Pedro Pascal accompanied his sister, Javiera Balmaceda, to the 2023 Oscars.

As it turns out, Pedro’s sister Javiera is also in the entertainment biz! She is Amazon Studios’ head of local originals for Spanish-speaking Latin America. She worked on Argentina, 1985, which was nominated for Best International Film at the 2023 Oscars. Javiera and Pedro attended the event together.

Back in February 2021, Pedro dedicated a heartwarming Instagram post to Lux after his sister came out as a transgender woman, captioning a photo of Lux on the cover of Ya magazine with, “Mi hermana, mi corazón, nuestra Lux,”

Who wouldn’t want a big brother who wrote, “My sister, my heart, our Lux,” in their honor to his millions of Instagram followers? Just when we thought we couldn’t love Pedro more!

It turns out Lux was the one Pascal sibling who ended up following in Pedro’s big acting footsteps. Lux is an actor herself, and a transgender activist (you can follow her on Instagram @luxpascal_).

Lux actually got her MFA in acting from Julliard School sometime in 2023. In addition to starring in several Chilean films, Lux also had on role in Narcos back in 2017, so she and Pedro were once co-stars!

6. Why is Pedro Pascal so popular?

Believe it or not, Pedro Pascal has been in the acting business since 1996. He had minor roles in popular series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Touched by an Angel, and several Law & Order iterations. He previously operated under the name “Pedro Balmaceda,” but later changed his surname to “Pascal” to honor his mother who died in 1999. His big break, however, wouldn’t come until 2014, when he appeared in Game of Thrones during its heyday.

In Season 3 of the once-popular HBO series, Pedro portrayed Oberyn Martell, the hotheaded prince of Dorne. Despite his brief time and brutal death on the show, he quickly became a fan favorite during his run.

Shortly after his GoT character was killed off, Pedro soon appeared as a lead actor in Narcos, the acclaimed crime drama on Netflix. He would go on to play the titular Mandalorian in the widely-popular ongoing Star Wars series.

Just recently and most notably, Pedro Pascal starred in The Last of Us, the acclaimed live-action adaptation of the popular PlayStation game of the same name. His performance as Joel Miller has received universal praise.

He’s also appeared in other popular films like Wonder Woman 1984, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, the latter of which provided us with an incredible Pedro Pascal meme face.

Yet despite his massive popularity, he is still surprisingly down to earth. His audition for Game of Thrones proves that he’s shockingly down to earth, even amidst his popularity. In an interview with EsquirePedro revealed that his audition was recorded by his friend on his iPhone. Even with his “amateurish” audition, he landed a role that would end up being his breakout.

Even now, he fully acknowledges the internet’s obsession with him and has fully embraced it to hilarious effect.

Of course, a little allyship on his part doesn’t hurt either. He is an open advocate of LGBTQ+ rights, showing full-blown support for his sister, Lux, when she came out as transgender in 2021.

Pedro Pascal is practically everywhere these days, but his prolific acting chops and affable personality have made him wildly popular over the years and we’re all here for it.

7. Who is Pedro Pascal married to?

It was during his time on Game of Thrones that the first and only rumors of a public relationship surfaced. Back in 2014, Pedro was said to be dating co-star Lena Headey, though the 300 actress married Walk Like a Panther director Dan Cadan in 2018.

Pedro was also rumored to be linked to ‘Emergence’ star Maria Dizzia.

At some point or another, gossip sites were writing that Pedro might have struck up a relationship with Orange Is the New Black actress Maria Dizzia, though it’s hard to know what the timeline of their dating would have looked like. Maria is currently married to playwright Will Eno, with whom she shares a daughter, Albertine.

Pedro Pascal was rumored to be dating his The Mentalist co-star Robin Tunney in 2015. Sometimes back, he was linked to Sarah Paulson due to their closeness to one another. However, the two are just best friends as Sarah is currently in a relationship with Holland Taylor.

At present, it appears Pedro is single. Most of Pedro’s social media presence is currently dedicated to his various projects, especially The Last of Us, which is airing on HBO and HBO Max.


8. Does Pedro Pascal have children?

Fans began to notice a pattern in Pedro’s roles following The Mandalorian Season 1, when it was revealed that his bounty hunter character Din Djarin was more than just a force to be reckoned with — he was also a surrogate father to the world’s cutest alien-slash-puppet, Grogu.

Then, Pedro accepted the role of Joel in The Last of Us, who is also a father figure character to leading teen Ellie (Bella Ramsey, a fellow Game of Thrones alum).

So, does Pedro have any kids? Not currently, but he does spend plenty of time with his nephews, who are partially responsible for his accepting his role in The Last of Us.

Pedro told BBC Radio 1 that he called his sister Javiera when she was driving to discuss his television project options when his nephews, who were sitting in the backseat of the car, intervened. “The Last of Us? You have to do it, you have to get this job!” he recounted, and the rest, as they say, is history!


9. What is Pedro Pascal’s net worth?

Pedro Pascal’s net worth has surpassed the million-dollar mark.

As of this writing, Celebrity Net Worth reports that Pascal is working with a net worth of $10 million. This figure directly reflects Pedro’s work as an actor.

Keep in mind, Pedro has not one, but seven award wins under his belt and 15 nominations to date. Plus, Pedro has been cast on high-ranking series such as The Last of Us and Game of Thrones which is known to bring in some serious coins.

So, if Pedro continues his streak of landing notable roles, his bank account will skyrocket.

10. What are Pedro Pascal’s social media accounts?

Pedro has a reputation on social media as the “Daddy of the Internet,” and many users have tried to track him to follow up on his daily moves.

While many of his peers have multiple ways to reach them online, Pedro likes to keep his social media activities simple. The actor only has an active Instagram account, @pascalispunk, which has over 6.3 million followers. Pedro frequently uses his Instagram to promote The Last of Us, other projects he’s working on, and his allyship for issues like LGBTQ rights. However, fans shouldn’t look to Pedro’s IG for any thirst traps since most of his posts are pretty laid-back.

Pedro’s Instagram account is the only social media handle he claims. And while he knows he’s a hot topic on TikTok, he has denied owning a public account. When asked about the app at the 2023 Oscars, though, Pedro gave fans some hope that he has a secret TikTok, after all.

“I have … no, I don’t,” Pedro responds when Ashley Graham asks about TikTok.

After a sneaky laugh, Ashley tells Pedro to get on TikTok because “everyone loves you on there.” The compliment prompted Pedro to admit to having “a secret one” somewhere.
