Actor Ned Luke, best known as Michael from GTA V, has contracted Covid-19. It has now been confirmed that he has been committed to hospital, and we wish him a very speedy recovery! Get well soon, dear Ned Luke!

Gamers from all corners of the Earth know the GTA V actor as Michael De Santa, an absolutely iconic role from one of the best and best-selling games ever. Yesterday came the sad news of Luke's illness, when the actor made an announcement on Instagram.

The actor announced the news of his Covid illness via Instagram:

Of course, many positive well-wishes immediately sent their best wishes Luke's way. From the film and TV world, as well as from the gaming scene, came endless messages and prayers for “Michael from GTA”. Leading the way, of course, was Shawn Fonteno and Steven Ogg, the actors of Franklin and Trevor respectively.

Ogg sends Ned Luke love, and appeals to Luke's fighting spirit. This seems familiar, doesn't it? Perhaps from Trevor and Michael in GTA V, just like how Fonteno referenced the extremely popular "Lamar Roasting Franklin” meme.


Ned Luke has also received many nice messages on Twitter, both from fans and official accounts in the industry.
