Life Before Fame
Pedro Pascal born as José Pedro Balmaceda Pascal on April 2, 1975, in Santiago Chile. His father, José Balmaceda worked as a fertility doctor, meanwhile, his mother is a Child Psychologist. He grew up as the eldest in the family alongside his younger brother, Luca Balmaceda who is an actor just like him, based in Chile. He belongs to Spanish roots. His parents had moved to Denmark before migrating to the US after facing Political disturbances. His parents were granted political asylum for supporting the opposition against the military dictatorship during the ’80s.
Pedro grew up in Orange County, Texas, and sub-Antonio, Texas where he involved in competitive swimming at the age of 11. He attended the Orange County School of Arts and studied drama from an early age. Pascal was so much passionate about acting that led him to study acting in his high school. He then went to study arts at the New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts which is a training ground for artists, filmmakers, and scholars of the arts.
Married or Single?
Pedro Pascal is most probably single as of 2020. However, as per sources at one time, he was rumored to be in a relationship with his co-actress from Game of Thrones, Lena Headey. She is famous for playing Cersei Lannister in the series. The couple was seen together on many occasions due to which rumors start to spread that they were dating.
Additionally, the rumor fueled after Lena uploaded a picture on her Instagram account in April of 2014 with a caption ”Sunshine Love”. Later, they were seen picturing together where Lena can be seen hugging Pedro. Despite the rumor, there is no credible source to confirm the news.
Furthermore, in 2018, Lena married her childhood sweetheart, Dan Cadan and shares a seven-year-old daughter, Teddy. When Pedro was asked about his love status, he replied saying:
If I was to stop and think about dating, I don’t know how that could be managed with the schedule I’ve had. I suppose that sounds a bit arrogant. But if I want to get involved in something, I want to pay attention to it, and I want to nurture it.
Well, that suggests the 44-year-old is not interested in love at present and wants to focus on his career. Saying that at the start of 2020, he gave a hint about his loved one by uploading a picture on his Instagram. We can clearly see a couple kissing each other in the picture during the time of sunset. As of now, let’s assume him to be single until the Game of Thrones actor confirms his relationship status in the media. Besides, he is free of controversies at present
