Get ready for another season of The Mandalorian, because Pedro Pascal is ready to put on his armor and jump back into the action. While it may seem like a breeze to become the stoic bounty hunter, Din Djarin, Pascal revealed that putting on the infamous costume is no easy feat. In fact, he jokingly mentioned to Empire magazine that it’s like “putting on a giant weighted glove that covers your entire body”.
Despite the added realism that the costume provides, Pascal can’t help but feel somewhat limited when he’s on set. The irony is not lost on him that he can’t even see the other actors’ facial expressions, which is crucial for any actor in a scene. “But in the end, I see shit in it!” he exclaimed.
To make matters worse, the crew’s efforts to improve the outfit’s comfortability fell a bit short. Even with the slightest improvement, Pascal still finds himself feeling like he’s lost his sight.
The only thing he has to rely on is a tiny window that fogs up with his breath. This little window allows him to control his surroundings, but it doesn’t help with seeing what’s going on to the sides. If he’s not careful, he might even stumble upon a hole in the ground and fall right through it.
But fear not, fans of The Mandalorian! Pedro Pascal is willing to endure the discomfort to bring the character to life once again. Get ready for another action-packed season filled with epic battles, intense standoffs, and of course, Pascal’s impressive acting skills despite the armor’s limitations.
Becoming the legendary Mandalorian is no easy task, but Pedro Pascal has proven time and time again that he’s up for the challenge.
In fact, despite the countless hours of dedication required to wear the intricate costume, Pascal has shared that it’s a tool that he deeply appreciates. “When you’re wearing it, you immediately feel powerful, safe, respectable, and protective,” he humbly admitted.
It’s easy to see how the costume’s intricate details and heavy armor could provide a sense of strength and safety to an actor who’s stepping into the role of a fierce warrior. After all, the Mandalorian is one of the most iconic figures in the Star Wars universe, and it’s no wonder that Pascal feels the weight of the responsibility that comes with portraying such a beloved character.
But Pascal is no stranger to success, and he’s currently on a hot streak with his latest project, “The Last of Us”. The highly acclaimed series has been breaking records and receiving rave reviews week after week on the HBO Max platform. With his undeniable talent and unwavering dedication to his craft, it’s no surprise that Pascal has become one of the most sought-after actors in the industry.
