Pedro Pascal has a lot of films in production this year. The former Game of Thrones cast member had a fantastic start to 2023 with HBO’s The Last of Us, where his depiction of Joel won over both audiences and reviewers. His role earned him a nomination for his first-ever Emmy. Pascal is reportedly joining the MCU, and his potential role will thrill fans even more. However, there was a possibility of him joining Marvel almost 9 years ago.

Almost every role that Pascal did pushed him higher toward his stardom, which has been on the rise since his Game of Thrones days. During a recent panel at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversations, Pascal revealed,

“I got Narcos because of Game of Thrones – they were shocked to know that I was available, because the fight scene had not aired yet. So, really, this is a major [confession]. I did audition for [Narcos]. I did not get the part. They offered it to somebody else, and then that person fell out.”

The Last of Us star also went on to reveal he almost entered the MCU 9 years ago, “But, at that point, the fourth season of Game of Thrones was airing, and when the actor fell out of the role, I was auditioning for Daredevil for Marvel. It was like a supporting character [for Daredevil] You know, ‘Character Number Six.’ He was a lawyer, I can’t remember the name…I was going to test for that role, and so, to intercept the test, they ended up offering me the Narcos [role]. It was like Netflix against Netflix.”
