Pedro Pascal may portray a man in an imminent amount of danger, but behind the scenes, he appeared to love filming The Last of Us.
On the night the show’s episode 7 premiered on HBO Max, Pedro’s co-star Bella Ramsey delighted fans with a surprise look at the leading man working on the hit apocalyptic drama. In a series of photos posted to her Instagram, the actor showed off his silly side, which included a broomstick fight with a fellow crew member. Bella also shared pictures of the hydroelectric-plant-turned-settlement viewers recently became familiar.
“Ep 5/6 film,” Bella wrote about the surprise post on February 26.
Given how The Mandalorian actor has been sparse in sharing his own hidden moments from filming, fans got riled up after this insight into The Last of Us. As expected, they immediately reacted with excitement.
“These are the best behind the scenes on the internet so far 🙌❤️,” one person wrote in the comments. “Already thinking about how I’ll miss these pictures when season 01 is over! 😭,” another added. “Bella and Pedro ❤️🔥,” a different follower said.
But Bella isn’t the only one who has opened up about their friendship. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum shared what it was like to instantly click with Bella and the rest of the cast.
“We had such a great time [making The Last of Us] and it’s such a rare experience where you get to bond to this degree,” he told the outlet. “You almost feel like if you have a really good experience, it’s asking for too much that it’d be well received or that experience be translated to an audience, but that’s the intention and what our whole [team wants] more than anything.”
Well, Bella and Pedro can consider it mission accomplished.
