On the upcoming episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Luca Padovan will guest star as Tucker. Tucker is the half-brother of Rebecca, played by Rachel Bloom, and she’s excited when they reconnect under unusual circumstances and discover that they actually have lots of things in common.

The episode titled Everyone Wants Redemption will also show off Luca Padovan’s singing talent, something that Rebecca appears thrilled about.

But who is this young talent, who will guest star on tonight’s episode of the final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend?

Padovan is a young talent who only has seven acting credits to his name. Little is known about him, as he doesn’t have a biography on the internet.

His Twitter bio reveals he may live in New York City and he calls himself a singer, actor, theater nerd, a proud Gryffindor, a professional Disney fan and a comic book obsessor.

While some websites list his age at 15, we cannot confirm that this is accurate. But what we can confirm is that he has experience both on the small screen and in short films.

Luca has appeared in a short film called Russian Broadway Shut Down from 2014, where he played a child. He also voiced Jett in The Shimajiro Movie: Shimajiro in Bookland, and continued to play a character named Jett in Super Wings! Other than Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, he plays Paco in You, a television series from 2018 where he has filmed ten episodes.

In 2016, he also appeared in Broadway Kids Against Bullying: I Have a Voice, in which 75 professional Broadway kids join forces to fight bullying in school.

His work on Broadway includes Marvin’s Room from 2017, School of Rock – The Musical from 2015, and Newsies from 2012. In 2016, he was nominated for Outstanding Ensemble in a Broadway Show for School of Rock – The Musical.

There’s no official bio on his website and the only hints about his life away from the screen are through his Instagram account. His account reveals he’s a big Harry Potter fan and was blown away that he got to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child live.

Plus, it sounds like he likes some family time and some exercise. Even though he revealed he was bruised up and appreciated Olympians so much more, he appears to love some time outside and on the hills.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend airs Fridays at 9/8c on CW.
