Career

Along with twin brother Matt Goss, he started his career with the highly successful 1980s boy band Bros. In total he has charted with thirteen hit singles in the UK. When Bros broke up in the early 1990s, Goss embarked on a solo career and also formed Luke Goss and the Band Of Thieves. His autobiography, "I Owe You Nothing", was a top 10 best seller book (according to his Mini-Biography on the IMDB website), and went on to have three subsequent printings. He also began to appear in stage musicals including Grease and What a Feeling!, and has turned to acting in films full-time, with his first most notable role being the villain Jared Nomak in Blade II. He also appeared as The Creature in the Hallmark Channel's Frankenstein. Goss can be seen in the 2004 crime drama, Charlie in which he plays real-life gangster Charlie Richardson. Again, in the 2005 comedy, The Man he stars as another villain, Joey/Kane.

He has since had roles in One Night with the King, as King Xerxes and Something in the Clearing, playing Randy. He appeared in Bone Dry, as Eddie and in the thriller Unearthed, as Kale. Goss received a CAMIE (Character and Morality in Entertainment) Award for his work in One Night with the King on May 12, 2007 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. Both One Night with the King and Bone Dry were viewed at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. Bone Dry premiered in Los Angeles on January 9, 2008. He will be Executive Producer of the upcoming motion picture, Street, starring Vivica A. Fox and Rachel Miner, which was to have been filmed in 2008.

In the autumn of 2007, Goss returned from filming Hellboy II: The Golden Army in Budapest, Hungary, in which he plays Prince Nuada.[1] The sequel was released in North America on July 11, 2008. In February, 2008, he signed to play the role of Steve Fox in Tekken, which was filmed in Shreveport, Louisiana. He was seen in a commercial for the new Cadillac Escalade Hybrid. In January 2010, Goss won the role as Frankenstein in Death Race: Frankenstein Lives[2] under the direction from Roel Reiné, which began shooting on location in Eastern Europe in February, 2010.[3]
