With the mid-season finale of THE TOMORROW PEOPLE looming, fans are dying to find out the fate of John Young (Luke Mitchell), who was captured by Ultra in last week’s episode “Thanatos.” Fortunately, with one more episode to go before taking its holiday hiatus, THE TOMORROW PEOPLE is not going to leave fans hanging and they will see whether John can find a way to escape or if he will become the newest victim of The Founder and his minions at Ultra.
In a recent press interview at the Warner Bros. Mondo International Press Tour, star Luke Mitchell talked about what lies ahead in John and Jedikiah’s thorny relationship, all the fun he is having filming the show, and why it stands out amongst all the other superpowered shows out there on television.
John was in a pretty bad spot when last saw him in last week’s episode. Is there anything you can tease about what’s going on with John and Jedikiah (Mark Pellegrino) coming up?

I play him as a good guy, but everyone has their flaws; their good points and their bad points. But I think he’s written a very specific way with a very specific history and it’s just interesting.
Do you have a favorite episode or scene yet that you’ve filmed for the show?
LUKE: Episode 8 is my favorite so far, closely followed by Episode 4 for obvious reasons. But there’s been some really cool stuff that I’ve really enjoyed in most of the episodes. I’m really enjoying what the writers are writing for my character, especially the flashback scenes and the stuff between John and Jedikiah. Those are the scenes I like most. Continue reading
