He needed money from his best friend
He probably wouldn’t have made it without Sarah Paulson: the actress supported series star Pedro Pascal wherever she could.
Everyone starts small: Series star Pedro Pascal (48) also had to experience that. Before he could celebrate his breakthrough in Hollywood, he was dependent on the financial help of others. As his best friend Sarah Paulson (48) revealed to “Esquire” magazineshe literally fed him in the 2000s and gave him money to buy food.
She gave him her daily allowance
In the cover interview, the “American Horror Story” actress tells about her buddy: “There were times when I would give him my daily wage from my job so that he could have money for food.” The two actors met in 1993 when Pascal moved to New York to attend Tisch School of the Arts. He then moved to Los Angeles and got a few roles in shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Undressed. But there was no great success, which is why he went back to New York in 2000.
“You just want him to succeed”
“I’ve died so many deaths,” Pedro Pascal once said, looking back on that time. Actually, he had planned to be successful by the time he was 29. Meanwhile, “everyone wants a piece of him,” says his girlfriend Sarah Paulson proudly.
Everything got better with Game of Thrones
Pascal’s big break came in 2014 with his role in the fantasy series Game of Thrones. Pascal himself once described his commitment as “a dream”. He then established himself in Hollywood with roles in the cartel series Narcos, the action comedy Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Wonder Woman 1984.
In November 2018, it was announced that Pascal would be starring in the first live-action series from the Star Wars universe. “The Mandalorian” introduced the world to Baby Yoda, whose foster father embodies the 48-year-old. In February 2021, he landed the lead role of survivor Joel on the post-apocalyptic HBO series The Last of Us. In addition, the actor fascinates an ever-growing online fan community. He is celebrated online as a “super father” because he takes care of a child and a young adult in each of his two blockbuster series.
