Pedro Pascal left from The Mandalorian?
According to sources for YouTuber Grace Randolph, half of Season 2 would have been shot without the actor in the costume. Worse, the upcoming season 3 could even be done entirely without him on screen. The reason ? Pedro Pascal would be bored / frustrated to show up on the sets in order to end up never showing his face to the camera and not being able to act freely. Also, he would have asked to do more than the vocals in post-production and to be replaced by his liners during the shooting.
A rumor that surprises
A revelation which has something to surprise, but which is to be taken with enormous tweezers as nothing is official. As the Inverse site reminds us, this decision of the actor would even go against his behavior during season 1. In an interview with Vulture, Brendan Wayne – one of the linings of Pedro Pascal, revealed including this, ” One of the best things about Pedro is that he doesn't tell it to himself. He's just an actor. He loves learning and collaborating. He's great at it .”
Likewise, Phil Szostak – an artist from Lucasfilm, recently confessed that he visited the sets of The Mandalorian during the last month of filming of Season 2 in February and met Pedro Pascal there. What therefore to undermine the hypothesis of his departure along the way this year.
So, info or poison? We'll probably have to wait until October 30 to learn more about it.
