He is the faceless hero, but despite his unrecognizable facial expressions, he creates emotional moments. However, Pedro Pascal recently revealed in an interview what annoys him in his role as the Mandalorian Din Djarin.
A few days ago, the starting signal was given for season 3 of “The Mandalorian“, so we can look forward to new adventures of the title hero and his little companion named Grogu in the next few weeks. However, lead actor Pedro Pascal revealed in an interview with Empire that there is one thing that disturbs him.
Over the course of the first two seasons of The Mandalorian, we only saw Pedro Pascal without a helmet for a brief moment. The majority of his acting performance consists of his voice and body language. And it’s exactly this circumstance that sometimes drives the actor a little crazy. With an ironic undertone, he explained:
It’s like putting on a glove with weights. It’s ironic that you can’t see facial expressions because it allows you to fully immerse yourself in the world and the character immediately feels real – but you don’t see anything!
Of course, with the hero, vision and comfort are somewhat limited, but Pedro Pascal explained how despite tweaks by the costume team, some issues are inevitable:
“They kept refining it and making it more comfortable, but it’s like being blind. The breath completely fogs the narrow slit through which one can see. There is no peripheral vision. If there’s a hole, I’ll fall into it.
After a strong second season and a break of almost two years, ‘The Mandalorian’ started its third season on March 1, 2023. On Rotten Tomatoes, Season 3 received an 85% critic rating and an 81% audience rating. For comparison, the second season received 93% from critics and 91% from the audience. At Metacritic, the season has a critic score of 75, while viewers were somewhat disappointed with a rating of 5.5 out of 10 points. However, these are, of course, only reactions to the first episode, so the values can change significantly over the next few weeks.
