Lukas Gage is white actor from California, United States. He is of Irish, Swedish, and Asheknazi Jewish descent.
On November 20, 2020, Gage took to Twitter to share a video of an audition he did via Zoom. In the video, while he is fixing his hair, a director with a British accent says, “These poor people live in these tiny apartments like I’m looking at his, you know, background and he’s got his TV and his, you know.”
“You’re unmuted,” Gage replied. “I know it’s a shitty apartment. That’s why give me this job so I can get a better one.”
“Oh my God, I am so, so sorry,” the director apologized. Gage told the director, “Listen, I’m living in a four-by-four box.”
“It’s fine,” Gage continued. “Just give me the job and we’ll be fine.”
The video of the incident went viral and in the end, Gage did not pass the audition. He did not reveal the identity of the director, who turned out to be Tristram Shapeero.
It was Shapeero who revealed himself as the director Gage was talking to in the Zoom audition. The director explained his side through a Deadline article published on November 23, 2020.
