‘The Mandalorian’ star Pedro Pascal recently explained in an interview with Entertainment Weekly how he can perform the role at a high level.

What’s going on?

Pascal recently told Entertainment Weekly his acting needed to improve in order to perform a role where he’s mostly behind a helmet.

  • “I’m not even sure if I would be able to do it if it weren’t for the amount of direct experience that I’ve had with being on stage to understand how to posture yourself, how to physically frame yourself into something and to tell a story with a gesture, with a stance, or with very, very specific vocal intonation,” he said.

Pascal said he works with “Mandalorian” creator Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni to learn more about the role and how to portray the Mandalorian character.

Rumors popped up over the summer that Pascal had left “The Mandalorian.”

  • Grace Randolph — who has reported on “Star Wars” rumors — said that Pascal left production of the Disney Plus show after he “had numerous disagreements with the creative team and went to the studio behind their backs to plead his case, which allegedly resulted in the former ‘Game of Thrones’ star being given his marching orders,” according to We Got This Covered.

Pascal later posted on social media to praise Ludwig Göransson, who created the Emmy-nominated score for “The Mandalorian.”

He has since posted photos praising his co-star Cara Dune, too, which suggests he’s still on the show and has not left the program.
