He is better known for his appearance on Home and Abroad, as Ryder Jackson, Alf Stewart’s long-lost grandson. And this week Lukas Radovich left viewers giddy with anticipation after he appeared in the rock band Yuma X’s music video for Secret Lover.
The video follows a close-up gay youth played by Lukas, who is engaging in a clandestine relationship with the boyfriend of his friend. The character of Lukas pretends to enjoy a female friend’s company on a road trip but develops feelings for the other man secretly.
Another fan wrote: ‘Well done. I love their faces. Great – it produces the sensation.’ It is not the first time the heartthrob in Summer Bay has played on the television.
Last year, the long-running Channel Seven drama launched the first nine-year gay storyline when Darius Williams (played by Ty Anderson) misjudged his heterosexual relationship with Ryder and kissed him accidentally.
Lukas told Digital Spy at the time that he had “like every other plot” handled the gay kissing scene. ‘Nearly every two weeks, we’ve been given new storylines, and I’ve just handled it like something else and everyone in the company has done and, we’ve just worked as if it was another storyline,’ he added.
‘We went through a few rehearsals on an actual day without kissing and then we ended up filming the embrace in the end. So we just handled it like any other scene.’ Meanwhile, the Sydney pair, speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Thursday, revealed the idea to include the Home and Away star was originally the idea of their producer.
‘We couldn’t have done it without her, really. On the day of shooting, we all met each other and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome,’ the Yuma X gushed out.
‘Early in the process, I cast Lukas (Radovich), and he came to my apartment and we sat down and wrote the script together,’ Maddy King explained.
She added: ‘We shot the studio scenes the day after the Mardi Gras parade which felt really perfect, the energy on set was magical.’
