Why Pedro Pascal Probably Won't Be Seen In The Mandalorian Ever Again

Warning: This article contains spoilers for season three, episode three of The Mandalorian.

The Last of Us has been one of the most popular shows this year, and its star, Pedro Pascal, is seemingly everywhere right now. However, you probably won't see him in his other well-known show, The Mandalorian, anytime soon.

Even though Pascal has portrayed the lead bounty hunter in the Star Wars spinoff series since its debut in 2019, he has only revealed his face on the screen three times so far.


The reason for this is because Din Djarin, his character, made a promise - called the Way of the Mandalore - to his clan, which prohibits him from removing his helmet.

In the third episode, we witnessed Din Djarin atone for his past mistakes by purifying himself in the Living Waters of Mandalore. After collecting the Living Waters, he returned to the Children of the Watch and presented it to their Armorer, who confirmed its authenticity and forgave his wrongdoing, welcoming him back into the group.


Since Din Djarin made considerable efforts to redeem himself, it is improbable that he would risk everything by breaking his vow and revealing his face.


However, this doesn't necessarily imply that Pascal is finished with the Disney+ program, so we can all relax.

Pascal has previously discussed his experience playing a character who conceals his face almost all of the time, and it appears to be challenging.

In a recent interview with Empire, he stated, "It's like putting on a head-to-toe glove with weights on it."

"It's ironic that you can't see any facial expression because it puts you in the world so completely, and instantly makes the character feel real – but you can't see s**t!"


Certainly, not having the ability to see is far from desirable, and Pascal acknowledges that it can be quite hazardous.


"They've continued to finesse and make it more comfortable, but it's like going blind," Pascal shared.

"Your breath completely fogs up the narrow slit that you can see through. There's no peripheral vision. If there's a hole, I'm gonna fall into it."

However, it's not all negative - Pascal also disclosed that wearing the costume aids him in getting into character.

He further stated: "When it's on, you immediately feel powerful, protected, dangerous, and like a protector. Albeit a 'protector' who can't see where he's going."
