Pedro Pascal Is Going To Have An Awesome 2021 And These Are The Reasons Why

Slowly but surely this Chilean actor has established himself as one of the go-to celebrities for directors who want some diversity and loads of talent in their cast. We got to know him when he got his eyes popped out in Game of Thrones and the Internet couldn’t get enough of the gruesome scene. He later became the absolute star of the first three seasons of Narcos, where he played a DEA agent with tons of heart and an old-fashioned, film noir look.

2021 will be HUGE, ENORME, MAYUSCULO for this gentleman, as he will appear in The Mandalorian, a spin-off series based on the Star Wars universe.

Here are 21 things that make Pedro awesome and will attract the spotlight in 2019.

1. He is now part of the mainstream in both sides of the Atlantic

This is a promotional shot for his Cartier campaign. Being the face of luxury brands is one of the holy grails for actors. The high-end watchmaker liked his Latino looks and his manly disposition. We agree.

2. He is a Netflix commodity now

He will appear in Triple Frontiera Netflix movie about guerrillas in South America. Pedro is one of the most regular faces in originals from the streaming giant, which will guarantee work for years to come.

3. He epitomizes the cool Latino man

He is not pretty like Leo DiCaprio, but more rugged like Humphrey Bogart. There are not many A-listers with those characteristics currently working in Hollywood, so the competition is thin!

4. He understands social media

Few celebrities truly understand social media and what it can do to advance their careers. But Pascal does! Here, for example, he shares an intimate and goofy moment… and drops in a shout out to Happy Socks!

5. He can take a selfie even if a bit borrachito

Here he is with his partner on a drunken night…. not that bad, but not that sober either! You are forgiven, Pedrito.

6. He is one of the OK guys…

He defends those who have to fight for their basic rights. This will expand his fan base significantly, as he is a vocal advocate for causes such as LGBT rights.

7. He stays true to his calling… damn fine acting

Many actors forget their roots and lose their passion once they start appearing in high profile movies and TV show. Not Pedro, who works in Broadway, mainly in adaptations of Shakespeare plays like King Lear.

8. Because perritos….

He constantly uploads photos of him and his furry friends…. nothing better for keeping current. Que ternuritas…. 

9. He speaks out when he is fed up

Contrary to many migrants who stop fighting for other migrants’ rights once they are in a comfortable situation, Pedro is not afraid to demand justice. The recent crisis concerning children in government detention centers proved this.

10. He is a cool AF tío

They are Pedro Pascal kids. Just look at him with his two sobrinos, chilling and being silly.

11. He partners with A-listers to demand political change

Here he is with Mark Ruffalo, an A-lister who is a big supporter of Bernie Sanders and basically politics that oppose the current government. What a pair of superheroes!

12. He hates toxic masculinity…. PREACH

Just read what this awesome image on his Insta account says. In the #metoo era, it is comforting to see that not all men are pendejos and that some of today’s boys will be taught right and learn to be respectful and speak for their actions.

13. Man, Prospect looks awesome

Nothing like a good old-fashioned sci-fi movie to establish an actor’s career. Prospect showcased Pedro’s talent to work with special effects and complex plot lines, which will surely catch the eye of studio executives.

14. La familia es primero

Pedro adores his parents and is not afraid to demonstrate it and share candid photos on social media. This always goes well with Hispanic audiences, who relate to celebrities who have strong family ties that fame and money cannot break. Here we see his dad’s birthday celebrations. Queremos pastel! 

15. Glossy magazines love him

Pascal’s face is pretty much omnipresent by now. This is a pajama shooting for GQ. Is this anything that this heartthrob cannot pull off?

16. He understands the world because he is a migrant

Credit: Instagram. @pascalispunk

His family is left-leaning when it comes to politics, which wasn’t such a good idea in Pinochet’s Chile. He grew up in Texas after having fled to Denmark as a child. Today’s world is global and he gets it, which translates into success in different markets.

17. He is a go-to talent for arthouse filmmakers

Following the success of Moonlight, director Barry Jenkins directed If Beale Street Could Talk, about the writer James Baldwin. Pascal plays Pietro Alvarez, a secondary but essential role in this story of literary beauty and self-discovery. There will be Oscar buzz for this film and Pedro will surely grace the red carpet during award season.

18. People will keep watching Narcos to understand the cartel wars

Narcos is one of the most popular Netflix franchises, and as the narrative of the show moves to Mexico, audiences will want to revisit the Colombian seasons to understand and connect the dots. There to meet them will be Pedro Pascal’s bigote and tough antics. In a rewatch we can really understand how crucial Pascal’s character, Javier, is for the moral definition of the show, as he knows that sometimes the law has to be bent in the pursuit of justice.

19. He will re-team with Wagner Moura and act alongside Gael and Penelope Cruz!

His Narcos counterpart and he will appear in Wasp Network, a movie about Cuban political prisoners. Gael Garcia Bernal and Penelope Cruz will also be part of this amazing cast! This is basically the creme de la creme of Hispanic talent, so it is great to see Pedro Pascal breaking bread with more established Latinos who have changed the face of the industry.

20. He was a role in the super secret Wonder Woman 1984

Director Patty Jenkins shared an enigmatic image in which Pascal appears in a Trump-like suit…. we can only guess that he will be the villain in the much-awaited follow-up to the first Wonder Woman film.

21. He will star in The Mandalorian, a Star Wars spin-off TV show!

We saved the best for last. Pedrito will star in The Mandalorian, the much awaited Star Wars universe TV show that is expected to spearhead Disney’s very ambitious expansion into the streaming market. The confines of the universe are now the limit for this amazing Chilean.

Pedro Pascal ‘Breaks The Internet’ With Red Carpet Look And This Is Why We Love Him

With everything going on in the world it can be easy to get distracted, or even fall out of the 24/7 news cycle. But every once in awhile there’s something so good and so wonderful that you can’t help but to get sucked back in. And this time it was Pedro Pascal – star of The Mandalorian and Wonder Woman 1984 – that had all the Internet talking after his recent appearance at the BAFTAs.

Pedro Pascal presented at this year’s BAFTAs and looked great doing it!

On Sunday, the British Academy of Film hosted the 2021 BAFTA Awards. Among the presenters were Mandalorian and Wonder Woman 1984 star, Pedro Pascal.

The Mandalorian and Narcos star presented the award for Best Foreign Film which went to the Danish movie, Another Round. But Pascal’s fans had one thing on their mind – and it wasn’t the award he was presenting.

Like several presenters before him, Pascal put his own spin on the black tie event by leaving his tie at home. As reported by GQ, the Wonder Woman 1984 star was dressed in a Prada tuxedo coat, which he paired with a white shirt, fitted suit trousers, and slick black shoes. Combined with his messy hair, his glasses, and that smile, it proved a rather intoxicating mix.

The former Game of Thrones actor has a loyal fan base, and they immediately took to social media to share their thoughts about Pascal’s BAFTA appearance.

Many pointed out he was a living, talking, walking thirst trap.

There were plenty who took to Twitter to express their absolute thirst of this man.

Another fan embraced his quirky beauty!

One Twitter user was going gaga for their ‘king,’ “Our king, @PedroPascal1, has a bald patch in his beard & stands pigeon toed & he’s so beautiful & loved. You don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. In fact, perfection is impossible to fulfill. Your imperfections are what make you beautiful. Be proud of them. You are loved.”

For many, it came down to that award-winning smile.

I mean you can’t deny the guy has a great smile.

But Pascal wasn’t the only one at the BAFTAs. Hugh Grant also gave a classically Hugh Grant speech about Ang Lee, and BAFTA Rising Star winner Bukky Bakray paid tribute to those who died in the past year in a moving speech that belied the newcomer’s age. And the likes of Nomadland and Promising Young Woman scooped up major prizes.

We always knew there was a reason that Pedro Pascal was one of the internet’s favorite boyfriends. He has always radiated an energy of warmth and kindness–turns out he also walks the walk.

On Tuesday, Pedro Pascal took to Instagram to support his sister, Lux Pascal, who recently came out as a trans woman.

A post shared by Pedro Pascal he/him (@pascalispunk)

On his Instagram page, Pascal shared a picture of his sister on the cover of Spanish-language Chilean magazine, Ya. The caption read: “Mi hermana, mi corazón, nuestra Lux.”

In an interview with Ya magazine, Lux Pascal opened up about how supportive Pedro has been of her transition.

Lux explained that Pedro “has been an important part of [my transition].” Lux, who is currently studying acting at Juilliard, says that Pedro was able to be a “guide” to her because of his artistic spirit.

“He’s also an artist and has served as a guide for me,” she said. “He was one of the first people to gift me the tools that started shaping my identity.”

But her brother wasn’t the only one that was very accepting of her decision to transition. Lux explained that her transition has been “been something that’s very natural for everyone” in her family.

And like many folks who are gender non-conforming, her family seemed to have known ahead of time. “It’s almost something that they expected to happen,” she said.

Lux revealed to Ya that, for a number of years, she identified as non-binary. But she eventually realized that she actually identifies as a woman.

“Moving through the world as a woman is much more simple for me, but I still advocate for nonbinary identities to have a space in society,” she explained. While she says that existing as a woman was the right decision for her, she still “advocates for nonbinary identities to have a space in society.”

Lux is also passionate about LGBTQ activism, saying that the world needs trans activists who are good, smart, informed, and who can be strong voices against transphobia, homophobia and racism.”

When asked if she feels discomfort at seeing images of herself before her transition, Lux said, “I don’t feel anxiety when I see old photos of mine. The same happens to me with theater: I see someone who was doing what they liked.”

As for her new name (she was previously known by the name “Lucas”), Lux said she didn’t want to lose the meaning of her old name, which meant “he who brings the light.”

She looked to one of her favorite movies for inspiration. “One of the characters in Sofia Coppola’s ‘Virgin Suicides’ was named ‘Lux’ which is light in Latin,” she said. “I was pleased with my childhood memory and that my previous name had signified something I was looking for myself.”
