Having stuffed the ballot box to win the Oakdale U election, Luke is falling back into some old patterns and destructive habits on As the World Turns.

And portrayer Van Hansis wouldn't have it any other way. He recently spoke to Soap Opera Weekly about the character's changes:

Are you having a good time with Luke's fall from grace?
Oh, yeah, it's been great to play, because you can only do so much with a character that is, for the most part, 100 percent good. You can only take it to certain places, because nobody's like that — everybody does bad things; everybody. So to have a good character — because I do think that Luke is essentially still a good character — doing bad things and making bad decisions, that's some of the most fun stuff to play as an actor.
