Personal Quote:

That's part of the problem with being a kid actor. When your show's over, nobody informs you that your career's over, too.

Trivia:

When the first Flipper movie was released in 1963, Luke traveled to New York for the premier. LIFE magazine was doing a photo shoot and did not believe that he rode on the back of Mitzi the dolphin so they interviewed Director Ivan Tors, Writer and Producer Ricou Browning and Luke separately to verify that he had indeed rode the dolphin like a horse as seen in the movie.

Trademark:

Cut off jean shorts - in "Flippers New Adventure" Luke wore just cut offs for 90% of the movie See more »
