Pedro Pascal fans agree The Mandalorian is still his best role

Pedro Pascal fans agree The Mandalorian is still his best role

Daddy is a state of mind, truly.

If I had a nickel for every time Pedro Pascal has been cast as a character who begrudgingly brings a young child in need of protection into his care and then becomes attached to them as their adoptive father figure, I would have two nickels. That's not a lot, but it's weird that it happened twice.

Pedro Pascal has the Internet in the palm of his hand following his performance as Joel Miller in The Last of Us, with fans praising the depth of sentimentality that he brings to the original grizzled survivor. He's also very visually pleasing, so while we have viewers who have hopped on the "daddy is a state of mind" wagon in the last few weeks, we have others introducing them to his roles in things like The Mandalorian, Narcos, Game of Thrones and more. Did you know he was in an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Yeah - for all of about 15 minutes.

Here's the trailer for the sixth episode of The Last of Us:

With a pretty packed career to pick from, there are discussions going on over which one is the definitive Pedro Pascal role. ¿Por qué no los todos? I get it, though, sometimes you want to see what the will of the people is.

According to Gamespot's poll which profiled over a quarter of a million people, 52% of them agreed that Din Djarin is their favourite turn from the Chilean actor. Joel Miller sweeps into second place with 23% of the vote, Oberyn Martell walks away (this time) with 14% of fans' hearts, and Javier Peña scores the final 11% of the ballot.

The Mandalorian returns to Disney+ for its third season on 1 March and, in an interview with Empire, revealed what it's like to play one of Star Wars' most revered characters. "It’s like putting on a head-to-toe glove with weights on it," he said. "Your breath completely fogs up the narrow slit that you can see through. There’s no peripheral vision. If there’s a hole, I’m gonna fall into it." It's slightly less cool now.
