Who Plays Luke in Julie and the Phantoms? Meet Charlie Gillespie

Netflix has another hit on their hands with Julie and the Phantoms, a family-friendly series from High School Musical director Kenny Ortega. The series, which debuted its first season Sept. 10, follows Julie, a teenage girl who is trying to get her love for music back after the death of her mom, who was a songwriter. One night, while Julie is in her mom’s old studio, she’s surprised by three unlikely guests.

This is where the phantoms come in, as a boy band who died in 1995 after they ate some bad hot dogs. At first, Julie is rightfully freaked out by the boys —  Luke (Charlie Gillespie), Alex (Owen Joyner), and Reggie (Jeremy Shada) — but she comes around to them, and they slowly help her rediscover her passion for music.
