Pedro Pascal is an actor known for portraying several antiheroic figures. He had played similar archetypal roles in both The Mandalorians and The Last of Us.
In The Last of Us, he ended up being perfectly cast as Joel Miller, who does all terrible things to survive in a fallen world. Another iconic portrayal of him was of Oberyn Martell in GOT, who has eight illegitimate daughters known as Sand Snakes.
There’s no doubt he must be paid a substantial fee for portraying these characters. So, let’s know how much he was paid for each role.
Pedro Pascal’s Lucrative TV Roles
Each and every actor has something that defines them. And that’s what Pedro Pascal became—known for his role as a fatherly figure who protects his child from anything that goes wrong in his/her way.
His roles in major series like Game of Thrones, The Last of Us, and The Mandalorian gave him a distinct recognition in the industry.
As per the Style Caster, he holds a total net worth of $10 million, most of which came from playing these roles. Know how much he was paid for portraying the roles in GOT, The Last of Us, and The Mandalorian.
1. The Last of Us
In the post-apocalyptic thriller, Pedro Pascal portrays Joel Miller, a middle-aged survivor of a pandemic caused by a zombie-morphing infection.
His mission is to save Ellie (Bella Ramsey), a 14-year-old girl immune to the infection. For this, he was paid $60,000 per episode. And for Season 1, which has a total of 10 episodes, it makes a total of $6 million.
2. The Game of Thrones
Pascal got a big breakthrough in playing the charismatic prince of Dorne, Oberyn Martell, in GOT. But his character was short-lived, as he was killed in Season 4.
When it comes to his salary, he made most of his stint in Season 4 because his appearance was so brief in it. He was believed to fetch between $40K-$90K as per The Things.
3. The Mandalorian
Pedro Pascal has been playing the role of Din Djarin in The Mandalorian since 2019. Djarin is “a battle-worn bounty hunter, surviving in the New Republic with the foundling Grogu.”
His paycheck in earlier seasons is undisclosed. But as per The Things, his paycheck in Season 3 is $400,000 to $500,000 per episode. This makes a total of $3.2-$4 million from 8 episodes of Season 3.
Pedro Pascal Loves Playing a Dad
It would be shocking to know that this 47-year-old doesn’t actually have children in real life. He may be the best on-screen father, but he’s not even in a public relationship with anyone. Speaking about his fatherly roles, Pascal told The Hollywood Reporter:
“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.”
While The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent star has an expansive list of acting credits under his belt, one thing that everyone loves about him (and will forever be) is a certain type of character he loves to play: dad.
