Luke Antony Treadaway (born 10 September 1984) is an English actor, best known for appearing in the film Brothers of the Head.

Personal life

He attended Queen Elizabeth's Community College in Crediton.

Luke played Barry Howe, the band's singer, and his brother Harry played Tom Howe, the guitarist and song-writer. During rehearsals and throughout the shoot, Luke and Harry were connected to each other for fifteen hours a day, wearing sewn-together wetsuits or a harness. They also slept in one bed to simulate the conjoined nature of their characters. The Treadaways performed all tracks featured in the film themselves live on stage, as well as recording nine tracks for the sound-track album.
