s been married to fellow Australian actress Rebecca Breeds since 2013 after meeting on Home And Away.

In a recent interview with Now To Love, the former heart-throb admitted that he’d be open to a potential return to the Aussie soap opera which helped his career take off.

“I have extremely fond memories of Home And Away, he revealed.

“If it was a fun, little cameo to be had or you know, like a dream sequence, I don't know if it would be possible but if it made sense and worked out scheduling wise, why not?”
