Pedro Pascal, the actor who rose to fame for the series ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Narcos’, is going through a great moment in his career, because just this December fans of the ‘Star Wars’ saga could see him in the second season of ‘The Mandalorian’, in addition to the release of the film ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, where he plays the villain.
Because of this, the actor was invited to participate in the program ‘The Tonight Show’ Jimmy Fallon, where he spoke of his work in both productions.
During the talk, Pascal revealed that one of the things he was asked the most during the recordings of ‘The Mandalorian’ was to keep the secret of the existence of Baby Yoda, whose real name was known this season. So the actor had to endure several months not to say anything, not even to his family members.
The actor succeeded and thus fans of the saga created by George Lucas were pleasantly surprised in 2019 when the series premiered.
Unfortunately, he could not save information from ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, as Pascal revealed to Jimmy Fallon that he told the whole plot of the film, starring Gal Gadot, to an Uber driver with whom he traveled. Fortunately for the actor and fans of DC Comics, the man did not contact the media and the plot of the film was not leaked.
In ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Pedro Pascal plays the villain Max Lord. In an interview he gave to ‘AP’ he said that he planned to be inspired by Gordon Gekko for the character, however, the director of the film, Patty Jenkins, asked him to stay away from that idea.
“She pushed me away from that idea. She said, ‘That’s not the Polish we’re looking for,” said the actor, adding, “We went after something much more unpredictable and exposed. What ended up anchoring me to him was much more vulnerable to what it would have been with a Gordon Gekko style guy. “
Jenkins mentioned the reason he cast Pascal as the villain for his movie, “I just loved him. I found him to be a great guy and a very interesting person and an excellent actor. When I sat down to think who could pull this off, I knew he could do it. There was something about Pedro that I knew could hit all the nails and also reveal a side of himself that I wasn’t sure he had used before. “
‘Wonder Woman 1984’ was released in theaters and on HBO Max on December 25.
