Why Pedro Pascal Ended Up in the Hospital While Filming The Mandalorian Season One

Before you go running for bandaids for your favorite Mandalorian, IG-11 fixed him up just fine. As it turns out, Pedro Pascal’s accident happened on the way to the set when he wasn’t paying attention. In the discussion with co-stars Gina Carano and Carl Weathers as well as executive producers and creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, Pascal said, “I stepped out of the makeup trailer looking at my sides and walked into a piece of plywood. I have never gone to the hospital for work before.”

What’s even crazier is that he was already made up for the scene where his helmet was removed, so he looked pretty bad on top of the fact that he was cut up in real life. Favreau also joked that the medical folks at the hospital were like “let him in,” because of the makeup. The bridge of Pascal’s nose was injured and required seven stitches. 

Of course, in true Mandalorian fashion, Pascal went right back to work after getting his nose sewn back together, prompting Carano to say, “I thought it was so cool.” Filoni added that he thought it was “method” to have Pascal film a scene where Din is all beat up for real. Oddly enough, for most shows, an actor getting a facial injury on set might be an issue, but for a series that has a rule that this character never shows his face, it wasn’t that big of a deal.
