Who Is Pedro Pascal Dating? No News On A Girlfriend Or Wife Allows Gay Rumors To Spread

Pedro Pascal

Pedro Pascal, best known for his role as Oberyn Martell in HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, has long kept his personal life private. Since breaking into the spotlight, the Chilean-American actor’s romantic life has remained chiefly hidden, except for rumors involving Maria Dizzia, Sarah Paulson, and Lena Headey.

Pascal was rumored to be in a relationship with his Game of Thrones co-star Lena Headey in 2014. The rumors began to circulate after the two were frequently seen spending time together. They never confirmed the rumors, however.

The speculation about their alleged relationship grew when Headey announced in 2015 that she was expecting her second child, with many speculating that Pascal was the father. However, the actress soon revealed that Dan Cadan, an English actor, was the father of her daughter, with whom she married in 2018.

Following that, people began to speculate whether the actor embraced homosexuality, fueling rumors of him being gay — because he portrayed a few gay characters on-screen and showed strong support for the LGBTQ+ community on social media. As a struggling actor in his twenties, Pascal had little choice but to play whatever came his way, from obscure roles to masculine gay men.

Speaking out in support of the LGBTQ+ community, the actor took to Twitter on September 28, 2018, and slammed those who thought they were better than women, gays, and people of color. “I’m sorry we’re women, gay, and have brown skin,” Pascal wrote. “These absolute pieces of cowardly [expletive], these hypocritical, lying, soulless flesh bags,” he added. Allow them to have everything they can get their hands on. We keep our souls as well as each other.”

On the occasion of Pride Month, on June 1, 2021, the We Can Be Heroes star took to Instagram. All of that being said, the Narcos star has yet to respond to his relationship rumors — and the lack of a wife or girlfriend in his life isn’t helping to silence the questions about his orientation and relationship status. I’m hoping it’s never too late to discover what’s hidden.

Pascal’s Age-Old Story of Asylum

The Chilean native was born José Pedro Balmaceda Pascal on April 2, 1975, to parents who opposed the US-backed military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet at the time he was born. His parents were granted political asylum in Denmark after the opposition won, so he never grew up in his birthplace. He grew up mostly in Orange County, California, before moving to San Antonio, Texas, and settling in New York, where he has been for over 20 years.

New York has provided him with nearly everything he needs, including a home away from home and a career. Pascal has a sister named Lux Pascal, who was born Lucas Balmaceda as a boy. However, she came out as transgender in February 2021.

Pascal in Joel’s Place In the film ‘The Last of Us,’

The talented actor was cast as Joel in HBO’s The Last of Us in February 2021. The show is based on a well-known videogame of the same name. The story is set twenty years after modern civilization has been annihilated. Haunted by his past, Joel is set to travel across post-pandemic America, protecting humanity’s last hope — a girl.

There is no word on when The Last of Us will be released. However, The Last of Us Series (2022) is listed as an upcoming project in the director’s Instagram bio. This could imply that we can expect it to premiere on HBO in late 2022.
