11 of Pedro Pascal’s Most Memorable TV Shows and Movies

It’s hard to imagine a world before Daddy Pascal Pedro Pascal was a household name. But, before landing his breakthrough role on Game of Thrones as Oberyn Martell, the actor had several one-off roles in TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and CSI.

While Oberyn Martell was featured only in season four of the hit fantasy HBO series, Pascal left his mark on the show as the beloved Red Viper of Dorne. His gruesome and tragic death certainly contributed to his character’s memorability, but the charm and talent the actor brought to the role didn’t hurt either.

After Game of Thrones, Pascal’s career quickly picked up. He had recurring roles in Graceland and The Mentalist that same year, followed by a major role in Netflix’s Narcos series, in which he portrayed the Drug Enforcement Administration agent who helped take down Pablo Escobar.

It wasn’t long before the Emmy-nominated actor began landing scene-stealing roles in movies like Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Wonder Woman 1984 and The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.

Being cast in massive TV shows like The Mandalorian and The Last of Us solidified his place among the A-list, which led to parts in Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated Gladiator 2 and Marvel Studios’ The Fantastic Four.

Despite his appearance in massive projects, Pascal has maintained an interest in smaller, indie-like films, including Sundance Film Festival darling Freaky Tales and his upcoming role in Drive-Away Dolls.

Below, The Hollywood Reporter rounds up some of Pascal’s most well-known films and TV shows, as well as a few of his most anticipated roles.
