Pedro Pascal fell asleep after having his eyes gouged out in Game of Thrones


Nothing says relaxation quite like bloody, fleshy patches on your face.

Phenomenon Pedro Pascal doesn’t look like stopping anytime soon, with his two big projects as Joel Miller from HBO’s The Last of Us and The Mandalorian in the hit Disney+ series. Additionally, he recently did a hilarious interview on First We Feast’s spicy Hot Ones show, detailing his time in Game of Thrones, Narcos and the early days of his acting career.

One of the most surprising facts mentioned in the interview is that Pedro actually fell asleep while performing his brutal death scene in Game of Thrones. Yes, we’re talking about the one where Gregor Clegane, aka the Mountain, uses his fingers to gouge out Oberyn Martell’s eyes, ultimately crushing his entire head in the process. But while fans cried in horror at the sight of Oberyn’s face obliterated, Pascal slept like a baby.

During the interview, the actor explains how hot it was during the filming of this scene, along with a four-day shoot of the famous Mountain vs. Viper showdown. Still, the pool of blood he had to lie in was cool enough to comfort him, despite the scorching temperatures, and the chunks of fabricated flesh were almost like the cucumbers you put on your eyes at a spa. As a result he fell into a peaceful slumber; as he says, “It was very cathartic and I fell into the deepest sleep I’ve ever been in.”

The actor also discusses how gentle Hafthor Julius Bjornsson (the mountain) was during the scene, feeling no pressure or weight from Hafthor’s well-built physique (who is widely known as one of the world’s strongest athletes).

The interview with The Hot One certainly has more intriguing and hysterical moments, including his love for Grogu in the Mandalorian series and his insane reactions to the spicy food. With that in mind, it proves Pedro Pascal is here to stay and we can’t wait to see what other performances he brings to the table and hopefully it doesn’t mean his eyes are going to be plucked out.
