Luke Winters


Local boy gets big movie role

When Wortham’s Luke Winters, then 10, and his father, Shane, heard last summer about an open-casting call in Waco for boys to be in a movie they were intrigued enough to go, but did not have much hope that Luke would actually get a part.

That was in late August 2017, during the time Hurricane Harvey struck Texas, and they were already planning to go to Waco the day of the audition. 

“We got up early that morning, and it was raining out,” Shane said, “and I told the kids, ‘Hey, do you want to have some fun?’ So we ran to Waco, went to the hotel and we were one of the first ones there.”


Local gets movie role

Wortham's own Luke Winters is slated to star in "First Man" opposite A-lister Ryan Gosling. Winters is pictured with Gosling while filming in Atlanta in the fall of 2017. Gosling stars as Neil Armstrong, while Winters plays his son, Rick, in the big-budget film. The movie is scheduled for release in October 2018. See the full story in the Aug. 16 edition of The Fairfield Recorder.
