Who Is Joe Locke?

Joe is a British actor, born on September 24, 2003, and has become best known for his role in Netflix series Heartstopper.

Who Does Joe Locke Play in ‘Heartstopper’?

The LGBTQ+ TV series is based off a comic written by Alice Oseman, who also wrote and produced the show. Heartstopper follows the love story between high schoolers Nick (Kit Connor) and Charlie (Joe). Fans of the show and original comic have been showering the cast with so much love since its premiere in April 2022.

“I think the secret to the show’s success, which none of us were expecting, was how much Heartstopper resonates with older generations,” Joe told Netflix’s TUDUM in July 2023. “Quite selfishly, that’s something I hadn’t even thought of until the show came out. It was really great to see that it meant a lot to so many people.”

Who Does Joe Locke Play In ‘Agatha: Coven of Chaos’?

On top of Heartstopper, Joe is set to make his MCU debut in Agatha: Coven of Chaos later this year. The series will follow Kathryn Hahn as her iconic MCU character of Agatha Harkness, and will be a spinoff from Elizabeth Olsen‘s series WandaVision. Along with Joe, Kathryn and Elizabeth, Coven of Chaos will also star Aubrey Plaza, Isabelle Fuhrman and Debra Jo Rupp.

Joe shared his casting news on Instagram in November 2022, writing, “When I found out I got an email which said ‘welcome to the marvel universe’ and I screamed.”

While not much is known about his character, Agatha: Coven of Chaos star Patti LuPone shared some juicy details about the series.

“It’s a coven of witches, and I play Lilia Calderu, who apparently is in the Marvel world. I researched her, she’s hot, she’s really hot, she’s got a great body and hair,” Patti said while making an appearance on The View in April 2023. “I didn’t know there were witches, I didn’t know anything about the Marvel world. There are witches in the Marvel world. So, we are a coven of witches and the witches are: Kathryn Hahn, Aubrey Plaza.”

Although fans previously speculated that Joe would play Marvel’s most iconic gay superhero, Wiccan, who also happens to be the son of Wanda Maximoff, Patti revealed that he will be playing a “familiar.”
