In February 2010, Pasqualino was cast in the Warner Bros. Pictures supernatural horror film The Apparition, alongside both Twilight star Ashley Greene and Harry Potter star Tom Felton.

Pasqualino portrayed the younger self of William "Husker" Adama in the prequel, which was first distributed as a ten-episode online series on Machinima.com starting 9 November 2012, and then aired in early 2013 as a televised film on Syfy. [8] [9] Later in 2013, Pasqualino also played in a French television series, Jo. From 2014 to 2016 he would star in the BBC production of The Musketeers, based on the Alexandre Dumas novel.
