Actor Pedro Pascal is going viral for a wholesome reason.
The popular actor, who previously appeared in “Game of Thrones” and the “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian,” bought Five Guys for an entire plane carrying the cast and crew of the hit HBO series “The Last of Us.”

The viral photograph made its way to the Made Me Smile subreddit, where it was posted by user Metalhead_chloeque who used the Favorite People tag. Plenty of fans agreed that Pedro Pascal was one of their favorite actors.
“Idk what it is about him, I just wanna support the dude. He looks like he’s a really down-to-earth guy. So glad he is shining so bright lately,” one fan commented. “Can you imagine having a s***ty day at your dead-end job then f***ing Joel walks in and asks for 200 cheeseburgers?” another follower joked.
Although “The Last of Us” has finished airing for the first season, production has yet to start on the second season. Instead, Pascal has been making headlines in recent weeks for his role in “The Mandalorian,” which is currently airing its third season on Disney+.
Pedro Pascal Says His ‘The Mandalorian’ Armor Isn’t As Comfortable As His ‘The Last Of Us’ Outfit
In a recent interview with Empire, “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” star admitted that, although his “The Mandalorian” armor might be able to protect him from clickers, it is not that comfortable to wear.
“It’s like putting on a head-to-toe glove with weights on it,” he said. “It’s ironic that you can’t see any facial expression because it puts you in the world so completely, and instantly makes the character feel real, but you can’t see s—.”
Fortunately, the helmet has gone through several revisions as the season progressed to make it more comfortable to wear. “They’ve continued to finesse and make it more comfortable, but it’s like going blind. Your breath completely fogs up the narrow slit that you can see through,” he explained. “There’s no peripheral vision. If there’s a hole, I’m going to fall into it.”
That being said, once he is inside the costume, Pascal says that “you immediately feel powerful, protected, dangerous, and like a protector.” That’s exactly what his character of Din Djarin is to Grogu, just like Joel is to Ellie.
But The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Alum Isn’t The Only Actor Inside The Costume!
Although Pedro Pascal is easily identifiable once he takes his helmet off, he is not the only actor underneath the armor, especially when it comes to heavy action scenes. The grandson of acting legend John Wayne, Brandan Wayne, and Lateef Crowder, have both worn the iconic beskar armor.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly on their Star Wars podcast Dagobah Dispatch, Pascal said that it was always intended to be a “collaborative process” to bring the character of Din Djarin to life on the small screen.
“It’s been a collaborative process from the beginning,” Pascal said. “I was given the opportunity to establish physical specificity in some ways at the start of the show, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t observing and picking up from what they’re doing and handing over so much of it as well. They do the heavy lifting.”
Pascal revealed that he has actually known Crowder for years, as the two had previously worked together on films like “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” and “Triple Frontier.” Pascal said, “When I knew he was going to be putting on the suit for this, I was like, ‘Yes! I’m gonna look so cool!'”
Although Star Wars is a major franchise, Pascal did admit that there were concerns about whether or not Din Djarin would be “compelling” to audiences.
“That’s a big safety net. But there were things, like, will this character be compelling?” he continued. “Will people want to follow him through these adventures? Will the richness of this parent-child relationship really reach everyone? So to see all of that surpass expectation is really exciting.”
Whether fans are tuning in to watch Din Djarin on his adventures or just tuning in to see what Baby Yoda will eat next, new episodes of season 3 of “The Mandalorian” are released each Wednesday on Disney+.
