In Front of the Telly with... Luke Pasqualino: From Only Fools and Horses to The Office - Exclusive

Ahead of the release of Snatch series 2, the former Skins actor tells us about his favourite TV shows, from childhood memories to his most recent binge watch.

Luke Pasqualino got his big break as Freddie in E4’s Skins, before garnering an army of fans thanks to stints in The Musketeers and Our Girl on BBC One.

But his most recent TV appearance is as Albert Hill in the AMC series Snatch - which you watch on BT TV exclusively.

BT TV customers can catch Snatch on AMC (BT TV channel 332/381 HD) when it airs on Tuesday, October 9 at 9pm - or binge the series 1 and 2 boxset on the BT Player now.

To celebrate the show’s return, we spoke to the 28-year-old British actor about his life in front of the telly - from his earliest TV memory to the show he wishes would make a comeback...

Albert Hill

What was the first TV show you remember watching, or your earliest TV memory?

The cartoons like Tom and Jerry.

What TV show did you used to watch when you came home from school?

Kenan & Kel, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, My Wife and Kids, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I watched a lot of Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. I used to watch a lot of Trouble too - that was a really good channel!

What TV show reminds you of your parents or family?

The Sopranos, because there’s always some sort of madness going on in our Italian household [Luke's parents are from Sicily and Naples].

The Sopranos

What was the first TV show you remember binge watching in one go?

Breaking Bad was the first show I ever binged - I think I watched five or six seasons in five days. I wasn’t very well so I watched about a season a day.

What’s the last TV show you really got into?

I watched something called Patrick Melrose with Benedict Cumberbatch, which was brilliant, and he’s amazing in it. I have a new level of respect for Benedict Cumberbatch after watching that.

Patrick Melrose

What’s your desert island box set - something you could watch over and over?

Only Fools and Horses, all day every day.

What TV show would you love to star in?

Hmm. I’d love to be in something Patrick Melrose-esque, which touches on all sorts of themes like families, and how broken families can be. It’s still funny, but tugs on your heart strings.

What TV show do you think should make a comeback?

That’s a tough one. It would have to be The Office for me. I was a big fan of that.

The Office

What’s on your TV watchlist?

Maniac on Netflix. I got about three minutes into it, then I fell asleep, not because the show was bad, but because I was incredibly tired. I started to watch it at the wrong time I think!

Do you have any TV regrets, like a show you wish you said yes to?

I actually haven’t, not off the top of my head. I have some TV regrets of shows that I did say yes to, but not that I said no to! But I won’t tell you what they are because I don’t want to upset anyone.
