The 10-month shoot was the very antithesis, Mazzello says, of a "turn up, learn your lines and leave job". It was a very intense experience, so you had to really believe in what you were making." All of which definitely seemed to float Mazzello's boat.

There were no beds, there was no running water, and people were getting injured. The cast lived in mucky uniforms, ate on the hoof, put up with a level of fatigue and comfort that mimicked that endured by soldiers in a real-life battle zone (albeit without the threat of actually being shot). "On the first day, they pulled us to one side and said, 'Here are the 10 things that can kill you on the set. I don't mean that we didn't have chairs with our names on the back of them. An earnest and enthusiastic man, who dresses like he's off to a college lecture (brown corduroy slacks, shirt, sensible shoes), he clearly takes great pride in The Pacific.

It is, after all, a mega-blockbuster TV show: drama production on a scale so vast, so expensive, and so extravagant, that it simply demands to be watched, if only so viewers can witness the evolving possibilities of the filmed portrayal of warfare.

It is called The Pacific, cost upwards of 0m [£130m], and chronicles in forensic detail the American conflict against Japan during the Second World War.

Like every actor in the series, Mazzello was required, long before shooting began, to become an armchair expert in his subject.

Spielberg's office therefore sent him "several crates" of research material about the conflict, together with footage of every TV interview his subject had ever done.
