4. He went all-out for the role of Luke. To get more in tune with the character, Charlie told HollywoodLife that he rented an acoustic guitar to “get closer to him. Because of that, I started doing these little open mics all around Los Angeles. There are so many different little places that you can go to, and it really introduced me to this open mic world, which is where Luke would have been back in the 90s.”
5. He loves the outdoors. Charlie is always posting photos on his Instagram page of his outdoor adventures. From backflipping off a bridge to hiking in Canada, Charlie is always up for discovering something new.
