In recent years, Pedro Pascal, known for starring in hit shows like “The Mandalorian” and “The Last of Us,” has become an internet sensation, due in part to the “daddy” persona that fans have attributed to him. However, Pascal’s “The Last of Us” co-star, Bella Ramsey, has expressed concern about this narrative potentially going too far.
During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Ramsey initially seemed amused by the trend, but also admitted to growing concern about its implications for Pascal. Ramsey was unsure about whether Pascal still found the ongoing narrative comfortable.
Pascal’s “daddy” title took off on social media following a series of viral interview clips where he acknowledged the role. The spotlight was particularly bright during The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Drama Actor Roundtable, where it was pointed out that a Google search of “Pedro Pascal + daddy” yielded 1.5 million results. Pascal responded with humor, acknowledging the fatherly roles he’s been playing recently, especially as the Mandalorian to baby Grogu and as Joel to Ellie in “The Last of Us.”
Pascal’s approach to this narrative appears to be tongue-in-cheek. He referred to himself as a “cool, slutty Daddy” in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, and playfully claimed to be a “bigger daddy” than Oscar Isaac during a Vanity Fair lie detector test. He added, “I’m older than him. Although, he’s a real daddy. He’s got kids and I don’t, but daddy is a state of mind.”
In the same interview, Ramsey shared their experience working with Pascal on the HBO series. They felt a strong sense of belonging on set. Looking ahead to the future of “The Last of Us,” Ramsey revealed that the upcoming season would delve into darker themes, centering around revenge and the perils of unconditional love.
While we continue to enjoy the performances of Pascal and Ramsey, it’s clear that the internet’s fascination with Pascal’s “daddy” persona has sparked an interesting conversation about celebrity personas and their implications.
