Pedro Pascal hates The Mandalorian's costume, specifically the helmet.
Pedro Pascal has made himself one of the biggest names in Hollywood in the last few years. He has anchored or appeared in some of the biggest and most beloved film franchises and TV series in the previous decade, primarily a particular Star Wars series that revitalized a galaxy far, far away, losing steam in the theaters. But Empire Magazine is reporting that Pedro Pascal hates The Mandalorian‘s best feature, the costume that makes the character who he is.
What makes Boba Fett and Din Djarin so incredibly cool is their armor; from the moment fans laid eyes on the bounty hunter in Empire Strikes Back to when they first saw him take flight, the Mandalorian armor became the coolest of the cool. But Pedro Pascal reveals in his Empire interview that it isn’t all it is cracked up to be, saying it feels like wearing a head-to-toe glove with weights on it. He also admits that he can’t see a thing out of it, stating that while there are only small holes in it to allow him to see out, there is also the problem of his breath fogging it up.
Pedro Pascal goes on to say that wearing the Mandalorian armor makes him feel powerful, protected, dangerous, and like a protector, much like his character is in the series. But that comes at the risk of having no peripheral vision and staring through a fogged-up narrow slit. He confessed that if there is a hole nearby, he is falling into it.
The Chilean-American actor is riding one of the fastest-rising stars in the industry. While he has been acting for over two decades in shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, he splashed onto the scene when he starred in more significant series in the last decade. He landed the role of the ill-fated Oberyn Martell in the global phenomenon Game of Thrones, which he parlayed into a leading role in the historical Netflix drama, Narcos.
Pedro Pascal may be best known for his role in The Mandalorian, but he has recently found his way onto the big screen with some gigantic roles and movies. He became a bit of a sequel actor in movies by landing the role of Whiskey in Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle, the role of Dave York in Equalizer 2, and the Donald Trump-inspired villain Maxwell Lord in Wonder Woman: 1984. He finally landed a role opposite Nicolas Cage in the unexpectedly excellent Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.
There are not a lot of arguments against Pedro Pascal’s turn as the lead in The Mandalorian as the series that saved Disney+ and Star Wars, but he isn’t resting on his laurels. Fans who want to see more of the actor can tune into HBO Max weekly to see him bring Joel to life in the video game adaptation The Last of Us. While some may debate on which show is better, it sounds like he likes that costume better than The Mandalorian‘s.
