🚨 There are spoilers ahead for The Last of Us and The Mandalorian. 🚨
It's no secret that 2023 really belongs to Pedro Pascal. Between his award-worthy turn as Joel Miller in The Last of Us, the return of The Mandalorian, and one of the best Saturday Night Live hosting appearances in recent memory, it's Pedro's world, and we're just living in it.
Now, while Pedro has an expansive list of acting credits under his belt, one thing everyone loves pointing out is that there's a certain type of character he loves to play: dad.
Whether it's fighting clickers alongside Ellie (Bella Ramsey) in a post-apocalyptic world or protecting Grogu, aka Baby Yoda, from a whole universe of enemies, Pedro is just really good at playing a dad.
Speaking about how he just always seems to be cast as a father figure, Pedro told the Hollywood Reporter, "You start to recognize a thread between your characters that you didn't necessarily look for, but got cast in."
"I don't have kids. I've only learned through these characters how painfully vulnerable one becomes and how much your life depends on their life being OK," he added. "It's a fun fantasy to fulfill, and I'll play as many dads as I can get."
I think I speak for everyone when I say, please, Pedro, never stop playing our favorite dads.
So, to celebrate Pedro and his now iconic dad roles, below are some of the best reactions to Pedro's work:
