In the hit Disney+ Star Wars spinoff, Pascal plays the lead role of Din Djarin, a Mandalorian bounty hunter who takes a young child of Yoda’s species under his wing.
During an appearance on The One Show, Pascal, whose other credits include Netflix crime drama Narcos and Wonder Woman 1984, addressed one of the misconceptions that has circulated about the show’s development.
It had been suggested by some fans that Pascal wanted his character to reveal his face more frequently. So far, the character has only shown his face in two of the 15 episodes to date due to his adherence to ancient Mandalorian tradition.
“That is not true, actually,” Pascal replied, when asked whether he had pushed the creators for more facial screen-time. “It’s a really wonderful way of telling the story.
“It’s always been a very clear creed for the character and the collaborative process of the whole thing, we’ve all been on the same page with this. So what I want is for them to make the best show possible, however they get that done.”
The final episode of The Mandalorian’s second season will be released on Disney+ on Friday.
Last week, Disney announced a number of new Star Wars projects for their streaming service, including two Mandalorian spin-offs.
