Luke Benward

1995

Actor Luke Benward will next star in the independent war drama, "Field of Lost Shoes."Benward was born in Franklin, Tennessee, to Kenda Benward (née Wilkerson), an occasional actress, and Aaron Benward, a country music singer in the duo Blue County. His grandfather, Jeoffrey Benward, is a Contemporary Christian music singer. Luke began his acting career at the age of five, appearing as Mel Gibson's son in "We Were Soldiers." Not knowing how to read yet, he simply recited the pledge of allegiance-a move that would land him the role. He was also cast as "Stevie Dewberry" in the family film "Because of Winn-Dixie" at age eight, after choosing to audition with a toothpick in his mouth. The choice set him apart from the hundreds of boys vying for the role. The director, Wayne Wang, loved the idea and even used it in the film. In 2006, Luke was cast in Walden Media's "How to Eat Fried Worms" as the main character of "Billy Forrester." However, it wasn't until he was a freshman in high school
