While all that comes to mind when you talk about Pedro Pascal at the moment is The Last of Us, you'll be forgiven if you've forgotten that he actually starred in The Mandalorian.
For those who've never watched the hit Disney+ show, Pascal plays Mando himself in the hit Star Wars spin-off series.
The long-awaited third season of The Mandalorian is launching in March, following a record-breaking first two seasons.
In fact, The Mandalorian season three trailer has actually broken a record of its own for the highest viewed Disney+ trailer ever.
In the trailer, our titular Mandalorian vows to journey to Mandalore seeking forgiveness, though that could bring him into conflict with fellow Mandalorian Bo Katan (Katee Sackhoff), who we spotted in the throne room in a previous trailer.
As those who have watched the series will know, Mando's armor is not exactly the smallest.
Speaking to Empire Magazine, Pascal opened up about the challenges of wearing the intimidating armor.
He said: "It’s like putting on a head-to-toe glove with weights on it.
"It’s ironic that you can’t see any facial expression because it puts you in the world so completely, and instantly makes the character feel real — but you can’t see s***."
"They’ve continued to finesse and make it more comfortable, but it’s like going blind.
"Your breath completely fogs up the narrow slit that you can see through.
"There’s no peripheral vision. If there’s a hole, I’m gonna fall into it."
While The Mandalorian costume does not exactly sound the most comfortable, Pascal says he feels pretty invincible in it.
"When it’s on, you immediately feel powerful, protected, dangerous and like a protector," he said.
Pascal has also been speaking to Empire Magazine about the much-anticipated third outing.
He teased to the outlet that the new season will delve further into Mandalorian mythology Filoni, which helped establish The Clone Wars.
Pascal said: "What I love most about Season 3 is how much the world opens up in terms of Mandalore and Mandalorians.
"That means so many different facets of culture, politics, and rules and discoveries. Delicious doors are flying wide open."
For season three, all the cast from season two are back on board, including Katee Sackhoff, Carl Weathers, Emily Swallow, Giancarlo Esposito, Omid Abtahi, and Amy Sedaris.
Christopher Lloyd is also set to appear in a guest role, while Misty Rosas also filmed an undisclosed role.
Jon Favreau is also back once more as the main writer, with Dave Filoni co-writing two episodes and Noah Kloor another one.
Season three drops on March 1.
