Pedro Pascal really REALLY knows how much we all love him
"To have a wave of attention and approval as you say, I'll take it."
Between his roles in Game of Thrones, The Last of Us, The Mandalorian, Narcos and The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent - as well as his hilarious recent guest spot hosting Saturday Night Live - it is safe to say that Pedro Pascal has cemented himself as one of Hollywood's most beloved actors.
So, when JOE got to speak to Pascal about The Mandolarian's upcoming third season, we brought up the "pure amassed love" that is out there for the performer right now and asked him if it was something he was aware of.
As it turns out, Pascal is well aware, with the actor telling us he is happy to receive the love.
"It's very scary because I think that anybody in the business would be lying if they said that they didn't need attention," he explained, before adding: "I shouldn't speak for everybody, I just have to speak for myself. I definitely was seeking attention and approval quite a bit as a child.
"So, to have a wave of attention and approval as you say, I'll take it," Pascal also said before joking: "Never leave me!"
Also, during our chat with the actor, he opened him about his experience hosting SNL, explaining that though he was "terrified" to do it, it would up being a "magical" experience.
"I was terrified to do Saturday Night Live because I am not one to look for challenges to be honest with you, like those," he told JOE.
"It's a testament to [SNL's creator] Lorne Michaels and the cast and the crew and this very well-oiled machine that keeps itself on its toes and alive and ready for anyone whose game to play. It was one of the most, without question, magical experiences I've ever had."
