Childhood to Adulthood – How was the transition from your childhood into adulthood/teenage and what good and bad things you remember?
Luke James: I struggled often growing up as a kid, due to being severely bullied for being LGBT, as I am from a small countryside town, I always had dreams of being in the big city pursuing my goals it all sounded like a pipe dream back then, but I did NOT let the bullies grind me down, in-fact, It empowered me more to really go for what I want!
Struggle – What hardships you faced during your life?
Luke James: I had a really rough time when I moved to London from my hometown to pursue my career, not knowing where on earth to start nor did i have the confidence, I ended up losing my dreams for while due to life struggles and dealing with a domestic relationship, which let me on crutches for while, however I wasn’t going to let that defeat me, and not let that stop me as it almost did. But now I feel I am stronger than ever, and have become an advocate and public speaker for domestic violence in the LGBT community as well as well as pursuing my life long wishes i the creative industry.
Things that people usually don’t know about you?
Luke James: One thing people may not no, is I love singing and songwriting, and have done that longer than anything else, but I have always kept them personal as I was never brave enough to show them, which is strange, as when i am acting on stage or on live tv I’m not half as scared. But i am getting there!
