Hard as Nails
There’s no doubt that Pascal is having a moment because he isn’t a young man. He was 48 when the first season of The Last of Us came out on TV. However, there’s no doubt that this is part of the attraction for some fans. They have a father fantasy about the star and that’s why they can’t get enough of him. Spanish director Pedro Almodovar loves Pascal for his versatility.
The pair worked together on a movie called Strange Way of Life. “I asked Pedro to play someone solid, emotional, crafty, a cheat if necessary, warmhearted,” Almovodar said (via Esquire). “And he played all those nuances with incredible ease. He can be adorably sentimental and hard as nails. He’s a great comic actor, and he can also be impenetrable if necessary.”
