In April, Pedro Pascal had commented on certain aspects of the series and how the video game loyalty process has been. “There’s a very, very creative way of honoring what’s important and preserving what’s iconic to the video game experience, and also including things that you wouldn’t necessarily expect,” a- he said in an interview with GQ UK.
In addition, noted that his character looked very interesting and that he liked the game, even though he couldn’t play it. “It’s so sad that I don’t have any skills. I tried, you know. And then it was only a matter of minutes before I had to hand it over to my nephew.”
