When it comes to exuding sheer, megawatt sex appeal in front of a camera, Australian actor and author Luke Arnold has got it going on.

The 36-year-old star, who’s set to join the cast of Home and Away for a guest stint soon, amped up the heat at WHO’s Sexiest photoshoot – but was far too modest to agree with the general consensus of those in the studio that his image will burn up these pages.

You’re a natural at this. Are you comfortable in front of the camera?

I am, but I’m not completely new to this shoot. I think I was last here in 2014, just before I played Michael Hutchence in Never Tear Us Apart.

What does sexy mean to you?

Authenticity, I think, is very sexy. I think it’s authenticity in how you carry yourself, how you treat other people and what you put out into the world – that’s hot.

When do you feel at your sexiest?

I don’t think you can describe it as a physical thing. I think you feel hot when you’re surrounded by great company, when you know you’re with people who know you and who you can trust implicitly.

That to me affects how I feel about myself in all areas than anything else. Getting dressed up in a suit isn’t sexy to me, I just feel like I’m in costume.

Luke – who’s longest-running role is Long John Silver in Black Sails; a prequel to Robert Lous Stevenson’s novel Treasure Island – has been spotted filming at Palm Beach many times over the past few months. His character, who goes by the name of Levi, will act as a new love interest for Summer Bay regular Jasmine Delaney who is played by former Bachelorette Sam Frost.

The on-camera couple were snapped enjoying a steamy kiss and a Champagne picnic overlooking the water back in September.

In 2018, Luke starred in Heather Graham’s Half Magic alongside Molly Shannon and Stephanie Beatriz. He’s also a successful writer, releasing his debut novel, The Last Smile in Sunder City, earlier this year.
