EW has released some new promotional images from ‘Every Day’ featuring actors who play A. You can see the one featuring Lucas in the gallery along with an older photoshoot image from the Foxes Magazine shoot.
Lucas gave an interview for Cliche Magazine about a month ago. You can read it at their website and a couple of excerpts below. There’s also a new photoshoot image along with the article which you can see in HQ in the gallery.
How did your role as Gilbert in Anne with an E come about for you?
It was actually a very fast auditioning process. I sent in a couple of tapes through my agent in Chicago, and then I was asked to fly out to meet the producer, writer, and to read with Amybeth. Then, a couple weeks later, they called and asked if I wanted to play Gilbert.
When you auditioned for the show, what do you think you did that stood out to the casting directors to help land you the role?
I don’t think I based my Gilbert solely off of the Gilbert in the book. Understanding that Moira’s writing style was going to be a little more gritty and interpersonal, I wanted to make my Gilbert fit accordingly.
Lucas is featured in the new issue of Foxes Magazine which you can get here. Unfortunately, there seems to be no web version available. You can also see a couple of photoshoot images in the gallery.
There’s a new interview out for Anthem Magazine along with two new images which you can check out in the gallery. There’s a little bit about what he’s up to next as well that might be interesting.
Now I’m wondering what kind of stories you’re interested in telling on the other side of the camera since you mentioned wanting to make films as well. Do you write screenplays?
Actually, I’m currently working on a feature length film. My friends and I are prepping to shoot this summer. It’s no budget, favors and friends, and as much camera equipment as we can find. I’m really attracted to character-driven stuff, even if that means sacrificing the traditional arc of a story or a movie. Even if it’s very dull and straightforward, as long as it’s true to people and relatable, that’s the kind of stuff I’m really into. I find that my writing tends to be that way. I’m not even done writing the script yet and what I did write is 40 or 50 minutes of just dialogue between people. One of my friends were like, “Listen—something needs to actually happen.” [Laughs] So we’re creating an actual story that goes along with it.
As posted yesterday, Lucas is featured in the new issue of Visual Tales Magazine and you can see his interview and photos here (starting on page 129). You can also see all the images in their full glory in the gallery.
