While Pedro Pascal has embraced his “daddy” story in recent years, Bella Ramsey fears it may have gone too far.
During an interview with Vanity pursepublished online Thursday, The last of us star opened up about sharing the actor with the rest of the world online, but that the trend doesn’t feel the same as when it started.
“I was very into it at first, but now I’m afraid it’s gone too far,” said Ramsey. ‘I don’t know if he still likes it; I have to ask him. He’s a global phenomenon as he should be because he’s quite spectacular.”
Pascal has made several interview clips go viral on social media acknowledging his “daddy” title.
Most recently, during The Hollywood Reporter’During the annual Drama Actor Roundtable, it was noted that 1.5 million pages come up when Pascal’s name and “daddy” are googled. While chatting, The Mandalorian star clarified that while he’s “having fun with it”, the story “seems a bit role-related”.
“There was a period where the Mandalorian is very daddy to baby Grogu, and Joel is very daddy to Ellie,” he explained. “These are dad parts. That’s what it is.”
Pascal then playfully said, “I’m not a father and I’m not going to be a father.”
He has also previously described himself as a “cool, slutty daddy” during a January interview with Entertainment tonight. And last year he called himself a “bigger dad” than Oscar Isaac during Vanity pursethe lie detector test. “I’m older than him,” he added at the time. “Although he’s a real daddy. He has kids and I don’t, but daddy is a state of mind.”
Also during Ramsey’s interview with the magazine, the Game of Thrones alum shared what it was like working opposite Pascal on the HBO series. “I felt right at home on set,” said Ramsey, who plays Ellie Williams. “It’s the first time I feel like I really belong somewhere. It wasn’t even like ‘I want to do it forever’ — I was like ‘I to have Unpleasant.’ There is no other option.”
As for what fans can expect for season two of The last of usRamsey added, “It’s darker. It really is a story about revenge, and a continuation of the first season about the dangers of unconditional love.”
