— Luke (and Bertram), in Christmas Story
Lucas Filbert Ross (born Lucas Filbert Olson) is one of the main characters on JESSIE. He is shown to be a very mischievous and unresponsible boy. He was adopted from Detroit, Michigan when he was six years old. Luke is the second oldest child of the Ross family, after Emma. He is currently 16 years old. Luke is portrayed by Cameron Boyce.
Lucas Philbert, preferred to be called "Luke" was born on November 2, 1999 in Detroit, Michigan to Vanessa Olson, which was announced in Lizard Scales and Wrestling Tales. He was adopted at the age of five by Morgan and Christina Ross. Luke has a stuffed bear named Kenny The Koala.In his first days of school, Luke quickly became popular among his friends and peers. He is shown to be athletic, but does poorly grade-wise. Upon meeting Jessie, Luke quickly forms a crush on her but despite the fact that there's a six year age gap between them, he still tries to flirt with her. Luke's favorite thing to do is take advantage of his slightly younger brother, Ravi, but in the end, Luke gets what he deserves.
Luke is a mischievous, sarcastic, cool, and a prank-loving boy. Several times he is shown to be dull, especially in math, yet he is clever when it comes to playing tricks on his siblings and Bertram. Luke is nice and caring. Luke is a good kid, sometimes he pays attention and sometimes he is a little bit self-centered, especially when it comes to impress girls. He is shown to be intelligent, in Identity Thieves, but it was because he never tried, that he did poorly in school.
Luke is very talented at dancing, especially breakdancing. He often finds toning his dancing skills down to be difficult. In the episode "One Day Wonders" he breakdances while Jessie plays the song "Texas Guys" in Central Park. In "Toy Con" he and Emma give Bertram salsa dancing lessons so that he can impress a girl he has a crush on, by showing him some "basic steps," that no novice regardless of their weight can keep up with. When Bertram's self-confidence at the dance contest gets the best of him, Luke takes his place. The girl describes him as "a bit of a showboat," which is proven to be quite true when he and Emma win the contest hands down. He also had a crush on Bryn Breitbart, but Bryn became mean to him.
