The Chilean-born actor recently attended an interview with Esquire, where he was asked about many things related to his two hit shows, The Last of Us and The Mandalorian.

Now, it is hard to believe that Pascal is saying the actual truth. After all, many actors in the past have lied or tried to hide information about their upcoming projects. But it is no secret that Season 2 would adopt the second part of the game. However, it also doesn’t mean that it would not deviate from the source material.
