DA MAN: So, outside of the Chanel campaign, the two “Fifty Shades” sequels and “The Magnificent Seven,” where will we likely see you appear or perform next? How do you choose your projects?
Luke Grimes: The last two sort of go together. I’m not quite sure what the next step is. I feel like I am, or at least would like to be, a constantly changing and growing being, and I would like my work to reflect that. So, I just try to stay interested and keep looking for something that I feel I could add something to, or could add something to me artistically, whether that’s a film, a play, a TV series or something else.

DA MAN: Are there any particular filmmakers that you’d like to work with in the future?
Luke Grimes: Spike Jonze, Dennis Villeneuve, Olivier Assayas … The list could go on and on.

DA MAN: Beyond your work, are there any personal goals you’re looking to tackle?
Luke Grimes: Absolutely. I have a feeling this is where my “best work being off camera” comes into play. I am getting to an age where I feel my place in society in a different way. In my twenties, I did a lot of observing the world, almost dabbling in it to see where I fit. As I get a better understanding of who I am and my place in the world, I would like to find my niche where I could make a difference and give back.

DA MAN: Speaking of which, will we ever see an official Luke Grimes social media account?
Luke Grimes: I wouldn’t rule it out. At some point, maybe I will see a way in which I could add to it.
