The actor has responded to the fan theory speculating over a romantic connection between his character and Danny Miller’s alter ego, and while he thinks a love triangle with Victoria Barton would be “fun”, he doesn’t think it will happen.
He told ED! and other publications at a recent press event: “I think the idea is fun, but I think what the fans want to see is very different [from the storyline].
“I see a lot of things online where people are like ‘No!’ and then others say ‘Yes!’ I just think that, at the minute, Luke has only got eyes for Victoria.
Luke has only got eyes for Victoria.
“I think a lot of the time in soap episodes, with people that hate each other and have a feud, people are always going to speculate about whether they actually like each other and stuff. But I don’t think so.”
The 28-year-old soap star also addressed the idea Luke, whose brother Lee Posner raped Victoria and later died after her brother Robert Sugden left him in a coma, could become a bad guy on the ITV soap, and he suggested his character “needs purpose”.
He explained: “Well, I don’t know. I relate Luke a lot to myself. He’s very assured, he’s very cheeky and a showman, but there’s definitely some cogs broken inside.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean he’s going to be a bad guy, but it means that he needs something. He needs someone like Victoria.
“He needs purpose, or maybe he needs to be fighting to be the favourite child. I don’t think you’ve seen all sides of Luke just yet.”
What do you think of the idea of a Luke, Victoria and Aaron triangle?
