Day 26 - Your least favorite recurring character?

Luka Martin (Bryant James)

This was originally Rose, but when I started to write this up, I realized that I do genuinely like Rose (even if it's based mostly on amusement at how lame she is), and I started out with a "I feel guilty for putting her name, and I swear it's not just the Damon/Elena aspect," when it hit me that there IS someone recurring who I definitely do dislike. When I first decided to do this and jotted my answers down, I wasn't at that point with him (I think he'd only been in a one, maybe two episodes), which is why I picked Lauren Cohan for least favorite guest-star. Now I'd put him in that category too. I mean, I have issues with Rose and I think that Cohan is pretty charisma-less, but there are things I like about Rose and thus obviously Cohan. This guy? Nah. Bad casting, in my opinion, he's an annoying, two-faced, get-out-of-the-way-of-my-uber-adorable-Jeremy/Bonnie-growing-romance character. That's right, I'm talking about Luka.


Blah, blah, blah, he supposedly feels bad about using Bonnie. I don't care. I don't like him, I don't trust him and I don't find him hot. And he's getting in the way of Jeremy/Bonnie. So, blech to him! Least favorite recurring character!

totally agree! bonnie/jeremy would be SO ADORABLE.
Arabian: Stefan01arabian on January 16th, 2011 02:19 am (UTC)
Right, so Luka needs to go bye-bye!
summerofsoaps: jeremysummerofsoaps on January 15th, 2011 07:09 pm (UTC)
Yes!!! He is so annoying. And that's not just because he's Devon on the Young and the Restless, one of the most useless soap characters right now, either.
Arabian: Jeremy & Bonnie01arabian on January 16th, 2011 02:19 am (UTC)
Sooooooo annoying. I don't watch Y&R, but whenever I think of Luka now, I think of your irritation with him from that show, hee!
summerofsoaps: alexis i have my doubtssummerofsoaps on January 16th, 2011 02:31 am (UTC)
Haha. He actually won a Daytime Emmy for younger actor a few years ago, in a totally WTF moment. If I didn't already think the Daytime Emmys were bs, that would've nailed it!
Arabian: ATttD - Sorryarabian on January 16th, 2011 02:37 am (UTC)
Yup, they're total BS, this is just even more illuminating proof!

I agree! This guy isn't suitable for a REAL triangle because it implies that for a triangle to work, you need to have people who support the two different pairings (like Stelena fans and Delena fans). With this one, I wonder if there's even a single person who is craving to see Bonnie and that guy go out (unless they're anti-Bonnie and don't want her to touch Jeremy but that's another story.)

I don't know which one annoys me the most, him or his father but all in all, they're two lying bastards who aren't even cool enough to be respected as badass characters.

This, this, this! You actually need to support both potential pairings ... at least a little bit!

Eh, his dad's okay at this point, but I'm shallow, and I think he's good-looking, LOL!

Although you know I have a strong dislike for Rose, I think I have an even stronger dislike for Luka. For me he's a totally pointless character. I know that he was brought into the mix not only for the Elijah storyline, but probably as a means to help Bonnie with her witchcraft, but I'm not feeling it. He and Bonnie (Katerina) really have no chemistry and those strange sex-like witchcraft sessions are creepy and quite frankly icky.

If TPTB wanted to bring someone in to help Bonnie hone her witchy skills they should have brought back Lucy. Not only was she badass, but they are family. It would have made more sense.

You're right, he is not hot and he's getting in the way of a Jeremy/Bonnie pairing that has the potential to be pretty awesome. Hopefully Luka will be a casualty of the writers, sooner rather than later.
Arabian: Damon05arabian on January 16th, 2011 02:21 am (UTC)
he's a totally pointless character.

Yes to this. And to the creepy, icky sex-like witchcraft sessions. And to having it be Lucy (who was awesome) as opposed to Luka (who sucks!).

You're right, he is not hot and he's getting in the way of a Jeremy/Bonnie pairing that has the potential to be pretty awesome. Hopefully Luka will be a casualty of the writers, sooner rather than later.

Sooner please, oh, pretty please!

Telling you right now that I'm stealing this for my Day 26.

I can't stand this guy, lol. Everyone else has at least something entertaining or endearing about them. I zone out when he comes on the screen.
Arabian: Damon01arabian on January 16th, 2011 02:22 am (UTC)
Go for it. So annoying. And you're right, it's not just that he sucks, he's also boring. Sucky and boring! Ugh.
Heather-Ann: Delena - poollinsell_farm on January 16th, 2011 02:56 am (UTC)
I'm totally on board with your choice. I haven't trusted Luka from the instant he was on the screen. No chemistry with Bonnie and standing in the way of Bonnie & Jer. So, yeah - blech.

I may be joining crowandfog, and stealing this for Day 26 as well ...
Arabian: Damon & Elena06arabian on January 16th, 2011 03:01 am (UTC)
Go. For. It. He sucks. And is boring.

The more of us bleching him, the merrier.
Heather-Annlinsell_farm on January 16th, 2011 03:15 am (UTC)
Thanks - that makes tomorrow's blog (for me) much easier.

Need to turn off my computer now and take a pill before my back seizes up. See you tomorrow.
Arabian: Damon & Elena01arabian on January 17th, 2011 01:45 am (UTC)
Feel better! (And glad I could help with your next meme decision.)
Heather-Annlinsell_farm on January 17th, 2011 02:05 am (UTC)
You actually helped me with 2 meme's - Days 25 & 26.
Thanks for that and for the healing wishes :o)

agree with you on this. I don't like him one bit and he' doesn't care about her he's using her and it's getting in the way of Bonnie/Jeremy. Which I like. :D
Arabian: Damon04arabian on January 17th, 2011 01:23 am (UTC)
Nods. I agree.
luvbama: kat&damonluvbama on January 17th, 2011 03:29 pm (UTC)
I can't stand this guy for a variety of reasons, but the main one is how totally clueless Bonnie is about him. I might deal better with it if the guy was made of win or if he had the pretty going on. He's a total fail on both, so he's GOT TO GO! Bonnie needs to be awesome, and she just isn't whenever Luka is with her. :(
