Male on Monday: Luke Pasqualino

Yesterday  the BBC's eye candy fest that is The Musketeers which stars Luke Pasqualino started. PHS editor and Harlequin Historical author Michelle Styles takes a look.

I will admit to a soft spot for D'Artagan. And the latest incarnation -- Luke Pasqualino is very easy on the eye. The other reason for watching The Musketeers is Peter Capaldi who is the new Dr Who as well as playing Cardinal Richelieu in the BBC adaptation of the classic novels.

Before Musketeers, Luke Pasqualino was best known for his work in Skinsc. He also played Palao in the Borgias -- the young servant whom Lucretzia first strays with in series one. He also played the young Adama in the Battlestar Galatica prequel that was released in 2013.

He is from Peterborough in Cambridgeshire and did some modelling as well as working in his father's salon. He is of Italian extraction. He and his father are very close.  He attended  state school in Walton near Peterborough and took drama classes at the Stamford Art Centre (which goes to show that not all of the up and coming English actors went to Eton and thence to Cambridge). He was born in 1990 and is 6' 1". He apparently found all the sword work very strenous at first and much more tiring than riding.

YOu can read the interview Luke did for the BBC media centre here

I look forward to seeing more of the Musketeers. (I assume Masterpiece Theatre will be showing the series at some point in the US) Luke Pasqualino is definately an actor to watch.

You can find Luke on Facebook
