Who is hiding under Din Djarin’s helmet and armor, in The Mandalorian? The answer is complicated…
Peter Pascal revealed in an interview the open secret that we all knew about The Mandalorian: only puts the voice to the protagonist Din Djarin, the body is that of other actors. Although it has not always been so.
Peter Pascal He is known on social media as the ideal adoptive father, and there are a lot of memes about it. In The Mandalorian he plays a Mandalorian who adopts Grogu, and in The Last of Us a father who has lost her daughter, and “adopts” teenager Ellie to protect her from her.
Interestingly, both works are related in more ways, as we will see.
Pedro Pascal only provides the voice in The Mandalorian
The Chilean actor has participated in a round table with other actors, organized by The Hollywood Reporter. In statements collected by HobbyConsolas.comrecognizes that it is almost never inside Din Djarin’s armor and helmet.
“There was a lot of experimentation, being in the suit for a long time, and frankly, my body was not prepared for the task in the four months it lasted. But she was on it. I was in it a significant amount, an elastic amount. But now we’ve figured it out, which is great and surprisingly, it gave me the opportunity to go and do something else.”
It was very hard for Pedro to ride with his armor and helmet on, since the heat generated is unbearable. Although in the first season she shot quite a few scenes with the suit on, in the third his work has been limited to putting the voice.
This has allowed him to “do something else.” Refers to the HBO series The Last of Us, where he is also the protagonist.
If Pedro Pascal isn’t in The Mandalorian suit… who puts body to Din Djarin? Actually, they are two actors.
Brendan Wayne He is the one who appears in the dialogue and acting scenes. lateef crowder he gets inside the armor in action scenes.
So, if you watch The Mandalorian dubbed, you won’t see any Pedro Pascal there. Only in the original version, you will be able to hear his voice. Din Djarin’s body is put up by Brendan Wayne and Lateef Crowder. It is the same case as the Dath Vader character, whose voice and body belong to different actors.
