Stephen Tompkinson says he's still influenced by the late actor Pete Postlethwaite.

The pair met on the set of 1996 film Brassed Off, which made Stephen a household name.

"I always think of Pete," he said of the actor, who died of cancer last year.

"He was so good. He had the best economy of truth I think than any actor I've worked with."

Stephen, who stars in ITV1 drama DCI Banks, added: "I always try and think, 'What would Pete do at this moment?'. I'm not as good as him, I never will be, but I do keep trying."

:: DCI Banks begins on ITV1 on Wednesday, October 10
