If an actor is not such a big star nor exactly a small-timer, what do you call him? We don’t know but whenever this kind of question comes to mind, we cannot help but think of Luke Grimes. He was in the Grey series and American Sniper and here to better understand him, we answer five questions about him.
How old is he?
Luke Grimes is 38 years old. He was born in January 1984 in Dayton, Ohio as Luke Timothy Grimes. His father, Randy Grimes, was a pastor which explains why he is named after a gospel in the Bible and why he attended a Christian High School. His mother is Angie Barker.
What do pastor children end up becoming? Yesterday, we published a post about a family of actors, fathers, mothers, children, all making money off the industry. Luke didn’t go the family way. He discovered his thespian calling when he did and he went on to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
In 2006, he made his debut in the movie called “All The Boys Love Mandy Lane”.
Is Luke Grimes married?
No, he is not and this is not a cue to attack as the star is not exactly single. He is in a relationship with the actress Gillian Zinser. She is the beautiful blonde star you saw in the teen drama series “90210” that aired on CBS between 2008 and 2013, and in handfuls of other credits.
When will this couple settle down? We have no clue. But we know that they have been dating since 2011 which is more than a century ago in the way love times are measured. Luke is 35, Gillian is 33. It is too early to brand him and her old bachelor and aged spinster and it is not too early to ask them searching questions.
Where is Luke Grimes from?
This question can be tackled in a number of ways and we will handle all the possible answers so as to cover all the bases. Luke Grimes is from the Milky Way. He is from this planet and to the best of our knowledge, he has never left the earth.
By birth, he is from Dayton, Ohio. Today he lives in Los Angeles and he can be also be said to be from California. He could run for governor there so it is not out of place to say he is from the giant blue state. Luke is white but we do not know for sure where his ancestors came from.
His surname, however, has English origins which strongly suggest his ancestors are from the British Isle.
Is Luke Grimes in Fifty Shades series?
Yes. He was in “Fifty Shades of Grey” (2014), “Fifty Shades Darker” (2017), and “Fifty Shades Freed” (2018). He played the role of Elliot Grey, the elder brother of the divisive hero of the series Christian Grey. According to Fandom, the character of Elliot Grey is described as “as tall, muscular, and wide-shouldered, with curly blonde hair and blue eyes. He is funny, affectionate, and laid-back.”
Haters will say what they wanna say but this is not a bad match, you’d agree.
What is his net worth?
According to sources, Luke Grimes is not exactly Mansa Musa. He is worth 500 thousand dollars. We do not know how much he is paid per movie or per episode of his television appearances. As of August 2019, Grimes has appeared in 19 movies and going by his estimated worth, he didn’t charge a king’s ransom.
Apart from the popular Fifty Shades series, he was in “American Sniper”. He played the role of Marc Lee, the brave Navy SEAL who made exploits in Iraq where he ended up losing his name. A gesture that was rewarded back home in the United States with a medal of valor.
