Pascal’s set gave off soothing parenting vibes, turning the Chilean American actor into an affluent Ivy League dad.

In short, fatherhood is good for Pascal. Although he may not have children of his own, the 47-year-old has captured hearts playing the surly but gentle type of surrogate father, whether as bounty hunter Din Djarin in “The Mandalorian” or as Joel Miller in HBO’s post-apocalyptic drama “The Last of Us.” (HBO and HBO Max are also owned by CNN’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.)

These pseudo-parental performances have, in the eyes of many social media users, earned Pascal the sexually charged title of “Dad.” (The “PedroPascalDaddy” hashtag, for example, has more than 18 million views on TikTok alone.) It’s a status Pascal has embraced with open arms. “Dad’s a state of mind, you know? He told Vanity Fair in a 2022 interview, boldly adding, ‘I’m your dad.’ Pascal’s acknowledgment of his status didn’t stop there. During a red carpet interview with Entertainment Tonight in January, as he stared straight into the camera, he took it a step further and said, “I’m your cool, slutty daddy.”

Now the actor is also fueling the fire sartorially. On another red carpet promoting “The Mandalorian” earlier this month, he donned a brown-collared waffle-knit shirt and red tailored pants, both from Acne Studios. Against a sea of ​​black blazers, these understated, colorful and cozy knits read as carefree, comfort-focused and a testament to a mature man in full control of his aesthetic. For Pascal, being a dad is not only a state of mind, but also a state of dress.
