Lucky Blue Smith may sound like an unusual name, but mention that name and people worldwide would instantly know who you are talking about. With 2.7 million followers on Instagram and 294 thousand Twitter followers, the 18-year-old, deep-blue eyes, platinum blond hair, six-foot-five Mormon model is no stranger to the world of social media or the fashion world. The New York Times describes him as “the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, and Justin Bieber rolled into one.” Vogue dubs him “The man of the moment…the reigning heartthrob of social media.”
Not only is Lucky a world-class male model but he is the drummer for the family band The Atomics which features his sisters Daisy Clementine, Starlie Cheyenne, and Pyper America, and he recently made a guest appearance in a skit on BYUtv’s Studio C. He is also the author of the book from Random House titled Stay Golden which gives his fans an intimate behind-the-scenes peek into his private world. About his book, Amazon.com states, “Lucky reveals all, from his style influences to his relationships, from his family to his fans, from music, modeling, and movies to fond memories of his childhood and a backstage look at his crazy life on the road. Along the way, he shares the various lessons he’s learned and offers refreshing advice on how to be happy, healthy, and confident in your own skin.”
As if being a top male model, being a part of a band, and book signings are not enough to keep him busy, Lucky landed his first acting role in a new feature film called Love Everlasting which debuted on iTunes on 15 November 2016 and is directed by Rob Diamond, a family friend. In the movie, Lucky plays Bridger Jenkins, who meets and falls in love with a girl named Clover, played by Christie Burke, while traveling across the country. About the movie, Lucky said that it is “a love story about inner beauty. I just liked that twist on it, instead of just the classic, two pretty people falling in love with each other.”
The film is about discovering the true beauty in others. Director Rob Diamond told Deseret News, “This film is a reminder that it’s what’s inside that counts, the value of inner beauty. If there’s a scarred person on the outside, there is still beauty on the inside; and if you’re a beautiful person on the outside, it doesn’t mean you are not wounded. This movie is for everybody.” The movie opens in Utah theaters on Friday, 10 February 2017. It premiered in California last November and can be found on Amazon, iTunes, VUDU, Google Plus, and other video streaming websites. It will also be released internationally this year.
