The White Lotus star Lukas Gage has revealed his mum had a hilarious reaction while watching him perform in raunchy scenes.
The Euphoria actor, most recently seen in the fourth instalment of Netflix's psychological thriller You, played staffer Dillon in the first season of HBO's award-winning, satirical anthology series.
Created by School of Rock's Mike White, The White Lotus sees a bunch of wealthy holidaymakers staying at an exclusive resort where all of their shortcomings, biases and weaknesses are mercilessly exposed.
Season one was set in Hawaii, with Gage playing a young employee catching the eye of resort manager Armond, portrayed by The Last of Us' Murray Bartlett.
After propositioning Dillon for sex in exchange of a better shift pattern at the resort, Armond manages to spend the night with his employee in his office. In one explicit moment, the manager performs a sexual act on Dillon, but they're interrupted when Jake Lacy's obnoxious, entitled Shane walks in on them and threatens to ruin Armond's reputation.
That's when viewers are treated to a clear view of Dillon's buttocks. As it turns out, Gage's mum, too, was impressed, as the actor revealed in a recent chat with Variety.
"That's a great a**," he said his mum commented, adding: "Get that money. Get that bag and be committed."
That's undoubtedly a very supportive reaction from Gage's mum, who the star described as 'a cool little hippie lady'.
"With nudity, I think we both share sort of a European vibe," he explained.
Gage doesn't have an issue with shedding his clothes and engaging in explicit sequences, as his turn on You confirmed.
In the latest, London-set season of the Penn Badgley-starrer, Gage appears as American social climber and elite club owner Adam Pratt. Despite coming from money, Adam has proved to have poor business instinct, which he intends to make up for thanks to his relationship with affluent influencer and royal family member Lady Phoebe Borehall-Blaxworth (Tilly Keeper).
While his affection for Phoebe seems mostly genuine, Adam has kept one of his kinks from her.
"Everyone should feel heard and feel seen. I never wanted to make anyone feel scrutinised or like the butt of the joke," Gage said of his character's golden shower kink.
"I just believe that everyone should embrace all their kinks and everything that they love about themselves and not feel ashamed."Featured Image Credit: @lukasgage/Instagram/HBO
