    30 Things You Should Know About Luke Mitchell

    The Blindspot actor takes our Q&A!

    What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

    COFFEE!! If I can. But usually my puppy's "puppy dog" eyes win me over, and I take him to the park before he pees his pants.

    When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?

    Ha! Depends on the time of day! Well, it actually depends on what kind of mood I'm in and who I'm with... If it's just chill vibes then probably a beer. If I'm with mates probably a beer. If I'm with my wife, I might get a cocktail or a glass of wine.

    What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?

    "Awesome." I definitely overuse it.

    What is the last thing you searched for on Google?

    Hmm...probably tattoo designs. I've been thinking about getting a tattoo for a while but just haven't done it yet.

    Who is the last person to call or text you?

    My wife. She's shooting a movie in Perth, Australia, right now.

    What's the wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

    On my laptop it's like this nature pic of some mountains surrounded by idea where it's from. On my phone, it's my wife, Bec, and our dog, Alfie.

    What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

    I can't remember a specific situation but I am terrible at remembering names and so I am constantly in awkward situations 'cause someone will say "hi" to me and use my name and I know them but for whatever reason I can't think of their name right then and I'll be like, "hey... mate," "hey... how are YOU?" or "helloooo..." It's always awkward, but I try be as smooth as I can and continue the conversation without using their name. And then if I'm lucky, I'll remember their name during the conversation and I'll make sure I use it when I say bye.

    What is your TV guilty pleasure?

    Guilty pleasure? I feel like that's something that I shouldn't be watching but do anyway? I recently found myself watching multiple episodes of MasterChef and really getting into it! But in terms of good drama, I just finished Daredevil Season 2 and obviously, Stranger Things.

    What's the first CD you bought?

    It might've been something like Fat Boy Slim, actually.

    And what music are you currently listening to?

    Macklemore is playing right now. Love that guy. But I have a fairly diverse taste in music, depending on the mood I'm in.

    What is the one food you cannot resist?

    Bread. Hot fresh bread. My mouth's watering right now.

    What movie makes you laugh the most?

    The first thing that came to mind was The Little Death, a little Aussie movie about sex and relationships. It's SO good!

    What toppings do you like on your pizza?

    I like pizza on my pizza. I'd probably eat any pizza but I do like chicken and bacon and cheese and jalapeños.

    What drives you absolutely crazy?

    I hate negativity or pessimism. Ain't nobody got time for that!

    What was your first online screen name?

    Hmm... No idea but it definitely wasn't cool!

    What’s the last thing you copied & pasted on your phone?

    Probably something boring like a link to a Real Estate website... You know what? It was a link to a holiday destination.

    What’s your favorite curse word?

    "Fuck!" You can convey a lot of emotion with that baby.

    What's your favorite emoji?

    I'm really liking the "upside down face" at the moment. The smiling poop is a classic.

    Pick one: Kittens or puppies?

    PUPPIES. But I also like kittens. I'm an animal lover.

    New York or Los Angeles?

    Oooh... I've spent a lot more time in LA and this is my first time spending longer than a month in NYC. I might be leaning slightly toward NYC right now but ask me again after winter.

    Twitter or Instagram?

    Depends on what's being posted! Maybe Instagram because animal pics/videos.

    Bacon or Nutella?

    They are both fantastic inventions. Don't make me choose.

    Britney or Christina?

    Ha! When I was a teenager I had a big crush on Britney.

    Coffee or tea?


    NSYNC or BSB?

    Neither? I know next to nothing about both.

    2 a.m. or 2 p.m.?

    2 p.m.? But depends on what's going on!

    Beyoncé or Rihanna?

    I used to have a massive crush on Rihanna but that has now faded. So, Beyoncé.

    Netflix and chill or just Netflix?

    Netflix and chill, baby!

    Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?

    See above answer to "NSYNC or BSB"...

    And finally: tell us a secret.

    I am a fantastic breakfast chef.
