Pedro Pascal says he's enjoying being the internet's 'daddy'

Pedro Pascal says he's enjoying being the internet's 'daddy'

Pedro Pascal has admitted that he's enjoying being the internet's 'daddy', even though we all thought he hated it.

Pedro Pascal is having quite a year. Between his roles as Joel in The Last of Us and Din Djarin in The Mandalorian, the actor is more popular than ever but that popularity has come with a price. Pedro has had to deal with being the internet’s daddy. Yes, the daddy trend remains ongoing and Pedro has offered up some fresh thoughts on the whole debacle, referencing his “daddy parts”. The internet is going to have a field day with that one.

Fun fact, Pedro Pascal has never starred as a lead in a TV series with a rating under 89% on Rotten Tomatoes. That is quite the track record. Amidst the The Last of Us hype earlier this year, he also skyrocketed up iMDB’s charts becoming the most popular actor on the planet. Pedro is a pretty modest guy. He claims that video game Joel is much more attractive, but clearly it’s him that you thirsty lot are interested in (and for good reason). The actor has, despite how annoying it might be, adopted the daddy moniker. We’ve all seen the ‘cool, slutty daddy’ video, or the ‘slutty little knee’ memes. Now, we know that Pedro thinks the whole joke stems from his, and I quote, “daddy parts”.

Speaking of The Mandalorian, if you’re a fan, you’re going to want to check out Ahsoka which debuts this August.

Pedro recently participated in The Hollywood Reporter’s latest actors roundtable, where he admitted to enjoying the current ‘daddy’ phase. He said, “Yeah, I am having fun with it. [The daddy thing] seems a little role-related. There was a period where the Mandalorian is very daddy to baby Grogu, and Joel is very daddy to Ellie. These are daddy parts. That's what it is." It’s true that Pedro has played back to back father figures. I’m not exactly sure that’s what fans were getting at though.

Actor Jeff Bridges then asked Pedro if he was a daddy, to which Pedro replied, “I’m not a daddy and I’m not going to be a daddy,” and yet you are to millions, Pedro. Stay strong my man, I’m sure the daddy debacle will blow over eventually.

In case you missed it, season two of The Last of Us has been delayed amidst the ongoing WGA so it could be a while before Joel and Ellie are back on our screens.
