Luke Mitchell has joined the cast of the hit drama Blindspot.
This is his third major US TV series in three years after Tomorrow People and Agents Of Shield.
However, the 31-year-old Aussie actor doesn’t hesitate when asked if he would ever consider returning to Summer Bay for a cameo.
“Absolutely I would, but I don’t know how because my character died,” laments the actor who played Romeo Smith on Home And Away from 2009-13.
“Maybe it could be a flashback or maybe it could be a dream sequence, where Alf is dreaming about Romeo. But I still have a lot of friends on that show so I’d definitely consider it.”
“I read the email with the character breakdown and didn’t think I was right for it so I decided not to interrupt my holiday,” he says sheepishly.
“But when I got back, they still wanted me to audition so I agreed to put myself on tape on the condition that I didn’t have to shave the beard I’d grown over the holidays.
“It turned out they wanted me to keep the beard and add a scar to my face and shave off part of my eyebrow too. So I love that it’s such a different role for me when every other character I played was so clean-cut.”
