While Disney + is still a new addition to the online streaming landscape, it already has massive hit in the hands of space western series The Mandalorian. Pedro Pascal plays Din Djarin, a bounty hunter known as a Mandalorian, on the show. Djarin was modeled after Boba Fett and has vowed never to take off his helmet in front of anyone. This poses a problem for Pascal during filming, as the actor revealed that the most difficult part of his role as “Mando” is emotions while wearing the helmet.
“The biggest challenge in playing Mando in the second season is still the obvious, how to subtly convey a scene dramatically and keep character convincingly, be it through vocal intonation or physical stillness / posture, large movements, small movements because he’s frugal anyway, let alone armored from tip toe to tip of his head. It’s a physical challenge that is creatively handled when it comes to how technically you can achieve this. It will always be especially unique to this one Respect. “
Pedro Pascal first came to the fore with a significant role in game of Thrones. The actor portrayed Oberyn Martell, a charismatic king who spoke as quickly with his speech as he did with his weapons, whose battle with Gregor Clegane became one of the most famous scenes in the series. It was challenging for Pascal to play a man like Mando in a few words, and he credits his work in the theater for preparing for the assignment.
“I’m not even sure I would be able to do it if I didn’t have the stage experience to understand how to position yourself. How to physically frame yourself in something and a story with a gesture, with a Attitude or to tell with a very, very specific intonation. “
Of course, while Pascal is technically the star of The MandalorianThe show’s true breakout character is the adorable alien child who fans called Baby Yoda, who recently went by the actual name “Grogu”. While fans can’t get enough of Grogu, Pascal found another cast member on the set of the show’s second season as a much more intriguing object, namely the writer and comedian Amy Sedaris, who plays the gruff Tatooine mechanic Peli Motto.
“I followed Amy Sedaris like a puppy. [I was] like ‘Hey again. I won’t leave your side until you wrap yourself up. And she says: cool. I love the kid – it’s really adorable – and it’s so fascinating to see how it works, but someone who lets you spit right into your helmet will always be my favorite thing. “
Created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian Stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito. New episodes appear on Disney + on Fridays. This news first appeared on Entertainment Tonight.
