Actor Pedro Pascal addressed the fact that some fans call him “daddy” even though he isn’t one.

The 48-year-old discussed the nickname, which he said he finds amusing, during a Drama Actor Roundtable, according to Entertainment Weekly. The conversation included fellow Hollywood stars Evan Peters, Jeff Bridges, Kieran Culkin, Damson Idris, and Michael Imperioli.

“Yeah, I am having fun with it,” Pascal said of being called “daddy.” He took on father figure roles in “The Mandalorian” and the apocalyptic drama “The Last of Us.”

“It seems a little role-related. There was a period where the Mandalorian is very daddy to baby Grogu, and [‘The Last of Us’ lead character] Joel is very daddy to Ellie. These are daddy parts. That’s what it is.”

Bridges asked Pascal, “Are you a daddy?”

“I’m not a daddy,” Pascal replied. “And I’m not gonna be a daddy!”

“I’m a daddy,” Culkin said. “Nobody likes my daddy parts.”

“What did you just say? ‘Nobody likes my daddy parts’?” Pascal asked as the actors laughed.

Culkin joked, “They like your daddy parts.”

This wasn’t the first time Pascal talked about being cast as a father figure despite not actually being one in real life. The Chilean-born star called himself a “cool, slutty Daddy” after being addressed as “the daddy of the internet” during a red carpet interview with Entertainment Tonight. He also said being a “daddy” was “a state of mind” during a Vanity Fair lie detector test. “I’m your daddy,” he said. 

Pascal is not married and has no children. He’s an avowed leftist with a particular interest in LGBTQ causes due to his sibling, Lux Pascal, identifying as transgender. 

“She is and has always been one of the most powerful people and personalities I’ve ever known. My protective side is lethal, but I need her more than she needs me,” Pascal said of Lux in April while speaking with Esquire. 


Lux previously said Pascal was an integral part of coming out. “He has been an important part of this. He is also an artist and has been a guide. He was one of the first to give me the things that formed my identity,” Lux told the Chilean magazine Ya.
