Luke started filming on McLeod's Daughters in the role of Patrick Brewer in 2005.
"I play Patrick Brewer — the brother of local vet, Dave Brewer. It is a great role — Patrick is an adventure-seeking and fun-loving type of guy who loves living life to the extreme says Jacobz.
Patrick is the type of guy who doesn't hang around anywhere for long — his wild, adventure-seeking side keeps him on the move, looking for his next big thrill. After an accident that leaves him temporarily blinded, he realises that having people around and belonging somewhere might not be such a bad thing and takes a job at Killarney — and that's where the fun starts!"
