Pedro Pascal is no stranger to the world of big franchises, having starred in Game of Thrones, The Mandalorian, and now The Last of Us. In his recent Saturday Night Live monologue, Pascal joked about his roles in these series and the recognition he gets from fans. His monologue also provided an insight into the filming conditions of The Last of Us and The White Lotus, which Pascal humorously compared.
Pedro Pascal began his monologue by joking about how people recognize him from his various roles. He said that people often stop him on the street and ask him to do the “Mando voice” from The Mandalorian, which he described as a bedroom voice that sounds “porny” without the mask.
The actor then moved on to discuss the filming conditions of his new HBO series, The Last of Us, and compared it to another critical darling, The White Lotus. He said that for some HBO shows, you get to shoot in a five-star Italian resort surrounded by beautiful people, but he chose to shoot in a freezing Canadian forest instead.
The monologue concluded with Pascal’s humorous comparison between the two series, saying that he chose to shoot The Last of Us in a freezing Canadian forest “by a guy whose head looks like a genital wart.”
