Luke Brandon Field is a British actor. He is known for his roles in the films One Last Night and Jojo Rabbit, among others.

He is the son of television and film producer Gary Shoefield. His parents are both Jewish. His father is also of one quarter English (non-Jewish) descent.

Regarding his family, he has said:

I came from a middle-class background, in this relatively Jewish neighborhood. Both my parents were Jewish, I grew up Jewish. But I found the community could be cliquey, and had questions about the religion that weren’t being answered.

Luke’s paternal grandfather was Harry A. Shufel/Shoefield (the son of Daniel Shoefield/Shufel and Sarah/Cissie Hyman). Harry was born in Whitechapel, London, England, to a Jewish family.

Luke’s paternal grandmother was Marlene J. Gumbiner/Gumbinar (the daughter of William Gumbiner and Ada Louisa Baylis/Bayliss). Marlene was born in Brighton, Sussex, England. William was born in New York, U.S., the son of Isidor Gumbiner and Sarah Halosky, who were Jewish emigrants, from Poland and Lithuania, then part of the Russian Empire. Ada was born in Fylde, Lancashire, England, the daughter of Albert Ernest Baylis and Bertha Greenwood, whose father was born in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, to English parents.

Luke’s maternal grandfather was Sydney Lionel Price (the son of Frederick R. Price/Levy and Estera Faktor/Fakter). Sydney was born in Croydon, Surrey, England, to a Jewish family.

Luke’s maternal grandmother was named Irene E. Bowman (who is likely the daughter of Morris Bowman and Fanny Wolchak/Wolszak). Irene was born in Stepney, London, England, to a Jewish family.
