A desolated man who has lost everything, an orphaned child who needs to be delivered to a location, and the two end up forming an unbreakable bond – Pedro Pascal has been ruling 2023 with this exact same storyline. His recent outing as Joel in HBO’s adaptation of The Last of Us was loved by fans and critics alike, but the actor admitted that filming the show was really tough.

Pedro Pascal opens up about his experience filming The Last of Us

In a recent interview, Pascal told Insider, “It was incredibly challenging. But it was more fun than anything else because of how delicious the scripts are, the characters, the creators, the team, putting it all together, the locations, the cultural environment of being in Canada and having a Canadian crew and all of these elements that fell into line with one another…It didn’t mean that it wasn’t hard work, and that it wasn’t a very specific kind of physical labor for everyone.”

What does Pedro Pascal think about Joel saving Ellie?

Pascal told Empire Magazine in an earlier interview, “He’s just riding this unconscious wave of delusion mixed with gratitude. Even though it comes with such a big lie, it doesn’t feel like a lie in his heart, because he has her back and they’re going home. It’s the first time he’s able to share a memory that makes him happy, because he’s with the person that makes him the happiest – his daughter, Ellie. Ellie can smell the sense of what’s in his unconscious, and something’s off. It isn’t until he’s under her lens of truth that it all comes tumbling down. And he has to lie to keep it going.”
