It seems that a lot of Australian actors do a run on Home And Away before making it big elsewhere, and Luke Mitchell, who played Romeo Smith on the series, is no exception.
THR is reporting that Mitchell has landed the role of John Young in the CW adaptation of British classic The Tomorrow People. THR notes that John’s specialty is teleportation, which will come in handy when recruiting new Tomorrow People. Nicholas Young played John in the original series, and we’re assuming the surname is a nod to the original actor.
Like fellow CW stars Phoebe Tonkin and Claire Holt, Mitchell’s previous credits also include H2O: Just Add Water.
The Tomorrow People pilot, which also stars Peyton List, will be filming soon.
