Lukas Gage is having a moment!

Not only has the star had quite a few viral moments on and off screen the past couple of years, but it's now being reported that Gage is engaged to boyfriend Chris Appleton.

The star's following increased drastically after a director criticized his apartment during a virtual audition at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I'm an advocate for fellow artists and fellow actors. If that made a difference in our day-to-day life of auditioning and being vulnerable and maybe it changed the people in power to be a little kinder and more considerate, I'll be the advocate and hero for that. That's an honor. At the end of the day, I just have to keep patting myself on the back. 12-year-old Lucas would have never believed that I'd be talking about doing a movie about blowing up a pipeline and here we are," Gage tells PRIDE.

Gage's latest film How to Blow Up a Pipeline follows a group of young environmental activists who try to sabotage an oil pipeline.

"I think for me, I had no idea what the hell was going on. I am not informed about this subject whatsoever and I was scared to death. That is a very good sign to me and if I can learn something, I think it's a recipe for success for me. There's a certain level of unhingedness that's been reoccurring in my characters, but I think for this one, it was very fun for me to learn about the climate movement. I always like learning new things and doing something different. It's important to have gratitude and be proud of myself."

The movie also stars Kristine Froseth, who many queer fans will recognize from Sierra Burgess Is A Loser and Birds of Paradise.

"Audiences are getting a suspenseful movie with amazing characters. They're all incredibly flawed and they're coming in for different reasons. There's a lot of different backstories I think many people can relate for different reasons. I think the conversations that are being had in the film are very impactful and very important," Froseth tells PRIDE.

How to Blow Up a Pipeline hits theaters this Friday. To see the full interview with Lukas Gage and Kristine Froseth, check out the video below.
