Australian actor Luke Bracey always loved movies. From the time he saw the film "Gladiator" (2000) at age ten, he was taken with film's ability to tell moving and relatable stories. Born in Sydney, Australia in 1989, Bracey enjoyed surfing and rugby during his youth. He even considered trying to make it as a professional rugby player until he scored an audition for the soap opera "Home and Away" (7 Network, 1988-) at age 19. He won the part and appeared on the show for six months, during which time his love of acting was cemented. The next year, Bracey moved to Los Angeles to make a name for himself in mainstream Hollywood. After a few appearances on the series "Dance Academy" (WB, 2010), he scored a role in his first feature film, the Selena Gomez tween comedy "Monte Carlo" (2011). Soon, Bracey's star was on the rise. He was cast in the iconic role of bad guy Cobra Commander in the film "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (2013), and starred opposite Pierce Brosnan in the action thriller "November Man" (2014). After a romantic turn in the Nicholas Sparks' romance "The Best of Me" (2014), he was cast in the legendary role of Johnny Utah in a remake of the 1991 blockbuster hit "Point Break" (2015).
