Clarke Peters only tends to take good roles, and it transpires, when speaking to the man himself, he strives to be a part of shows and films that mean something. His latest, and certainly a series that falls into that bracket, is La Fortuna, which has fantastical, playful elements, but at its core it a story about heritage, culture and the importance of nations being the rightful owners of their own historical artefacts.

We discussed the show with the actor, as well as his time spent working with co-star Stanley Tucci. We even speak, fleetingly, about his next project, the Whitney Houston biopic I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

Watch the full interview with Clarke Peters here:


Alex Ventura, a young and inexperienced diplomat, has inadvertently become the leader of a mission to recover the undersea treasure stolen by Frank Wild, an adventurer who crosses the world looting common heritage from the depths of the sea.

La Fortuna will premiere on Monday 17th January at 21:00 GMT on AMC, exclusively to BT TV customers.
