Pedro Pascal was crying to help Gabriel Luna get into character

In a recent interview with Variety, The Last of Us Episode 6 director Jasmila Žbanić revealed Pedro Pascal cried every time they filmed Joel and Tommy’s emotional and heartfelt reunion with a different take. She said, “It’s a very emotional scene for Pedro. I was filming him as a second; first we filmed Gabriel, and then I noticed that each time we repeated, Pedro was crying. He was not on camera, but he was crying because he was giving his partner everything so that he can act.”

Pascal and Gabriel Luna (Tommy) each tried multiple different takes on the material and suggested changes of their own. Žbanić said, “This is very special. It’s so generous of an actor to do this so deeply. I was amazed by Pedro’s talent.”

Will Joel return in The Last of Us Season 2?

Yes, Joel, played by Pedro Pascal, will return in Season 2. However, if they are to follow the games strictly, he will not survive for very long.
