Luke Pasqualino still gets recognised for his role in 'Skins'.
The 33-year-old actor was in his late teens when he was cast as Freddie McClair in the E4 drama and has gone on to star alongside former 'Coronation Street' actress Michelle Keegan in military drama 'Our Girl' as well as a string of American TV shows but explained that all these years later he is still approached for his breakthrough part.
He told Metro newspaper's SixtySeconds column:"It's still 'Skins'. 'Skins' was the very first job that had when turned 18. I think that is still the show that 1 get recognised from the most, just because of its cult following."
The 'Rivals' star went on to add that there "wasn't anything like" the angsty teen drama - which ran for seven series from 2007 until 2013 and also launched the careers of Hollywood star Nicholas Hoult and 'Game of Thrones' actress Hannah Murray but admitted that he was nothing like his character, who was into skateboarding and smoking.
He said: "There was nothing else like it at the time, so it stands out in a lot of people's minds. I wasn't anything like Freddie at all really. | didn't skateboard,I wasn't a smoker, I didn't do any of that sort of stuff. But I think the loving, caring, sensitive side of Freddie is more like who I am as a person."
Meanwhile, Luke revealed that he has something of a celebrity doppelganger in 'Made in Chelsea' star Ollie Locke and fans are always getting the two confused.
He said: "I get Ollie Locke from 'Made in Chelsea' a lot He's a good friend of mine as well and I know he's a very lovely person. So, I don't really mind that!"2023-06-09T09:02:33Z dg43tfdfdgfd
