Luke Mitchell stars in "H20" on TeenNick as Will Benjamin.

Originally from the Gold Coast, actor and model Luke Mitchell is perhaps best known for playing Romeo in the Australian series "Home and Away."

Acting was never in the game plan for Luke, who played tennis from age 5 – 19 with the aim of going professional. He was training seven days a week when he realized tennis was the only thing in his life and he decided to give it up. Although the decision was hard and shocked those around him, there was a sense of freedom, "Once tennis was gone, I was able to spend more time figuring out what it was I really wanted to do," he says.

Luke's decision to give up tennis definitely came as a surprise to his family — he has an older brother (who coaches tennis on the Gold Coast), two younger brothers (one used to play tennis and the youngest plays at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra) and a younger sister.

Although Luke did not take drama at school and hated the compulsory classes, once he started acting lessons, he found himself in a scary but new world. Although his parents were very supportive, when Luke told his mother he was moving to Melbourne to be an actor, she told him he was either going to end up on the streets or become rich and famous.

Luke continued classes in Melbourne and had a 3-month guest role in "Neighbours" in 2008. He then moved back to the Gold Coast for a lead role in "H20," and the day after he wrapped, he moved to Sydney and landed a role in "Home and Away" only a week after he arrived.
