Pedro Pascal’s ‘SNL’ monologue turns into an emotional argument for immigration
Pedro Pascal, star of the hit series ‘The Last of Us,’ joked in his ‘Saturday Night Live’ monologue over the weekend about looking like a creep while FaceTiming with a 6-year-old fan of his character in “The Mandalorian” – at the request of the boy’s father.
Of course, the kid had “no idea who I am, because my character wears a mask the whole show,” Pascal explained.
“So the guy is like, ‘Just do the Mando voice,'” Pascal continued. “But the Mando voice is, like, a chamber voice. Without the mask, it just sounds porn. So people walking by on the street see me whisper to a 6-year-old child, “I can get you warm, or I can get you cold.”
Then Pascal, born in Chile, slipped into a quick summary of his life that suddenly became emotionally powerful as he talked about moving to the United States. Pascal told the audience that his parents escaped Pinochet’s repressive regime with him and his sister when he was just 9 years old. month.
“They were so brave, and without them I wouldn’t be here in this wonderful country,” he said, his voice cracking. “And I certainly wouldn’t be here with you all tonight.”
Many of his relatives are still in Chile and they love to give out his phone number whenever they can, joked Pascal.
He sent them a heartfelt message, then translated, “I love you, I miss you – and stop giving out my phone number.”
