Pedro Pascal in His Role as Din Djarin in The Mandalorian
If there’s one thing that makes Pedro Pascal loves his role as Din Djarin in The Mandalorian, it’s because his character is wearing a helmet most of the time. In fact, the actor admitted it’s what excites him as the Mandalorian himself.
In the Star Wars cover story of Vanity Fair’s June issue, he said he was a little surprised by how compelling his role could be because “he’s faceless.”
“Maybe I’m a little bit of a commitment-phobe because the coolness of it really excites me, and the life span of it really intimidates me,” he said.
As he only has to lend his voice for the role, it makes scheduling for him easy, letting him do other projects.
He is part of the new HBO series The Last of Us and the movie The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.
How can he do this? Pedro Pascal can record his voice work while a double plays Din on the small screen.
