Pedro Pascal currently holds the title of "DILF," or the "daddy of the internet." Despite starring as Oberyn Martell in the HBO hit series Game of Thrones, his latest stint as Joel in The Last of Us has led him to another level of stardom. The 47-year-old actor will also resume his role as Din Djarin in The Mandalorian season 3, so he will continue to rule the internet and have girls swoon over him in the meantime.
Given that the fans tend to rave over the Star Wars actor, he often gets a lot of requests, but Pascal recently revealed that there is one demand that he refuses to fulfill every single time. He noted that it’s a request that seems a little creepy if he’s not wearing his costume as the Mandalorian. “People come up to me and ask me to do the voice for their kids,” he said during a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
“It sounds inappropriate because it is a breathy, low register ‘bedroom’ voice,” Pascal told Norton, adding, “It is so creepy and doesn’t work in real life.” Pascal also noted that doing the character voice over a parent's cell phone to a young fan who wouldn't recognize him without his iconic helmet isn't proper for him. And, while he recognizes that his bounty hunter is popular among young fans, there's something about the character's voice that doesn't quite sit right if you can see his face.

While the costume may help sell the voice and make it easier to get into character, Pascal pointed out that it has several drawbacks when it comes to performing. “It's like putting on a head-to-toe weighted glove,” he told Empire. “Ironically, you can't see any facial expression because it completely immerses you in the world and instantly makes the character feel real — but you can't see sh*t!”
Season 3 of The Mandalorian will see Pascal’s Din Djarin without his helmet on and is slated to feature more intergalactic adventures between him and Groju. It’s set to premiere on Disney+ on March 1.
