Pedro Pascal has had a particularly productive year in 2023. The Game of Thrones alum kicked off the year with a bang in HBO’s The Last of Us, and his portrayal as Joel has been lauded by both fans and critics. Pascal is also known to be exceptionally sweet with his fans, however, sometimes that gets him in trouble.

How did Pedro Pascal get an eye infection?

In a roundtable interview for The Hollywood Reporter, Pascal recalled his Game of Thrones days. He said, “I remember, earlier on, because of Game of Thrones and the way my character died — speaking of touching — people were super into taking selfies with their thumbs in my eyes. At first, I was so earnest and happy about the success of the character in the show, I’d let them! And then I remember getting a bit of an eye infection.”


Pedro Pascal initially had second thoughts about playing Joel in The Last of Us

Pascal revealed in an interview a few weeks earlier, “It became very, very clear very quickly how much people loved the game and the experience of playing the game. That was scary because you can get really into a book. You can get really into a series. And this is the next level of getting into an immersive experience of playing these characters.”

“So people’s relationship to that experience is a deep one, and we want to kind of expand on that, meet expectations, surpass expectations, learn something new, show something new, and also honour what is originally there. And we’re exhausted.”
