Even though Luke's character in The Chi lives in Chicago, he is actually originally from New Orleans, Louisiana. For Interview Magazine, the actor detailed living in New Orleans.

He said, "Growing up in New Orleans, most of the people in my life who have inspired me are people that the world would make negative assumptions about. People might feel intimidated just off of the strength of how they talk, or how they look. But for me, they were always positive. Their hair in cornrows was always a positive, the tattoos were always a positive, the gold fronts—it was all still positive to me. That’s part of New Orleans."

The performer went on to say that specifically how New Orleans people speak can come off in a wrong way: "The way we talk, our passion behind how we talk, can be scary or offensive to some who don’t understand it and who, probably prematurely, view us from a lens of fear."

It's unclear whether or not Luke still resides in New Orleans, or if he has relocated to somewhere else. Based on his girlfriend Sunny's Instagram page, she lives in Atlanta with their child.

You can watch Luke in Season 6 of The Chi, available on Showtime and streaming on Hulu.
