Pedro Pascal Talks The Helmet And Teasing Spin-Off Appearances

The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal talks about the Helmet removal in the most recent season. It had been reported (wrongly) that Pascal had decided to leave The Mandalorian because his face was always covered. Though clearly the transition of Din Djarin from fanaticism to fatherly love was always planned in Season 2.

Pascal recently spoke with IndieWire about his most recent gig in WW84, and of course talk turned to the most recent season of The Mandalorian.

“The entire idea of getting to inhabit somebody who, since they were a child, no human has seen their face,” said Pascal, “it was almost impossible to imagine the level of nakedness and exposure, the overwhelming paralysis. It can’t happen, but it’s a mission and the child has to be saved. It was a super-exciting dance of profound, incredible restraint and total exposure. I can count on my one hand the lines the character had. On the other hand, he’s desperately trying to hide in a room without a mask with his face exposed. It was cool and it was strange.”

“At that point, I knew what it would mean for everyone to experience that kind of threshold between the character and the child,” he said. “We follow this story for two seasons; there’s this bond that grows between the two of them. He tries to not let himself soften, but he cannot help himself. This practical story logic brought something else about that moment, what it would mean to touch his face. As much as he says this is the way, that doesn’t mean this is the only way,” said Pascal. “I find it fascinating playing with that. We don’t know what he ends up being. He took his helmet off in a room full of people.”

Pascal also teased fans by suggesting some cross-over with upcoming shows. The Mandalorian will be connected to Ahsoka, Rangers of the New Republic, and next to hit screens The Book of Boba Fett. Pascal obviously is not revealing any solid plans for where Din Djarin may show up next. However, the tease is put out there nonetheless.

“I am told what’s happening and what the plan is,” said Pascal, “but I can’t share it. They are in the expansion of this world, where there are so many unexpected surprises and timelines that are going to be dealt with. If the character were to cross over into these worlds, it will be utilized in a way that isn’t meant to be expected. I wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise of whether or not characters from the show we already know are crossing over.”

What do you think of his comments as Pedro Pascal Talks about the helmet removal scene? Do you think Din will eventually abandon his fanatical belief? Will Pascal’s face will be on screen more often going forward? Leave your thoughts below as always.
