Luke Newberry trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. His credits include 'My Dad's the Prime Minister' (2003), a satirical comedy series originally written for a Friday evening broadcast but moved to Children's BBC, an uncredited role as Teddy Lupin in the epilogue to 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two' (2011), and as the Young Policeman in the early scenes of 'Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia' (2012).

His stage credits include 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang', 'Oliver', and 'The Secret Garden' at The Royal Shakespeare Company.

In 2012, his work included 'Eight Minutes Idle' based upon Matt Thorne's award winning novel about call centre workers, 'Quartet', a comedy set in a home for retired opera singers, starring Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Billy Connolly and Tom Courtney and directed by Dustin Hoffman; and 'Anna Karenina.'

In 2013, Luke appeared in 'Lightfields' for ITV, and played the lead in 'In the Flesh', a post-zombie apocalypse drama from the BBC. The initial three episodes of the series won a 2014 BAFTA Television Award for Best Miniseries, with Luke nominated for Best Actor. In the Flesh was renewed for a second, longer six part series which aired in 2014.
